Are liberal arts degrees worth it?

Good question. Here's the justification - "The real value of a liberal arts education is that it teaches you ... how to analyze a situation and make a choice." Here's the refutation - a University that has hobbled intellectual diversity with political correctness and is replacing education about our civilization with indoctrination about what's wrong with it, has devalued their product. Such a mis-education is neither economically marketable, as would an engineering or business degree be, but neither is it civilizationall useful.
