And LOL at the government abandoning primary education

ETA: You're now arguing that we need to do something to decrease the allure of being a lawyer?


the usofa wastes so much money on primary education for dem cretins, we should only have education for those who can afford it and spend the saved government money on bombs.

oh wait.




Also, where in the hell is this abandonment of primary education coming from? Who said that? I only said maybe its better for it to be a bachelors instead of an extra 3 years of "professional" school for $200,000. The UK does it exactly like that you know.

That only worked because fewer people went to college.



It seems to work for accounting ok. The problem right now is people graduate from college, have nothing else to do, so they think law school is a good thing to fall into. If it were a bachelors program, fewer people would "major" in law because it wouldnt be some fall back plan for them. They would just major in what interested them.

we also could get rid of MDs and just let the market weed out bad doctors, amirite?

I have been saying this for years. Finally somebody agrees with me.

we can give each person a number that is on their file after they graduate high school that lets us know where they belong in society by how well they do on mandatory aptitude tests.

When you question the role of the us government in post secondary education without bothering to differentiate it from primary education, you have a pretty weak argument.

Exactly, then the government could make rational decisions about how much tax money to invest in that person. Thus, we secure increasing social-stratification for our children and their children. We can finally get back to the elite rule of a few served by mass peasantry, as it should be.

Shit you could do half of that by lopping off CA, FL and NY schools.

CA Keep: UCLA, USC, Boalt, Stanford, UC Davis, UC Hastings, maybe UCI
CA Gone: Cal Western, Southwestern, Golden Gate, USF, Pepperdine, Loyola, Thomas Jefferson, USD, Santa Clara, McGeorge, LaVerne, Western State, Whittier

NY Keep: Columbia, NYU, Cornell, Fordham, CUNY, SUNY Buffalo
NY Gone: NYLS, Hofstra, BLS, 'Bozo, Pace, Tuoro, St Johns, Albany

FL Keep: UF, FSU, maybe Miami
Gone: Florida A&M, Barry, Nova, Stetson, FIU, St Thomas

And then just lop off shitty for-profits:

Gone: Charleston School of Law, Charlotte School of Law, Phoenix School of Law, both John Marshalls, etc

32 abject shitholes are already gone.

I honestly think plutocracies are far more efficient than government bureaucracies. There are so many retards that slip into the elite levels of government. This may be less likely if we could rank people by family history and mental aptitude. Then some type of plutocracy could choose which people could fulfill an upper-middle class of jobs. The hardest part would be making the plutocracy small enough to be truly efficient.

It is true that mental ability does have some link to genetics, so I think that it is fair to say that a family tree mapping system could be helpful to whoever the powers are on deciding where to place the best and the brightest. This could be something included in law admission. C&F could use this to see if you were more susceptible to certain anti-social behaviors because of mental diseases in your family history.

I would much rather have a a group of important families calling the shots. At least they would be swift . The governement moves too slow and facilitates the "hanger-ons" far too much. Don't get me started on sterilization programs.

They should just ban showing lawyers on tv like they did with cigarettes. Then kids stop growing up thinking it's cool to be a lawyer, enrollment goes down, schools close, and the problem is solved.

At first I thought you meant advertising, and I was wondering what twisted kids are growing up admiring mesothelioma ads.

Pancakes,

Why did we EVER get rid of royalty/nobility? I demand an immediate return to the days of wise rulers and kings appointed by none other than god himself.


Amirite? We have blood tests to determine nobility...
