‘The College Cartel’ is no better than the Mexican drug cartel

Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder Charlie Kirk told Breitbart News that “the college cartel” is “no better than the Mexican drug cartel” because it has “spread pathogenic ideas that have infected the inner core of our society”, and is “a multi-trillion dollar enterprise designed to try to turn children against their parents”.

“I didn’t go to college and I think a lot of young people need to consider that route,” Kirk told Breitbart News at his organization’s annual student action summit in Tampa, Florida. “The college cartel has done so much harm to our country.”

“I believe that the university cartel is no better than the Mexican drug cartel in what it has done to the youth of our country: the bad ideas it has spread; the idea of ​​pathogens that infect the inner core of our society,” added the founder of TPUSA.

While Kirk pointed out that his latest book, college scam, This is to “indict the academic industry”, he also noted that there are certain institutions, “like Hillsdale College”, which “deserve to be supported and attended”.

“But ‘The College Scam’ is about arguing that people actually know — they’re just afraid to say it out loud — that most kids shouldn’t go to college,” Kirk said.

After being asked to react to those who say they know college is a scam, but still believe they need the “piece of paper” for a company to review their CV – and if he thinks companies will eventually change their minds about the value of a college degree – Kirk said some employers already have:

We talk about it in the book, which is employers saying they’re not happy with what colleges are producing. The “piece of paper” isn’t even worth what it was. In fact, employers say they are willing to look beyond the sheet of paper to: “What did you actually do, what internships did you have, what did you produce, how do you think , how do you introduce yourself?”

“I believe college makes you less likely to be able to think independently, be confident, and be able to express yourself,” Kirk continued. “I believe the university actually erodes the best our country has to offer.”

The founder of TPUSA added that the university is “bankrupting our country” and “brainwashing our young people”.

“It’s a multi-trillion dollar business that’s designed to try to turn kids against their parents,” he said.
