I'm talking about people like Tom Bertonneau, who isn't afraid to dispense with hoity-toity concepts like reason and logic when he's getting down to doing a little thinking:
Modern people generally, liberals, logical positivists, moral relativists, and the entire tribe of sociologists, vehemently deny that correlation is causation. Personally, correlations impress me – as do analogies, to which the same people listed above also deny significance.Now that's what I call real thinking.
I come now to my point: The rising costs of a UC education since 1972 are directly in correlation to the extent of affirmative action – and, later on, of “diversity” and the imperatives of “multiculturalism.” By casual estimate, the cost of a four-year degree in the UC system has increased by five-hundred per cent. Because I am not a modern person, mentally speaking, a liberal, a logical positivist, a moral relativist, or a sociologist, my conclusion is the effect of affirmative action, “diversity,” and the agenda of “multiculturalism” has been to increase the cost of state-subsidized higher education five-hundred per cent since 1972.
