I had a recent conversation with a snivelling, smooth-talking kiruv klown that sent my blood pressure to catastrophic levels. You see, our friend here the kiruv klown had absolutely no problem with college absolutely whatsoever--as long as you don't go or it's online or something. Don't ask.
He related proudly that he supports his son in Lakewood. 27-year old kid whom he's proudly supported the last five years, and plans on continuing to support for many more. Of course, his measly kiruv salary hardly allows for it, so what does he do? "Collects." What more can I say?
Extremely proud of his sons' high school which granted them a diploma after -- get this -- three years of correspondence work post-high school. A far cry from my high school which DOESN'T GIVE YOU A DIPLOMA. EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR.......
He never went to college and he has no problem with that.
His sons never went or will go to college and that's fine with him.
He has no problem with the current Lakewood system destroying the entire Orthodox world. From his perspective, it's a good thing that Torah is becoming such an important ideal. Where the money will come from is not his concern. The fact that he and his wretched system is condemning the masses to horrid lives of misery and poverty doesn't bother him in the slightest. (Hey, there's always welfare to steal and a government to cheat.) So long as no one's forgetting to talk to the walls three times a day (or more) or eating non-kosher bagels ch"v, the world will keep spinning happily. Oh, and those "few" kids who nebbach don't have what it takes to be a greasy shnorrer, well...well...well... they're just collateral damage, "korbonos" as he so eloquently puts it.
