    Because there is no better alternative to democracy. Would you be a part of that stupid majority or let tyranny/stupidity of a few dictate your life?

    Education is the equaliser. But the rich do NOT want an educate, well informed and financially literate people, so they bribe or "lobby" politicians to ensure the quality of the education is only so good. We live in a capitalist nation, money is the life blood of society, it runs everything and is used daily by almost everyone ... yet we're never given any lessons in school on how to mange debt, budget, invest, bonds & stocks and other useful things related to capitalism that would ensure...

    Who cares if the rich don't want people educated. It's up to people to become educated. The expansion of the Internet has helped with this. It's truly silly to think that someone can stop someone from getting an education today. Education isn't only getting a degree. Tons of successful people never went to college.

    Sigh...If money only grew on trees....Wait! We do have the technology. Monsanto should genetically engineer a tree that makes money and sell it. Then we all pay Monsanto back with the money from the tree, a genius solution.
