    Capitalism Hits Home: Sugar Arrangements: Intimate Personal Connection For Sale [Clip]

    The sugar industry or sugar arrangements have mushroomed in the United States in tandem with the mushrooming costs of higher education, and the shift of the tax burden on to the mass of people. Without a college degree, young people face a wall in employment and future opportunities. For almost all Americans, a college degree though comes with a very heavy debt. College debt now outstrips credit card debt in the United State. College students own a trillion dollars in debt, double what they did ten years ago. The average US student carries over $37,000 in student loan debt and takes 20 years to pay off that debt. Enter the…

    Thomas Sowell on the Myths of Economic Inequality

    – It happens to me all the time and it happened just this week.

    Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35

    Hi, I’m Craig, and this is Crash Course Government and Politics. And today, we’re gonna get personal. Not personal in the sense that I’m gonna tell you I’m a bed wetter cause I’m not…gonna tell you that. We’re gonna talk about people’s personal political views and where they come from. This is what political scientists sometimes call Political Socialization. But before we get into the forces that help create our political outlooks, we should probably define what political ideologies look like in America. [Theme Music] In America, there are a number of ways people characterize themselves politically. Typically, they identify with a political party, although as we’ll see when we…

    Students have a better chance in the slums of Mumbai than Baltimore

    Ingraham: Just yesterday, New York City officials approved a new, get this, “culturally responsive” education policy that requires schools to stop the practices that “lead to predictable outcomes of success or failure for historically marginalized students,” despite the fact that most NYC students aren’t proficient in reading or math. Here to make sense of all this is Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative author and filmmaker. Dinesh, when you dig down into what “culturally responsive” education means, you find out that it’s the same liberal educrat gobbledy gook that’s been confusing students and keeping them stuck for decades now. D’Souza: Yeah, it’s not really education at all. It’s the politics of victimology.…

    America’s Biggest Issues: Education

    . American colleges and universities are failing in one of their most basic missions: to equip students with the tools they need for a career. Many students graduate ill-prepared to earn a living and pay off the debt they’ve accumulated getting their degrees. Forty percent of those who start college don’t finish within six years. Additionally, students are often subject to indoctrination into socialist ideology. They face hostility toward opinions that don’t conform to the predominantly leftist thinking on campus. They’re also immersed in identity politics that pit students of different backgrounds against one another. Despite these problems, colleges continue to raise tuition because federal loan money is handed out…
