Davidson College students furious after they're tricked into rejecting socialist ideal - The College Fix:
Some students said the fake petition made them struggle with feelings that they do not belong at Davidson, while others aggressively attacked the video, calling it “oppressive,” “illegally filmed,” and “inflammatory bullsh*t,” according to a video of the April 27 teach-in on Facebook.
I'm thinking of a word .. what is it?
Oh, I've got it; the word is ... HYPOCRISY!
Alternate Title: "The Hypocrisy of the Meritocracy"
The interesting thing is, these students who reject the thesis are the same Social Justice Warriors who think that "Wealth Distribution" is a social "Good".
(But in truth, they just may be part of the meritocracy)
So .. Daddy makes enough money that you can afford to matriculate at Davidson College ...
But it isn't YOUR money, and there's a lot of it. So. if Daddy's money is 'shared', it doesn't hurt you.
However, when the "benefits" are finite, and it's a Zero-Sum game ... you're against it?
Let's look at the fee schedule for Davidson College:
FEES FOR 2017-18 ACADEMIC YEAR
- Required student charges (tuition, student activity fee) $49,949; student activity fee covers student publications, student government, and social and cultural activities
- Standard Double Room (other rooms available) $7,102
- Meals, 21 per week (other plans available) $6,852, includes N.C. Board Tax
- Total: $63,903
Gee, for almost 139% of average annual salary which the average America workers makes (<$44K), you could go to college at Davidson ... and be outraged that some dork wants to take a couple points off your GPA and give them to a lower-ranking student?
That's just so not fair!
