Blame the University for Your Piece of Crap Education – Rebutted

“I don’t disagree that college is a waste I’m just saying that for the people who do try to use this piece of crap product that we call college, even though it is terrible, they paid for it, either directly or indirectly with debt from loans or just time in general. So for those people to expect the product to work and blame the manufacturer when it doesn’t work seems reasonable.”


This logic doesn’t necessarily make sense to me. Regardless if the product works or not, the consumer has been persuaded by the advertisement and purchased it. What he does with it after the fact is of no concern to the manufacturer. Whether he burns his degree to a cinder, tries to get a job and fails miserably, or succeeds in becoming the CEO of a Fortune 500 company that is not the result of that product but rather of the person’s perseverance and fortitude. I wouldn’t give any university/college that much credit. By purchasing the product the consumer has placed his complete trust in the product, whatever it is.


Many people want the government to protect the consumer. A much more urgent problem is to protect the consumer from the government.”

Milton Friedman


Another way to look at it is one of voluntaryism. The consumer was not coerced in any way to buy the product but rather willingly purchased his piece of crap education, therefore if he was not previously informed enough as to the limitations of his education that is his problem not the college/university. The manufacturer of any product, although expected to provide a high quality product by the marketplace, can never really be held accountable to its products as long as they were willingly purchased by the public, which they usually are. I suppose an exception to that would be if the manufacturer offers a guarantee that the product will provide a particular function for a particular amount of time, after which the manufacturer is again not liable for the performance of the product. No manufacturer can be blamed for the ignorance of the consumer.


You wasted $150,000 on an education you coulda got for a buck fifty in late charges at the public library.”

Will Hunting


If a product is deemed to be faulty for any reason, the correct path, in my opinion, is to talk about it, blog about it, in short to alert one’s friends and family to not purchase anymore products from that particular business due to its faulty products. I assure you, no business can withstand such a painful blow to its reputation especially when it is widespread. The beauty of the Internet has made searching for complaints of a particular company so much easier with sites like Angie’s list. It must respond either by correcting the deficiencies in its product and thereafter generating more revenue or go bankrupt. This is the ruthless climate of being self-employed in the free market.


The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda – a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make ‘good’ citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens.”

H.L. Mencken


If you see something that I don’t please let me know. To me this is how the free market should work independent of all “government” intervention. In reality “government” intervention perverts this clean self regulating mechanism.


The truth is that schools don’t really teach anything except how to obey orders. This is a great mystery to me because thousands of humane, caring people work in schools as teachers and aides and administrators, but the abstract logic of the institution overwhelms their individual contributions.”

Lower Income, Less Educated, and Voiceless


Lower income is more a result of the people allowing their “government”, gang criminals and sociopaths, to systematically rob them through the Central Banking mechanism of currency creation and usurious interest. A “government” may rob its subjects of their currency by one of two ways. It may outright confiscate their funds through bank holidays, currency controls, levies/appropriations etc or through currency creation (money printing) it can rob their currency of its value. Either way the subject loses and becomes poorer.


Printing money is merely taxation in another form. Rather than robbing citizens of their money, government robs their money of its purchasing power.”

Peter Schiff


Being less educated is again a reflection of the docile idleness that the American public has fallen prey to through mass dumbing down of the mass intelligence through GMO foods, chemtrails, water fluoridation, vaccinations, medications, and government schools. The system is not set up to give people an education, maintain health, or feed them well. We must educate ourselves independently to obtain these things.


I’ve noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don’t really teach anything except how to obey orders.”

John Taylor Gatto, retired American school teacher of 29 years, three time winner of NYC Teacher of the Year and winner of the NYS Teacher of the Year


The people are voiceless because they choose to be. Each person has precisely as much power as he/she desires to have, and nothing more. Saying we are voiceless is only a reflection of one’s pitiful resignation to the rhetoric and will of our rulers. This passive submission to “authority” is really one of the most dangerous of human phenomenon because it permits all the rape, torture, imprisonment, murder, and genocide that we read about in the history books.


It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

Disney Explanation of History

Yes I understand the idyllic nature of controlled experiments. Unfortunately we don’t live in a sterile controlled laboratory and so cannot realistically perform such experiments in many fields that affect human behavior. As I see it, the best we, as rationally discerning human beings, can expect is to study history in its raw uncensored form, identify trends/patterns, and apply logic as best we can. I’m not saying this process of deduction is infallible; simply that it is only recourse we have to make informed decisions. In the absence of controlled experiments it is the best we’ve got.


History is a set of lies agreed upon.”

Napoleon Bonaparte


Amidst all of my research I always try to maintain my humility.  That being said I will not reject the possibility of new information as well as the opportunity to help those around me if I deem that information may be of some service to them. Humility has its place in situations of propriety; however in others when the well being of close friends may be imperiled it becomes a genuine hindrance.


