It's knowledge you need to be successful in life not "propaganda" masquerading as education, teaching you NOT to think for yourself.
Look at Bill Gates, dropped out of university.
Or Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs enrolled in Reed College in Portland, Oregon in 1972 but dropped out after only one semester, due to lack of funds.
Contrast, those who designed the financial products which necessitated the system being guaranteed by socialist type government bailouts in 2008 actually attended university. Seems the masters of the universe, couldn't access risk accurately. One in a life time event, was there mantra. Once is all that was needed.
They certainly "acquired" the tools to advance in life! And to think anyone off the street, a halfwit could have done the same without the need to squander time and money going to university!
To be successful you need an enquiring mind, curiosity, an aptitude to think outside the box for answers to solve problems.
All education at university seems to do is turn out mindless drones. Who in order to pass say what they are taught.
