What does /his/ think so far? It's actually not as terrible as I was expecting.
Your point being?
>Society has to pay money to maintain universities.
So what, society also pays money to maintain McDonald's.
Are you saying a McDonald's job is more valuable than the 0.0001% of your tax money that is granted to universities?
>not getting paid to masturbate
The problem is that the average STEMtard doesn't understand that philosophy, history, and all the other humanities subjects are hard to quantify the value of, until they are lost to us forever.
If nobody knew what Euclid, Plato, Archimedes said and wrote, which could happen in a future scenario, nobody would even know why Newtonian physics works as it does.
But of course, this doesn't vex the average sperglord doing his Bachelor's degree in Physics at all.
Did it ever occur to you that money might not be the primary concern for some people?
In any case, when referring to the stereotype of a broke humanities major, philosophy is not the best example. It's one of the best among the humanities and ahead of several sciences, like Biology.
You learn to think better. You have no idea how many people are just terrible at thinking or how bad you are yourself before you've taken an course in formal logic and argumentative reasoning.
Fun facts; my former philosophy teacher said he preferred fresh students who haven't taken any coursers before his since people in the humanities and social sciences use the word "knowledge" weirdly while STEM students can't get into their head that 1 litre of water weighting 1 kg isn't a logical necessity.
