Quebec’s students are running wild!
No wait… Sorry…
Quebec’s arts students are running wild! While the Engineering, Mathematics, Insert Money Making Majors Here are getting f##ked over. Because schools are closing down, and people can’t get to classes.
I wonder the distribution of arts majors from the protests. It is amazing how the students think if they bitch, cry, block the traffic, smoke weed in a circle in front of some government building will get what they want. I see they are putting the skills they’ve learned as a kid while sucking their mother’s tit to good use.
Quebec have the lowest tuition of all Canada. The proposed increase over the period of 5 years will cost less than a cup of coffee a day. But nope, must protest! must demonstrate! must smoke bomb the subway! must block a bridge.
Free education is nice, but someone has to pay for it. There are three options:
1. CHARGE EVIL CORPORATIONS HIGHER TAXES! Cool, you now have your free education, now you get a job, and gets paid almost nothing, hey after all you are being noble and supporting the next generation of University students.
2. Make the Canadian income tax 75% or higher! You know what they say, the higher, the bigger the better! Hurah! Don’t we all want more income taxes? Starting tomorrow, everyone’s tax will be calculated with a logarithmic function proportion to their income. Of course, in about 5 years, Canada will be a ghost country, because all the professionals will move down to the States, where income tax is even lower than Canada.
3. The government can print money, STOP and DROP! It is Seigniorage time! Here have your free education, (make sure to take a few macroeconomics class.) Cool, you graduated from your arts degree. You inflated the Canadian dollars. You can now get a job! But your pay is so s##tty that you decide to protest more!
The mugshots of the subway smoke bombers are released, so I don’t need to say more. But here is a possible solution, eugenics is unfortunately illegal, but why don’t we send all the stupid people to the Sun? or the nearest black hole? Oh wait, like one of my friend said, (I forgot who) we need the stupid people, because who else are we going to charge 100+ dollars/h to write a piece of code?
But honestly, if you are out there because you are bored, or you are a troll, or you want to cause mischief, then props to you. But if you are really out there to protest over the tuition increase then… I don’t even… must be an arties, the only solution for you: switching to Engineering or Mathematics, oh wait… sorry, never mind!
