Because it’s a cesspool of corruption and exploitation and there’s no logical reason that the university system should be operating multi-billion dollar entertainment corporations under the guise of educating students.

Could not have said it better myself! Unfortunately, government responds to perceived problems during the "political" season solely for the purpose of garnering publicity, political contributions, self-enrichment, and votes.

Not one thing they pursue is ever resolved. In fact, the problem is usually made worse after they fix it! Obama care and the emperors new clothes immediately come to mind.

There will always be people willing to exploit us! The truth is that "we" are the problem.

“ Traces of nobility, gentleness and courage persist in all people, do what we will to stamp out the trend. So, too, do those characteristics which are ugly. It is just unfortunate that in the clumsy hands of a cartoonist all traits become ridiculous, leading to a certain amount of self-conscious expostulation and the desire to join battle. There is no need to sally forth, for it remains true that those things which make us human are, curiously enough, always close at hand. Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blasts on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us. Forward! ”

— Walt Kelly, June 1953

I'm reminded of two classics scenes from two separate movies.

A man with such Effed up priorities doesn't deserve such a fine automobile!

And the forever classic scene

Point of parlimentary Procedure!

Both encapsulate and illustrate the problems with modern America culture and contemporary political discourse since at least the Clinton era. In truth we've been this bad my entire life!
