You think I don't understand your point of view, but I do, as I once used to think as you do. It is you who do not understand my point of view yet. It is immoral to coerce people into being equal. It is envy to support taking rich people's money to feed the poor or to caricature all of them as evil simply because they have more or made prudent business contracts. Charity is good, but coercion is evil.

Well, then that just means universities would have to cut funding to some programs and stop teaching certain courses because they have a budget problem. They would probably have to fire people and cut off degree programs to make it affordable to some students. What about educators? Should they be poor for the students' sake? If prices everywhere go up you can bet education prices are going to go up too because the people working for universities have to adjust to higher prices too. It isn't all one-sided here. Simply protesting the higher prices isn't going to magically take down the price.
If the education market is free, universities, though the prices are higher, still have to compete for the lowest prices. On the other hand if the market is not free, or if private educational institutes are blocked from entry into the market, students just have to deal with higher prices, or force the people not going to college to subsidize them.edit on 20-12-2010 by 547000 because: (no reason given)

We ain't much better up here. Barrack Hussein turned us into a communist country when he passed the new law forcing everyone to pay the new Federal Tax in 2014, even if we don't have jobs.
"ObamaCare" or nationalized healthcare is a new federal tax.
Our failure to apply for ObamaCare by 2014= a $25,000 fine.
Our IRS will then ALSO levy a $750 annual fine on our income taxes. If we file taxes with our wife and have 2 kids, our annual fine will be $750 x 4 = $3,000.
You shouldn't be clamoring Chavez is bad. Barrack Hussein isn't much different than chavez. Notice everything in America has been nationalized? Banks, GM, college loans....nobody can afford homes. Building codes and laws and taxes have made it too expensive for the poor people in America to even have a roof over their heads.
War is coming.
