Is there utopia at the end of free college education?

 

There has been enthusiastic support for what is believed to be free college education in the United States. 

With every discussion of controversy, there is a need to analyze the Constitutional side of this topic.

 

Is the Government duty bound to provide free college education?  I think most of us can read the Constitutional articles and determine, that there is no obligation to provide such a service.

What about the academic requisites?  Germany offers free college to qualified applicants which means language and academic requirements must be met.  

While some US States offer a version of this, in some instances funding is provided by the state lottery system.  It would seem that it is one of those rights left to the states to decide.

While a state may elect through their legislative bodies to address “free college”, we can agree that it is not an entitlement.

I am uneasy about taxing the so called rich out of some sense that rich people are villains that deserve to strip of their success.  It sounds dramatic, yet there is a loud voice heard through various political movements insisting that free college is in our future among other equalities that may be invented.

 

If the state is offering the free program, then should the state be required to set the standards and major fields of study?

Perhaps mandatory study in theoretical mathematics would help make America great again. 

If we were to focus on degree paths that were only STEM related, would we see the same voices of equity shouting that the government is now dictating what they should learn? 

 

I will admit that the possibility of a utopic society does exist, and it must be built upon truth and desire of knowledge that benefits humanity.  Our present human condition makes us easy prey to the temptations that fear, greed, hate, ignorance and all the other perceived and real challenges.

If we were to ask an artificial intelligent computer about how we can achieve this utopia, I would expect education to be part of the response, but I would also expect the size of federal government would also be recognized for the burdens imposed upon the citizens to fund it.   In a utopic society, the size of our US Government would be incompatible and obsolete. 

If knowledge and truth were to become the free standard, then our AI friends may help us get there.

Imagine an AI that was intended to analyze the best steps to achieving a utopic USA or world?

Data science has been identified as one of the most rapidly evolving fields. 

We should expect that as the development of artificial intelligent systems expands, so will the computing power required to keep them expanding .

This means the entire markets that are related to say, quantum computing and all the precious materials that are unique to the construction of the infrastructure and hardware requirements of AI.

 

If we want to compete with the rest of the world, we need to invest like it.  Free school makes perfect sense if we want to develop the technology base required of our dream utopia.

While it relevant to criticize the obvious: “What if people don’t want utopia? “    This does represent a conflict, and I would only ask “Why wouldn’t you want utopia?”

 

Imagine if we had no need for an industrial war complex.  I would suggest that the same talent and innovation that goes into weaponizing technology and every point of discovery would drive us in a much better direction
