This Sunday, May 1, is ‘National College Decision Day’. Thousands of high school seniors across America will make their final decision on where they will spend the next four years of their lives along with the irreversible life path that this decision entails.
Between the two of us, we have three MAs, a JD, a Ph.L and a Ph.D. Despite these credentials, we have unfortunately seen the academy recently deprived of its last remaining virtue, in a centuries-long decentralization transforming into something irrevocably destructive, and something we can no longer support.
Accordingly, our upcoming book, “Don’t Go to College: A Case for Revolution,” encourages young Americans to be brave counterrevolutionaries and join a growing movement of not going to university.
UTAH’S WESTMINSTER COLLEGE OFFERS ‘PORNO’ CLASS, WHERE STUDENTS WANT TO ‘WATCH PORNOGRAPHIC MOVIES TOGETHER’
Here are our main reasons for:
1. College is bad for your mind.
In the past, going to college meant receiving something valuable. But in most cases, you are no longer. This is because almost every American college has now been overrun by the hegemonic ideology of intersectionality (or ‘vigilance’), a hyper-potent new strain of Marxism that is militantly intolerant of Christianity, Western civilization, America, academically freedom and truth.
Critical Race Theory, LGBTQ + and ‘diversity, equality and inclusion’ are all expressions of this destructive ideology with weapons-based complaints that are now endemic on most university campuses. That is why we need a counter-revolution in higher education.
2. College is bad for your wallet.
According to the report “Average Cost of College & Tuition” from Educationdata.org, ‘the average annual cost of a four-year college is $ 35,331’. Taking into account borrowing rates and opportunity costs, ‘the ultimate cost of a bachelor’s degree can exceed $ 400,000’. Meanwhile, the student loan debt is $ 1,943,254,356,421, with U.S. families borrowing more than $ 106 billion for college in 2019.

As Mike Rowe, host of “Dirty Jobs,” notes: “Expenditure on college has grown faster than the cost of energy, the cost of real estate, and the cost of health care. All of it. Somehow we got it into our heads, that it is invaluable. “
Guess what? It is not.
3. Folk high school has become adult day care
Imagine coughing up six digits in daycare costs for your young adult offspring. That’s all that college education is now. But instead of wisdom or virtue, young people in adult day care are now learning laziness, rudeness, Marxist indignation, and generally anti-religious misery.
CANADIAN COLLEGE’S RESPONSIBILITY POSITION ONLY OPEN TO ‘WOMEN, TRANSCHANGE, NON-BINARY OR TWO-SPIRIT’ PEOPLE
And do not fail to calculate that today’s college imprints a unique kind of stupidity, which may well be the side effect of campus-contracted syphilitic brain damage, since a staggering one in four college students has a venereal disease from the half-decade-old bacchanal that now has become the legendary “university undergraduate experience.”

Further understand that this prison for adult day care, like Hotel California, binds its students with a lifelong bromide of spiritually and morally unpleasant habits. Because “you can check out anytime you want, but you can never leave,” most graduates will later find their soul-sucking collegiate habits almost impossible to shake.
Worst of all, instead of starting a happy, productive life at the age of 18 or 19 (as humans have done for pretty much all of history), the mentally retarded and sexually incontinent modern student’s natural attraction and ability to get married and having a family right after high school will be ruled out logistically and ideologically by his junk time in college.
4. STEM is now “Awakened”
What about STEM? These fields should definitely be immune to wokeism. Think again.
Recently, university professors have declared that mathematics is “a haven for whiteness,” and “what has counted as mathematics is in itself dominated by whiteness and racism.”
In biomedical science, most professors now dare not even challenge the claim that ‘men can get pregnant.’ And within Big Tech, as evidenced by the firing of James Damore at Google for his questioning of Google’s ‘ideological echo chamber’, the story is much the same. STEM fields are therefore far from immune to harmful politicization.
5. Radicalization on campus affects larger communities
Just because the radical left stormed and then recreated all the cultural institutions of Western civilization does not mean that they were all recreated equally. Higher education is their nerve center. Boycotting a university education initiates active opposition to the hegemony of the radically infiltrated institutions.

Therefore, young Americans should think twice before handing over the keys to their minds, their country, and their future to an overly expensive, outdated, and now clearly corrupt institution.
We strongly urge Zoomers to completely avoid the college-industrial complex: Instead, stay local, focus on building the cardinal virtues, learn a trade, and get married young.
In short, after high school, young people need to move on to live their best lives, free from animal wake indoctrination.
