On the one hand, a non college graduate would escape the concrete conversion into the post modern world, that is a definite plus; but on the other hand, perhaps they'd be more vulnerable to the leftest culture that pervades these work places of post modern worship and altruism.

I champion the one's that succeed without a worthless degree but does that give them any immunity against the idiocies they are likely to be exposed to.

    I must get that book. The one I read was Going Broke by Degree by Richard Vedder. But it was about the financial rip-off undergrad education is.

    Wow...this quote was in the 40's!

    University of Chicago professor Richard Weaver recognized this in the late 1940s when he wrote his famous work, "Ideas Have Consequences". As he notes in the following passage, "the education system as we know it today has become a type of Potemkin Village – a great façade, but nothing of substance supporting it:"

    The post modernist in the 50's made Liberal arts education eventually worthless.

      Post modernism has been spreading, like a cancer. It started small. We are now in stage 4, and most don’t even know it, but can definitely see the symptoms.

        The worst part is it became about political power of the left.
        The movement started when a few thinkers were dismayed at the progress of the attainment of knowledge. They doubted that mankind could actually gain knowledge through reason so they thought to deconstruct everything down to it's most basic principles...but got ugly, they failed... they were stuck in a quagmire.

        Seems to me that they didn't understand the evolution of thought, knowledge, experimentation and technology but what was surprising is the outright denial of knowledge already gained, (the understanding of things on a intimate level; ie, growing food, building machines...all the things that brought us to that point.)
        They expected that mankind would of known everything under the sun in the 1800's. Not to mention, I am sure they observed that not all men could reason effectively...same thing now days...and most are at the extremes, at the top and at the bottom of society.

        How dumb was that?
