College Is No Longer A Measure of Success

For several generations now, college has been considered absolutely essential to success in America. That is no longer true, as many people have pointed out in recent years. 

As political correctness and woke ideologies have taken control of college campuses, academic standards have drastically inclined. A college degree is no longer as impressive today as it was 25 or 30 years ago. Something many employers have figured out. Even degrees from so-called Elite schools such as Harvard are no longer the guarantor of success they once were. Worse, this sharp decline in the value of a college education has coincided with a staggering increase in the cost of getting that declining education. 

College is no longer a good idea for many people. Many folks will be more successful without college. It is a shocking statement, but true, in my opinion. 

"If you want to get ahead in life, you have to go to college" is old advice that is no longer valid. It is simply is not worth going into tens of thousands of dollars of debt to get a degree in gender studies or 18th century French poetry. Education is a good thing. Massive debt is not. And neither is political indoctrination.  Colleges and universities are cesspools of wokeness, anti-capitalism, and anti-Americanism. They intentionally seek to destroy traditional values and religious beliefs.

Spending tens of thousands of dollars on college isn't the only way to get an education. In fact, in most cases a better education can be achieved with much less expense. 

Consider vocational training at a trade school or local community college (much more affordable and useful, with less indoctrination) while working a real job. 

If you do have your heart set on a career requiring a college degree, make sure it is a good-paying career (accountant, doctor, lawyer, veterinarian, etc.) and get your degree as cheaply as possible without going into debt. This probably means going to a local community college to get the general curriculum courses, then transferring to a relatively affordable state university to finish your major. It may even mean taking some time of from your studies to work and save money to pay for your studies.

Just something to think about.
