I support federal funding, because:

1) To create universities that are truly elite, they should be founded on merit, not wealth. This is only possible once money falls out of the equation. It should be accessible to everyone who is good enough. That already cuts all the superfluous students, public or private.

Never going to happen. What would occur when the universities are filled with white and asian men, as all generic testing indicates they would be? Your guys will be voted out of office and and whip of federal funding will got to fem/colour-centric policy makers.

Quote:2) Certain subjects are inherently of value, which nevertheless do not make profit. Gender studies etc. are obviously not included here, but the classics are. Culture costs money, and society without culture is worth nothing.

Who gets to decide what constitutes the "classics"? Again, a federally funded paste of lazy, unionist, entitled, unsackable marxists, as in all federal bureaucracies made bulletproof by the guarantee of taxpayer funding no matter what.

Quote:3) Universities without culture are nothing but institutes of technology. To privatise them 100% is to destroy them. I believe in a society that can maintain such institutions as a sign of its worth. If they must be federally funded, so be it.

Unfortunately where anything is government controlled it is inevitably used for continuity and expansion of collectivism. Your premise does not play out well in the real world. It's a lovely sentiment but it fails in real life when applied by real humans.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.