The only thing new in the world is the history you do not know.”

Harry S. Truman, 33rd US President


The “complicated events” you speak of are, in my humble opinion, not complicated at all. They are simply events that have not been presented in such a lucid manner as to render it easily comprehensible to a child. There is no such thing as something too “complicated” for one to understand. This is a wretched admittance of one’s own inadequacy that should not be conveyed to others. I have explained, to the best of my ability, the Mandrake Mechanism, Quantitative Easing, The Federal Reserve, Central Banking, Price/Stealth/Absolute Inflation, Fractional Reserve Lending, the role of Precious Metals in a society, the reason for their banishment etc to many patients, including young teenagers, who I would not consider geniuses or people with high IQs. All of them seemed quite surprised and quite grateful to discover that this is neither elusive nor secretive information privy to only a select few. Rather financial education is something that is palpably lacking in our government education. I do not believe this to be a coincidence.


If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

Albert Einstein


Yes I do emphatically believe with all my heart that unfettered free enterprise is best. I have read the link provided and it immediately transports me back to my history class in my middle/high government school. I understood this clearly as I absorbed the pro-government propaganda laid out by my teachers unquestionably. What hope does a tender impressionable young mind have against legions of authoritative teachers with their coercive curriculums? This is teaching by violent force. This is not the way my children will learn. You can be sure of that.


History is a matter of perspective. While I cannot assert that the history I learned outside of school to be completely objective, I can say there is enormous value in learning history from many differing frames of reference in order to gain a more balanced approach. One must take care where the source originates and who benefits from the telling of history in a particular way. Would we not procure contrasting viewpoints of history told by the slaves or the masters?  Conqueror or the conquered? Husbands or the wives? Doctors or the patients? Rulers or the subjects? Parents or the children? Schoolmaster or the pupils? Debtors or creditors?

The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it.”

John Kenneth Galbraith, US economist, public official, and diplomat


This link points to the over-simplified Disney explanation of the history of our country as it is taught ad nauseum in our government schools. To the best of my knowledge it expounds, please correct me if I am wrong, that government (good) is the white knight that comes to rescue the disenfranchised and under-privileged citizenry from big corporation (bad) who exploits the people for every ounce of their labor for a dreadful pittance. That without our valiant government we all would be working since childhood for 2 dollars an hour for 16 hours a day without bathroom breaks, vacations, or holidays for the rest of our lives until our miserable deaths. Oh and also without the wonderful free government healthcare we would all be incessantly sick and walking over dead bodies on the way to our slave labor at the hands of big fat men with bags of money. This is the drivel I have been force fed since my induction into government education and I refuse to accept any more of it. From now on I am seeking alternative vantage points for my intellectual stimulation. Just as Teddy Roosevelt in this over-simplified article proclaims “No man, no matter how powerful, was above the law.” From which celestial power does this flesh and blood mortal get the authority to determine which business should succeed and which should fail? I assert none, just like the rest of us. Only the free market, open exchange, and the immutable laws of supply and demand have the power to determine the success or failure of any business. No government or despot possesses this wisdom no matter how well intentioned.


A law is an opinion with a gun.”

Stefan Molyneux

Is it any surprise that when one attends US government schools the common narrative spewed is pro- US government history? I don’t think so. Our federal government, self-proclaimed to be the destroyer of monopolistic trusts, is itself the largest monopoly of force and coercion in the land. There is nothing benevolent or gentle about the federal government in its nature or method of action. It does not produce any valuable good or service from which is voluntarily purchased by the people. Voluntary is the key word. If something is forced and not offered voluntarily, this is the fundamental reason why the very essence of government is inhumane, immoral, and wicked. All edicts and decrees issued forth are forced upon the people from the barrel of a gun or by threat of imprisonment or fine. This is not the definition of a civilized society. With slight variations this is the definition of Fascism, Communism, Totalitarianism, Oligarchy, Monarchy, Aristocracy, Kleptocracy etc. Virtually any form of government one can conceive of is the antithesis of Agorism, Voluntaryism, Anarcho-Capitalism, Free Market etc. The name is irrelevant. The principle is what counts and that principle is the Non-Aggression principle. This asserts that anything is possible except those actions which transgress on the freedom and sovereign rights of another.


The duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government.”

Thomas Paine

Potential Silver Supply Shortage Upcoming

This alert should not be taken lightly. One should not relax in confidence knowing that since the price of the metals is quite low that this artificially suppressed climate will maintain itself for much longer. This illusion can only persist if there is sufficient supply to meet the soaring demand. Once this supply dries up, the market will react by soaring tangible assets prices to spectacular heights as can only happen when unquenchable demand meets a brick wall. This is a process as inevitable as it is natural and no Government or Central Bank on Earth can stop it. At some point it behooves us to stop resisting the wave and just ride it. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? We will soon find out.

