Using my superior throbbing brain as a STEM graduate, I can't really agree that people who study humanities are useless intangibles.
We do need historians, novelists, poets and musicians. Imagine if only accountants and mathematicians were available to act in cinema. ;]
I understand people like to believe everybody who disagrees with them is stupid, but who really benefits from these cartoon stereotypes, feeling all of this hatred and disdain towards what are -often- imaginary people?
The job market shows it, I hate to be the baron of bad news but the employment aspects are not as great unless you're in the STEM fields.
True, but studies show a lot of people can get these degrees without humanities and all these social sciences. I'm not saying people shouldn't pursue what they like, but know a lot of classes are actually rather detrimental these days to your actual learning. The problem is college is now following agendas rather than trying to set up people for the future.
The picture is depicting a college professor giving you "approved" material, that fits their own worldview and lacks critical thinking of the actual world. I've had professors like this before, yes they do exist and it's sad how some people have failed students who don't agree with their limited outlook on life. One reason I am very glad to be out of my core classes...
