Given my line of work, I personally benefit from government subsidies to higher education.  But I nevertheless believe that such subsidies are both immoral and economically harmful.  Without condition or qualification, I oppose such subsidies and hope that they will eventually – and the sooner, the better – be completely and forever abolished.  (I’m for a total and unconditional separation of school and state.)

Here’s the great Milton Friedman.  (Notice in this video a very young David Brooks.)
