Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Right wing policy is never about political or economic effectiveness.

It's always about creating hierarchies, and excluding those lower down the hierarchy from power and opportunity.

Whatever other arguments are used, that's always the bottom line.

So although asking what universities are for is a valid question, I think it's more important to underline again that all of the economic and political arguments reduce to an excuse to punch the poor in the face.

That may not seem very helpful, but I think it's useful to understand what the aim is - and also to understand that the only useful opposition is a broad-scale movement aimed at keeping the kinds of people who enjoy punching the poor in the face away from political and economic power.
