    Freikorps, in the broader sense of the term, is a voluntary paramilitary unit

    Now that it has been widely acknowledged that these student "congregations" are established on a confused bandwagon fueled by buzz words and a Peter Pan mentality, and that the presence of the media refrains the police from taking the appropriate course of action, do you believe that it is time for an unofficial paramilitary group to take action? Obviously, if such a group existed, before action a warning would go forth to urge women and kids and malnourished "arts for the sake of art" graduates to stay at home.

    Thoughts?

    Yes because 95% of innocent peaceful students deserve to be attacked due to the actions of a minority.

    Why is this 14th century idea still being brought up constantly.

    They are guilty of no crime.


    Protesting is a right granted by the european union.

    No person wants a state that allows no protesting.

    Why don't we create this Freikorps and give them even more power than that. Give them some IT guys so that they can find and root out stupid internet trolls. How about that?

    wow I didn't think anyone a literary ability still believed in this cause.

    A tripling of tuition fees. Yes. Because good things cost money, and that is the actual price of a decent degree. I just wonder why the taxpayer hasn't thus far complained that his money has been used to fund ridiculous courses. We are in debt, circa 6 billion.

    EMA is being replaced by Learning Support Funds, which is basically EMA under a new name and a new, more stringent regime.

    Where lies this discrimination against international students?

    Give them power, I don't think so. The proposition relies on taking and exerting pre-existing power and good sense.

    1. Europe charges half of what wales still charges for its degrees. At least.

    2. The debt? Then cut the military spending and stop following America around the world like a lapdog. And this change will still cost the government excess amounts of money through loans.

    3. The home office issued a statement to the general public for how to reduce the amount of international students coming here. Which would lead to even less university funding.

    4. The new learning support fund only relates to certain needs directly related to essential education. No travel costs are being paid for under 18s. So theres no incentive to get them to study.

    Cut military spending or mostly useless and reprehensible education. Ask whosoever pays, yes?

    I think the taxpayer would value Defense over a History and Media graduate.

    The people whose only incentive to study is EMA shouldn't be going to uni. Glorified benefit thieves.
