But all in all I feel morally that as a society we should not make life saving choices based on money, such as whether or not we can pay for it. Any “good” step in that direction I approve.
Lately I’m been looking more about the “well being” of our society as a whole, because me, being apart of it, will be affected by it everyday. Yeah I don’t like the idea of my future tax money going to pay for some kids text books and schooling while their parents buy beer and cable tv. But in the end I might hire him for my business or he will go on and start a one on his own. Therefore, as a society I want to provide everyone an equal chance to pursue an education as quick and cheaply as possible to push our country forward.
The more money college grads owe, the less money they can reinvest back into the society and it slows it down too. Therefore, following this logic in a perfect world we would like them to graduate owing nothing so they can start spending money, investing it, and paying taxes as soon as possible. Sadly most of the western world is already living in this perfect world.
Again there is so much involved that this might be a very good argument in my mind but in real life there are far to many variables to consider..
Sorry for the length.. but I’ve been thinking and reading a lot about all this. I’m still trying to organize and rationalize all this information. Seems like every article or interview I hear on the radio there are two more that contradict it. Trying to logically deduce every argument is starting to be a chore but I feel these are the important issues that the future of our country is based and I’d be a fool not to understand why I believe what I believe.
Ok I’m going to bed.
