But as rational people understand, nothing in life is really "free" because somewhere along the line, everything has to be paid for. Just because the government is providing it doesn't mean it's free; government must take income from productive people in order to finance the so-called freebies.
However, Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, recently explored the concept of "free" as it pertains to a college education. "FREE" college tuition for everyone sounds like a great idea, right? In reality, it would destroy the education system and turn universities into adult day-care centers feeding off the government trough of subsidized tuition, he notes in a recent podcast.
If tuition were "free," it would actually be reimbursed by the government. This would cause all universities and colleges to drop their acceptance standard in order to maximize the number of students being corralled through the system, Adams notes, and correctly so.
