Food for Thought

I did not think the other review was very nice. This is interesting that education tends to lead people to liberal views. As a college student, I think that it is due to the fact that general education curricula requires that students learn about their social surroundings which in turn makes them more aware of the general inequalities that some people face on a regular basis.

Billions in tax money misspent on a folly?
