Oh! The Huge Vanity!

A double dose of me talking bolognese. The video above is me giving a lecture in Zagreb, about a year and a half ago. It is regarding monuments and olympic architecture, with a special focus on (you've guessed it) the ArseOrbit. Below is a little interview they conducted with me the next day.

I generally agree with most of what you say. But I recently read an article in Germany (where in most states universities are still for free) that this model fits the middle classes best. Although progressive taxing charges the rich the most, it said that lower income groups or as you'd say the in the UK the 'working class' do not send enough of their children to universities to compensate for the relative 'tax burden'. Of course, I'd still say it's the best model and shows if anything, that the secondary school system based around the Gymnasium is too exclusive as it seemingly deters many able students to study. Admittedly, I can't quite figure it out though, as the Bafög system (equivalent of student loans) does not only have no interest but only requires you upon successful completion to pay back around 3/4 of what they gave you.
