Steel is not capable of holding the tolerances achieved at that distance through that material. That's the point. We are unclear as to how it was accomplished because mechanical conventional tooling isn't capable of recreating it.

Fair enough, I can respect those ideas, I'm still not totally convinced that socialised education would work for America, but I see your point.

I don't think it should be implemented for 4 years. Right now, the Government offers ample scholarships and loan opportunities there that are sufficient.

I would however argue that given the vastly reduced cost, socializing the 2 year colleges would be a good idea. Most Community Colleges already receive funding from state governments like SUNY in New York State, and offer huge discounts to instate residents.

It may not be a 4 year degree, but you can continue on to a 4 year from a 2 year, and most community colleges offer more technical programs than 4 year colleges, which help build up a skilled workforce.

Sure, it's overall a better deal, but consider this:

You make the point that even over a lifetime you won't even pay what it would cost for a year at a mediocre college right now.

How does that work? How do you send anyone who wants to go to college, to college, when overall the population is paying a fraction of what it used to? How do you pay all of the professors and provide the materials to teach the classes with a 1/4 of the money?

There are many ways it could happen. Right now, the price of many colleges is absurdly inflated, and in no way reflects the actual operating costs.
-If most of the money being paid comes from a single source, that source can negotiate prices. Governments with socialized medical systems do this. They negotiate prices for medicines etc. and get them at substantially reduced rates.
-Not everyone has children, so some of the slack would be picked up by them. While this may seem unfair, a childless person will be better off living in a better educated society, so it is an investment in their surroundings.
-If the government gathers the money for it into a single fund, and gathers more than they need initially, they can generate interest on the fund. Right now, programs like Social Security and Medicare generate funding from methods like this.

There are many ways governments can pay for things.
