Amoeba’s Lorica: Credential Cred

According to the fine, upstanding, and probably, these days, 100% facepalmed (remember, they’re part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, and their bosses are Wilbur Ross and Donald Trump) people at the United States Census Bureau, the percentage of US citizens who have received high school diplomas, and and have received college/university degrees, has gone steadily up since 1940 CE.

Good news, yeah? Surely this spectacular increase in credentials has granted the People of these Untied States of America far greater knowledge of themselves and their world than ever before. Far greater information, and the skills to manage that information. The potential for far greater wisdom

What was that?

Far greater indebtedness? C’mon. Cost of doing business. You didn’t expect to receive all these boons for free, did you? Pay up and …

OK, YFNA will ask what good all this education has done for us. Let’s examine how people have applied their new education credentials to the task of picking a quality President of the United States, shall we?




Ya wanna try telling YFNA again why no one should be exempt from a college education?
