His list of collegiate “BS” is correct. It’s also predictable. One does not need to read the article to know exactly what it will argue. This is 2018. We have not only seen dozens of articles and journalistic accounts of the crisis Smith describes; entire books have been published to chronicle the sins of modern university life.

The university system still has its defenders, but they are few and far between. Most folks who look at the state of American universities recognize that the system is broken. Few offer ideas on how to fix it. This conversation would improve greatly if less folks wrote long lists of their complaints about universities and more folks wrote long lists of ideas on how to improve them.

5. Haiku says

It’s about time that they dumped – permanently – ALL mathematical/statistical modelling, especially those generated by the so-called “AI” systems.

Methinks that the mathematicians – and, more especially, MSM – have grown way too big for their [combined] boots !

4.  Meditation

3. Close schools now

As schools row deepens, do you back June 1 return date for pupils?

Not in the least.  Perfect opportunity to close all schools henceforth, home school and use materials from parents’ own teaching days, nothing post-1970.  That’s for a start.

2.  How to deal with Dutch fishing trawlers?

Gunboat.

1. Yep, know what you’re thinking

Whatever are the Samurai doing at the Sphinx?

    #5. Haiku is correct. I do think the average politician is so dumb that they believe that putting a bunch of variables into a computer model a lot of times is science. They see the models as a magical black box. The scientists don’t care as long as they get funding and the ear of government, the decision makers don’t care as long as they get their payoffs and the globalists justifiably get to sneer at the weakness and stupidity of those they would control.

    1. Ah, that explains all the Japanese tourists in London. They’re here to see the Egyptian stuff at the British Museum.

    The causes of the destruction of higher education are simple and so are the solutions. The loan racket has exponentially increased student costs and at the same time degraded the product by extending the brief of utopian philosophers. When colleges are made to pay the unpaid and unpayable outstanding loans awarded to unemployable graduates they will no longer accept silly students or offer up worthless programs, and their professors.
