The only way to judge the effectiveness of a liberal arts education is to find out how well the student adheres to communist ideologies.

I’m a liberal arts guy who rejected communism BEFORE leaving college in 1980, partly thanks to Jimmy Carter’s presidency. The author is absolutely correct. One of my closest friends majored in history and now holds a very high paying internet security position for a major bank, putting him in the Top .5% salary-wise.

I am a financial advisor and am doing very well now. If you keep up the learning it pays off quite a bit. I still read pretty much EVERY day and it really helps my practice. Liberal Arts is supposed to be about thinking critically, not reciting mush.
