The United States has the most expensive post-secondary education system in the world. In Part One of this series, I detailed how the government, as well as institutions of higher learning, the media and the banks have loosely conspired to dramatically drive up the costs of a college education and enslave middle class college students through their lifetime by coercing their participation in a system which almost guarantees an adulthood filled with massive debt.
The Exorbitant Cost of a College Education Is No Accident
The elite have created a post-secondary education system which is out of the financial reach of an increasing number of middle class students. This is deliberate and it is NOT being driven by market forces. It is a conspiracy concocted by the wealthy to limit the elite’s children to the dangers of competition from middle class children. Yet, on the other side, the elite have convinced the federal government to fund the college educations of the poor and the disadvantaged so they can create competition for the middle class. The omnipresent goal is to create a bifurcated two-class feudal society and education is the starting point in this plot to control social stratification.
The astronomically rising costs of funding a college education as well as the establishment of predatory lending practices are the weapons of the mass destruction being used against the middle class’ ability to obtain a college degree. This is classic divide and conquer class warfare. However, there are cracks in the educational caste system and I am going to reveal a few strategies which might allow you to provide a college education for your children.
