We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The mistake that people often make about those attending college is to regard them as students. They are customers. That’s the way the college sees them - consumers of dorm space, dining hall passes, and book store merchandise. Colleges want to keep the customers happy and also want to keep them rolling in year after year. Putting them in their place in a public way is not good for business. Taking back control is only done when the customers get too rowdy and threaten the income stream, such as was the case with Evergreen State College when the rowdy got too rowdy and enrollment suffered.
