A Victory for James Reed By James Reed
Due to the dangerous, civilisation-undermining effects of the universities, mainly the Arts/social Sciences, I have advocated closing down the universities for many years, and creating training centres, such as engineering centres, doctors to be trained in teaching facilities attached to hospitals, and even lawyers in law societies. There is no room for the Arts and Social Sciences in my model. One way of eliminating them is to increase the cost of these degrees, a good first step on the road to ultimate elimination.
“University fees are set to double for arts degrees after the Senate rejected an emotional speech from Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie that begged MPs not to tell poor kids to “dream a little cheaper” because “you’re never going to make it”. The Morrison Government argues the changes will “incentivise students to make more job-relevant choices, that lead to more job-ready graduates. Under the changes, which passed the Senate today, the government will also provide an extra 39,000 university places by 2023 to meet the expected increase in demand because of COVID-19. From next year, the cost of some degrees including maths and science will be slashed, but other degrees including arts degrees will double. Law degrees would increase from $11,355 per year to $14,500. In other words, a law graduate would enter the jobs market with a debt of $68,000. Students with parents who can pay upfront will secure a 10 per cent discount under amendments negotiated with One Nation’s Pauline Hanson.”
But, one should not celebrate any supposed good news today, because in an instant, it will be plucked away from one. It now seems like Senator Jacqui Lambie will oppose the fees legislation, so who knows? But it will happen, as the 1960s are gone forever, and god Gough is long dead.
