Socialist writer Lindsay Abrams again trumpets central planning and government supremacy in a recent column.

“A Record of Total Failure”: Government Funding of Universities Has Produced a LOWER Percentage of Poor People in College

Why are taxpayers forced to OWN universities? Upon what logic do governments claim that owning colleges and universities is necessary? Especially when there are thousands of private-sector colleges and universities? The only plausible answer is that government-owned or supported colleges meet the needs of the poor in ways that private-sector colleges do not. But Professor …
