What will soon be left to do for those who aren't academics? Shall we send them to the desert without water?
We have to keep enough jobs here for everyone, otherwise soon no one will have a penny left for anything or anyone's goods or products, not even the cheap slave labor ( or non union) imports.
We can talk until we are blue in the face that people should take care of themselves, but without jobs for the gifted to the most dense, there aren't too many ways to do so.
We can only get people off Gov dole if we have something for them to get to.
