Rick Santorum legitimately believes that college is ruining this country. That kids receiving a higher education is actually a bad thing. Why? Because of secularization.
Progress be damned!
Come on guys. Santorum has already made it clear that he has little respect for women and gays. Now he’s saying that pursuing a college degree is tantamount to being “indoctrinated”?? THIS IS TRANSPARENTLY MADNESS.
This man LITERALLY wants to take the country back decades. Maybe even more than that. I just simply do not understand the argument against progress. I don’t. Religion and politics aside, I can’t grasp why someone doesn’t want a society to advance. I suppose that the issue lies in how one defines “advance”, but I also feel like there are certain definable qualities that you can quantitatively assign as progression.
For instance: giving women equal standing and the ability to govern their own bodies. Another example: attending college, learning more about the world around you, and using that knowledge to improve yourself, your community, and society.
But no. Religious and conservative ideals should take precedence over all that. And more importantly, an entire nation should adhere to those principles. That way we can guarantee our irrelevance as soon as possible.
