Robert Applebaum speaks of excessive student debt. Whom does he blame for this debt students, colleges, lenders, or someone else? And in this context, is he committing the fallacy of begging the question (on this fallacy, see page 358)? Why, or why not?
2. In paragraph 5, Applebaum says that education meaning higher education should be a right. In the United States, education through high school is of course free it is a right though one can argue that there really is no such thing as free education (or free medical care, etc.); somebody pays for it. Should all citizens have a right to (presumably free) posthigh school education? Does this include programs in vocational training? Explain.
3. By the end of paragraph 6, if not earlier, it is evident that Applebaum is furious with the present system. Do you think his essay would be more persuasive if he were less obviously angry? Explain.
