I agree with most of your opinions and assessments, for the most part.
The only ones I disagree with is disagreement only to an extent:
I think solar and wind *are* feasible, and should be invested in in a larger scale. Sure, in some places solar can be limited by season, but if
incentives were given to people to individually invest in renewables (such as solar panels on houses/business/etc on a wide scale) it would reduce
energy consumption (and also lowers individual costs). Just think if solar panels on roofs were as common as shingles, or made cheaper. Also, large
scale solar farms in certain places could help, at least partially.
As far as college, I agree it's overpriced, and while I see your point about, for instance, having an engineer take gender studies, part of the point
in education is just that: education. I mean, I took classes that had nothing to do with my major(s), but the point was learning, broadening
perspectives, and increasing knowledge and understanding. These help with life in general.
For the above two issues, I don't that what I have said takes away from what you have stated goal-wise. Some people might think it does, however, as
in "if you don't agree with me 100% about issue X you're commie/liberal/out of touch conservative, etc."
We NEED common ground to reach common goals that I think we *can* agree on, but we have been poisoned that if it's not our political (or partisan)
brand, it's not in our best interest.
