The college scandal crackdowns are scapegoating. Of all the corruption in this world taking place Panama Papers, Offshoring, Child Slave Labor, election tampering, and on...let's go after some people who were probably manipulated into helping their children succeed in life? (Kind of the way a lot of average folks were manipulated into reverse mortgages by banks).
While the world asks is college even worth it anymore? Does it matter?...We know that the children in these families don't really need college to succeed and they are going to pay for the entire education themselves. Let's face it their futures will ride easily on what wealth their celebrity parents built with their own boot straps. I find it in fact great that they still want to expand their minds and learn despite they will be set anyway. We also know that college admissions are totally subjective anyway. Who even knows how a private university decides to accept students and everybody already knows those who can pay will play. Otherwise we would have universal college where it is a truly equal playing field.
So instead of reforming our defunct college system or developing universal college and lowering student loan interest rates - the government decides to make an example of some well intentioned parents (after so many years of no enforcement it was the equivalent of j walking in that world) and this will accomplish what? Will it make college debt go down? Will it lessen the burden of finding work in a society where automation is replacing workers? Will it stop slave labor? Will it end Corporate Corruption? How much money is being spent to prosecute? I don't usually defend the rich but this is more shiny keys. There are a lot of bad rotten people in this world and Lori Loughlin isn't one of them to deserve the hell she is getting. This is a mistake and the response is just too much. Let them volunteer to help the poor and send them on their way. If we members of Occupy fail to be reasonable and defend people who are chewed up and spit out by our screwed up unreasonable system (even when they happen to be rich) then we are hypocrites and no better than Wall Street. And if we are somehow fooled into believing that this action of prosecution somehow shows or represents the fairness in our system - then we are true idiotic fools.
