    But anyway. Molyneux, who is painted by the Left as a Libertarian kook, actually makes a great deal of sense on a number of topics. Today, while working, I was listening to his thoughts on the Student Loan situation - as he took apart the complaints of the young woman who racked up $90,000 in debt, and nine years later has yet to pay on the actual principal of it.

    The way he breaks it down - and he doesn't even draw the conclusion, at least not strongly - but what it adds up to, is terrifying.

    And demonic, in the PURE EVIL wreaked by the Obamatons, as they nationalized Student Loans.

    It's this way: The universities are jam-packed with MARXIST ACTIVISTS. We know that; we see, in smuggled smartphone vids, what they teach their young charges. They despise America and capitalism and individual freedoms.

    AND, we've all noted, the IRONY - of how they are paid so well, and how they charge their students such huge amounts; how the costs have increased fivefold in a generation.

    And, not incidentally, the balance of males to females has skewed violently in favor of the latter - and the array of absolutely USELESS courses of study, has grown like weeds.

    Here's what the Education syndicate is up to: First, they're overcharging, GROSSLY, for an increasingly-worthless product. They're doing what they accused Trade Schools of doing, 25 years ago - charging all out of proportion to what they deliver; and hustling their young charges into the loans programs to raise the money.

    Meantime, the educrats, from government grade-schools on, promote the false connection, COLLEGE -> SUCCESS. They build the image of how it's REALLY SMART people who have the diploma. So, if you go to koledge, you'll be really-smart, too.

    Stefan takes that logic apart, easily. One might as well ask for a professional NBA Player's contract - because professional basketball players are tall, demand a contract, and that will make you tall, too.

    The interest rate on College Obamaloans is STILL...NINE PERCENT. That was the rate when I was going to college - and in that era of 18-percent auto loans, those were a bargain. You could borrow $3000 with little fear...paying it off might be burdensome, but your future wasn't destroyed.

    Now, in an era of 0-percent Federal Reserve prime rates, of two-percent car loans, koledge loans are...nine percent. And ONLY government can make them.

    And they cannot be dodged. They are not discharged in personal bankruptcies.

    The young woman Stefan referenced, did an opinion piece complaining of her debt, her obligatory overtime, how a couple of years' hard times racked up the penalties; and how nine years after working twelve-hour days, plus commute times, she has yet to pay anything on the principle. She bemoans the lack of options - starting with things as trivial as not having money for evenings out; but then on to how this obligation makes her grossly unattractive to men looking to marry.

    If you're like me, you're saying "Tough toenails."

    BUT...think this one through. This woman's case is not unique - it's becoming ubiquitous. ALL these educated idiots...with all this debt...

    ...HEY! There's a WAY OUT OF THIS! ELECT HARD-LEFT DEMOCRATS WHO PROMISE TO FORGIVE THE LOANS!!.

    And...MAKE KOLEDGE FREE!! Yeah...THAT's the ticket...SOCIALISM!!!.



    Which is exactly what Barry, Hillary, Red Timmy Kaine, the whole cast of idiots in the Dumbo Party...PLUS the plague of perfessers in these sumps of lower-living that used to be universities...what they ALL want.

    Barry's puppetmasters...led him to set the table on this, perfectly. There is NO WAY this juggernaut is going to be stopped.

    What do I think we should do? I don't know. I do think they'll get the loans forgiven.

    I don't know how you can RESIST the pressure to forgive the loans and make koledge "free." Now it's all these SJW bimbos; AND whatever men they're involved with, to the extent they are involved. AND their parents, many of whom cosigned on those insanely-huge loans.

    That's a hell of a coalition there. As Stefan posits, debt is slavery - and slaves aren't mollified with fruitious pronouncements about personal responsibility and the obligation of a borrower to meet the terms of his promissory note.
    This is no big epiphany about the left. It's their known pattern/tactic. They did the same thing with health care, African Americans, and pretty much everything else. Destroy what works, cause hardship, then come to the rescue, because they made it impossible to do it on our own.

    Kinda like the fireman who sets the fires in secret so he can show up on the scene and be the Hero!