Haha Please enjoy this hilarious 4 minute video of standup comedian Michael Connell as he discusses the difference between money and currency. The government printing currency and saying “This is money!” is like McDonald’s making chicken nuggets and saying “This is chicken!” The government is in the lucrative business of making fiat currency just like McDonald’s is in the business of making fiat chicken.



The factors which affect value, spell DUST (Demand Utility Scarcity Transferability).”



The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to created money and control credit, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again. But if you want to continue as the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money and to control credit.”

Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England

2014 Incandescent Light Bulb Ban

As of January 1, 2014 it is now banned for all US companies to manufacture or import 60 and 40 watt incandescent bulbs. At first it started with the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 wherein they banned 120, 100, and 80 watt bulbs. Now as of January 1, 2014 they are banning the 60 and 40 watt bulbs. Many people are stockpiling them as a result! This whole thing was brought to my attention only about a week ago! The government is trying to force everyone to use CFL, Compact Fluorescent Light, bulbs which contain the toxic mercury gas or the very expensive LED, Light Emitting Diode, bulbs which only about 7 years ago were $70-$80 per bulb! The proposition is that the more people buy the LEDs, the lower the price will go. Admittedly their price has been dropping as they are now about $12 per bulb. However to a cash strapped middle class amidst a holographic “economic recovery”, soaring joblessness, homelessness, poverty, welfare, and food stamps along with a rapidly depreciating fiat paper trash monetary system; forking over extra hard earned currency to invest in so called “greener technology” so that eventually the price will go down is a formidable task indeed.


There is nothing that the State currently provides through theft and coercion that free human being cannot provide at a lower cost and higher quality through voluntary interaction in the marketplace.”

Justin Stout



The name of the law is a classic example of Doublespeak! It is quite easy to gage the true intention of any law given the rosy terminology by interpreting what the exact opposite of the name suggests. Being a lying thief, posing as a politician, it is quite easy to pass “laws” that mandate this or that for the “good of the people” when the real life repercussions are never felt by the “public servants” themselves. This is the hubris of Statism at its peak. The will of the people and the will of the free markets can never be predicted by any law just like the importance of a particular species in nature can never be fully appreciated until its subsequent removal from the food chain, at which time the effects become painfully obvious to any sentient human being.


Government is the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: I, the government, am the people.’ Everything government says is a lie, and everything government has it has stolen.”

Friedrich Nietzche




Five Myths About the Federal Incandescent Light Bulb Ban


Government Corporatism in a Light Bulb


Any law that forbids a particular human action, human desire, or, in this case, a very useful human invention from use will inevitably distort the free market and mutate yet another aspect thriving voluntary field of business into an ugly black market. It does nothing to appreciably curb the initial human desire or manufacture of said product. On the contrary, it often heightens, through the black market, its use and abuse to the point of creating more criminals, poverty, and violence. The violence of laws, regulations, and mandates do nothing but cause more violence, crime, and poverty. Creativity is not stimulated by the barrel of a gun.


Politicians are propaganda, the people with guns are the enforcers and the media is the enthusiastic lapdog who enables the entire behavior and acts as the verbal abuser against those who deviate from nodding their heads at the vast statues of evil that we inherited.” 

Stefan Molyneux


I place this incandescent light bulb ban in the same category, albeit on a lesser scale, as the arbitrary prohibition of certain leaves, flowers, concentrated hallucinogenic powders etc, the prohibition of employers from paying their employees less than minimum wage, and gun control. These “laws” unnecessarily increase entropy in society by their meddling and intervening with the free and voluntary trade between peaceful individuals. They are the formation of daisy chains of side effects for which further intervention is needed at each subsequent interval. There is no end and tyranny is the inescapable conclusion to an ever expansive “government”, unless there is a mass awakening and the people realize and reclaim their sovereign power.


The problem with the state isn’t a bad politician here or there. It’s not just the Republicans. It’s not just the Democrats. (It’s not limited to any party in any country.) The problem is the state. It creates opportunities for plunder and abuse that are enormously attractive to anyone with the potential capacity to use it to exploit others.”

Gary Chartier, Conscience of an anarchist


Belief in “government” is like belief in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. It is just as illusory and just as irrational. Although belief in “government” differs from the others in that, since it has all the guns due to its monopoly on force, it always results in more human misery, poverty, suffering, torture, imprisonment, and murder of our fellow man. Therefore it is important that we understand its egregious effects and stop believing the fairy politicians will save us from our collective sins with their authoritarian solutions. A murderous thief who dons a $5000 suit, speaks with sophomoric rhetoric, is cheered on by the masses, and is surrounded by elaborate pomp and ceremony is still a murderous thief nevertheless. To recognize him as something other than that is a fundamental denial of our faculties of reason and logic which would render us something other than a human being. Take off the rose colored glasses and unplug yourself!


Free will is not predictable by a central planning agency.”
