Germany Eliminates College Tuition--U.S. Students Drown in Debt

http://crooksandliars.com/2014/10/germany-eliminates-tuition-while-americans

snip:

Germany has just joined other nations of the Continental European Union to eliminate all university tuition, as a human right. So it is that we find ourself as part of the neofeudalist American state that has left Americans, by contrast, mired in $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, in what must be described as state-supported student loan slavery. It should further be noted that the modus operandi of student loan enslavement is consistent with the anti-democratic model of what may only be described as the United States of oligarchy. A recent Princeton university study, that has since gone viral from Princeton, has declared the United States is no longer a democracy, and has in fact become an oligarchy. To which this article notes, it is an oligarchy that has mired the American people in $1.2 trillion of student loan debt. This has become so onerous for the American economy to bear that it is now become a threat to the US economy itself.


In Germany a student you get a hand up, in the U.S. students get handed an anvil.

1. What America needs is a socialist government that would abolish tuition in colleges and universities

which would put an end to onerous student loan debt. Also, there needs to be bankruptcy reform--studeent loans should be allowed to be bankruptable.

2. "Loan slavery" - that about sums it up.

And John Oliver nailed it - as he always does on "Last Week Tonight":



If you're not outraged you're not paying attention.
