Reviews the NY Times article "Placing the Blame as Students Are Mired in Debt," the Washington Examiner article, "Higher Education's Bubble is About to Burst," and the book by Anya Kamenetz, DIY U. Cites statistics on drop-out rates, the cost/benefit ratio, and a jaundiced look at college from "The Economics of Education and the Education of an Economist." Reads the poems "When the Shoe Fits" by Chuang Tsu and "Straight Talk from Fox" by Mary Oliver. Reconsiders some conclusions from a survey showing Republicans are happier than Democrats.

Third Paradigm: 3P-060 The Bipolar Bipartisan: Supporting Need and Greed

This episode looks at bipartisanship as a compromise between two confusions. We examine critical thinking and how it’s been bred out, generation by generation, defeating us through our own unexamined contradictions. We also look at that strange hybrid of capitalism and socialism, the consumer democracy. And we explore how Republicans and Democrats differ on a survey of happiness. Reads the poems “Begin” by Rumi, “Half-Life” by Stephen Levine, “Love Letters” by Ikkyu, and “Act Serious” by Tukaram. Discusses Obama’s first-strike nuclear option towards Iran as a “spare the nuclear rod and spoil the colony” policy, and quotes IPS and Diane Rehm on the topic. Puzzles over the assassination order of the US-born Muslim cleric in Yemen. Compares the capitalist creed cited by pilot Joseph Stack to the socialist creed, which is then critiqued by Ivan Illich. Ends with Bruce Gagnon on where both parties agree. Read the show transcript while listening, and view our images, videos, and links on the Third Paradigm website: http://thirdparadigm.org/3p_060.php
