Student: Well, I mean, I obviously believe that my ideas are persuasive enough and beneficial enough to society that people should subscribe to them [at the conclusions of their own reason [sic]] and their own sense of right and wrong but frankly some people don’t, and yet…
Q: And at the end of the day you’ll use force against those people
Student: I believe that it is the role of the government to use force
Q: So you won’t do it yourself you’ll hire someone else to do it basically?
Student: That’s what a government is.
This is Paul Krugman saying that if you don't agree with the ideal of Progressivism and the idea that government is merely a large insurance company with an army, you are wrong. Your opinion isn't merely different than his, it is wrong. This is Thomas Friedman saying that he would prefer to be ruled by "enlightened autocrats, like they have in China." This is the complete abandonment of reason and persuasion. Think like us, or die.
Because Socialism and Progressivism are the abandonment of reason and logic. They work on emotion, not reality.
And if these kids are this stupid after attending college, why on earth would taxpayers want to forgive their loans? They should be paying extra interest.
