The Price of College Has Increased 1120 Percent Since 1978, So Is It Worth It? - The Daily Beast


The Price of College Has Increased 1120 Percent Since 1978, So Is It Worth It? - The Daily Beast:

RANT ON: I wish there was a button on FB for me to post and "like this 1 million times so every eligible voter reads this and realizes wealth is over-concentrating at the top and society will collapse, as it has dozens of times in human history due to this dynamic, if this runaway unstable trend is not reversed."

So you know...wealth doesn't protect you when society collapses, even if you are in the top 0.01%!! Don't believe me? Go ask the headless ghosts of Louis the 16th and Marie Antoinette and their children how much the Palace of Versaille protected them when the wealth disparity tipping point was reached in France in 1792. L16 was actually a progressive who tried to abolish serfdom and also was arguably the one person of the late 1700s without which the American experiment would not even have been able to start (he funded Washington's army right when it needed it and also blockaded british ships from delivering supplies to British troops.)

Yet despite his progressive views on society, and desire to reform the system of serfdom, on Jan 21 1793 he was BEHEADED ANYWAY by the french people!! This was just because of the perception/reality that he was part of the "too wealthy" aristocracy. So in our possibly dystopian future, or that of our kids, for sure all rich republicans will be executed by the masses. But also all the rich democrats will also be executed if wealth imbalance gets out of control again. The hungry masses won't check your voting record when they put you in the "Crucifixion? Yes." line. They will just look to see if you look like you make more than $100K/year and ignore your pleadings that you donated time and money to "Occupy Wall Street".

Also, for you geniuses who think your automatic weapons will save you from the roving masses, When 50 million pissed off citizens line up and come after you I can assure you you don't have enough ammo to kill even the tiniest percentage of them before they overwhelm you with their bare hands and kill you and your family. Also the US military is now made up of 1.1 million people with half active and half reserve and 98% of them make lower middle class pay and many actually are at the poverty line. So you can have your own frigging M1 tank and F22 and you will still get your ass kicked.

WAKE THE FUCK UP AND START VOTING TO ADOPT REASONABLE/BALANCED MEASURES TO SLOW AND REVERSE THE OVER-ACCUMULATION OF WEALTH IN TOO FEW HUMANS BANK ACCOUNTS!!! SHEEESH DO WE HUMANS NEVER LEARN!!!???
