Here’s The Atlantic talking about how it would actually be less expensive than all the grants, loans, and aid programs the government already provides to students
And just for fun, here’s the Huffington Post (via AP) talking about Oregon’s pilot “Pay It Forward” tuition free program that’s similar to the English university payment model.
But of course, this all sniffs of socialism, and we can’t have that. It’s not like this would be in the public interest… Not when JP Morgan Chase, Blackrock, and Bank of America have huge profits to make.

The Outsiders: How Can Millennials Change Washington If They Hate it?

Forget what you’ve read about the “Me, Me, Me Generation.” Here are four things you probably don’t know about the 95 million Americans born between 1982 and 2003:
Millennials, in general, are fiercely committed to community service.
They don’t see politics or government as a way to improve their communities, their country, or the world.
So the best and brightest are rejecting public service as a career path. Just as Baby Boomers are retiring from government and politics, Washington faces a rising-generation “brain drain.”
The only way Milliennials might engage Washington is if they first radically change it.

Sabine Pearlman. From the Ammo series, 2012. 

This series of ammunition cross-sections was photographed inside a WWII bunker in Switzerland in October of 2012. The entire series consists of 900 specimen. I was originally intrigued by the ambiguous nature of the subject matter. The cross-sections reveal a hidden complexity and beauty of form, which stands in vast contrast to the destructive purpose of the object. It’s a representation of the evil and the beautiful, a reflection of the human condition.”

Sabine Pearlman is an Austrian photographer, she currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
