Yes, another AOC thread!!!!
Well kind of, really I have been asking this question for a while now and I feel this is the perfect modern example of higher education, and it's
seeming failure to actually educate; it seems more accurate to call it higher indoctrination. AOC attended Boston University if I remember correctly
(fact check that), which again from my previous knowledge is a fairly prestigious university. In addition to this, AOC received a degree in economics
(Not sure if it was a BA, or BS degree) and graduated. Yes that is right, ECONOMICS.
So here is my question/point of contention; there are really only two possible outcomes that logically explain the behavior of AOC and her seemingly
1) She is actually very intelligent, and is feigning this 'ditsy' entitled moron (Tucker Carlson's words lol) to play the role while pushing a
socialist agenda by any means necessary.
2) Boston University utterly failed in it's Economics program and apparently anyone who can pour a drink and pay the tuition will get the degree. This
in turn leads to the thought that such higher education is a complete lie and a ponzi scheme at best, or a socialist indoctrination apparatus at
The reason I say this is I too have a B.S. degree in Economics from the University of Missouri, which while still a great school is probably not as
prestigious as Boston University. So on a World view scale, her degree would hold more weight than mine simply because of it's origins. HOWEVER, even
a high school educated individual would know more about how the economy works than she does. Between her Amazon blunder and current comments
applauding the potential loss of 10 million blue collar jobs, not to mention her other ridiculous comments on the economy since she took office, it
seems she has absolutely zero working knowledge of what the economy, or even what a 'market,' is.
So which is it? Is she feigning the ignorance, or is our higher education system utterly useless now? Perhaps now higher education now means getting
'high' on your own virtues and narcissism? I know common sense left the building years ago when Obama got elected, but I guess now actual education is
no longer taught?
On a personal note I hope it is answer #1, because at least then we still have hope for our future generations.....
