I really feel that people who support the abolition
of the student fee allocation system should, at the
very least, rethink their position within the so-called
academic community. Somewhere these people are
missing a big point: the influx of a wide variety of
ideas and data available to the student body is the
least we should expect as part of the offerings of a
half-way decent university.
Having talked to a number of folks who are
adamantly against the present fee situation, I -find
they tend to consider themselves conservatives, are
more accurately described as reactionaries and sound
like book burners. The major hassles they usually
allude to are not really that fees are spent, but who
and what they are spent on.
I feel that the fees which bring speakers and ideas
to campus in any sort of public forum are a valid way
to spend student money-no matter what the ideas.
Especially when one considers the lack of intellectual
diversity in our quaint little prairie outpost-the
unique village of Lincoln. ("Unique" coming from
two Latin root words: "unus" meaning one and
"equus" meaning horse).
The fees are, admittedly, a form of taxation. And
getting used to this probably is part of getting ready
for life in the real world for some folks. Consider, for
a minute, if taxation for schools, public health
programs, libraries, etc. was simply optional for each
taxpayer, Especially in times of tight money. Scary,
isn't it? ,
I'm a working student and, much to my dismay,
this makes attending a lot of things impossible. But I
can't begrudge the portion of my fees which supports
them. On the contrary, I would vote for an increase if
it would assure a steady flow of reasonably
well-attended speakers and imported personalities.
Even intellectual lightweights like Josh (with his
repugnant "if I can't find evidence to disprove" a
proposition, then it must be real and true"
psuedo-logic) would be valid. I wouldn't step across
the street to be insulted by the man but this is my
Personally, I am hard-pressed to understand whv
someone would come to any public university for an
education and then form or" participate in a group
which dedicates itself to working to limit the data,
ideas and experiences of the intellectual community
as a whole.
Possibly they should consider transferring to a
small, religious college where the men of God screen
out "bad think". Or perhaps they could redirect their
negativism toward such things as spending taxpayers'
money to pamper the regents, flying them first class
to sporting events, etc.
