    Look to history and you should be able to figure out the answers to your own question.
    What would the world come to if people actually paid for what they received. The horror.

    Interesting theory.
    We're not exactly giving people free vouchers to sit in at Laura Alfaro lecture halls at Harvard.

    We're sending them to community college...

    Sure, a free education is a good thing, but I don't want to pay for someone else's free education.

    Of course you don't. You won't receive any immediate benefits. Its all about the "me" complex that everyone seems to have.

    Obviously if everyone had 2 years of college everyone could get a job and a better job. No one would have to work in fast foods or any manual labor anymore. Wouldn't that be wonderful!

    Why doesn't the government make everything free? Then there would be no poverty, everyone would have everything they want, and everyone would be happy.

    It's so simple.

    Things that are free have a reputation of sucking.

    Community college is one of those things...

    Then I suppose it's ironic that this entire issue revolves around the me complex you find so much contempt for.

    Really? Love sucks? Friendships suck? Breathing sucks? Learning something sucks? Or do you not believe that people learn every single day of their lives even beyond schools?

    It could. Depends on the relationship.

    It could. Depends on who your friends are.

    Breathing sucks?
    It could. Depends on the air you are breathing.

    Learning something sucks?
    It could. Depends on the learning environment.

    Or do you not believe that people learn every single day of their lives even beyond schools?
    Then why bring up the idea of free 2 year community college education at all? Just let their life experiences guide them to prosperity.

    You're right. I do find contempt in the "me" complex. It is deserving of such.
