To people who think that way subsidized birth control is very important. So is tolerance, international travel, centralized schooling, learning to appreciate nature, disruptive immigration, extended adolescence, higher education, state subsidies, free love, multilingual training, world citizenship, social safety nets and a thousand other things. None of which involve creating jobs.
How is "international travel" a product on the Left? I have found by traveling internationally I have become more tolerant of other cultures which if it does one thing reduces the amount of misunderstanding.

What the hell is wrong with higher education? Again, it expands your mind and thinking.

Some of the things he says makes sense. Some of it makes him sound like a far right isolationist.

I particularly like the last sentence that it "does nothing to create jobs". Isn't that what he just railed that Communists did?

Let me give you a secret, our government creating "jobs" is just as bad as the Communists (or the Nazi's) or the Chinese Communist regimes creating jobs.

Yes, we can create an environment that jobs are created but to create them is Socialism/Communism.

I've become far LESS tolerant of some other cultures (while travelling internationally) due to greater understanding. Perhaps some of these "happy global village" leftists should do more travelling?

Those political science graduates have to write about something, I guess.
