(From an online political quiz) Should college education be provided free of charge?

Yeah, just decrease military spending and we'll have plenty of money left over to fund public colleges

No, but I do believe that tuition prices are exorbitantly high. I don't think that you should have to use both arms and legs as collateral simply to go to college.

If they were tested and met the requirements. Like Europe.

Sure, as soon as you find volunteers to staff it and the donated materials for the students.

Ideally we'd have a moneyless society so universities would be run by whoever wants to work there, and the services they offer would be free. But in our current market economy, I'd like to se universities lower their overhead costs, decrease cost per student, and be financed by the community in which they reside.

Tell me why somebody would want to go to a university if there is no money

Just like they did back in the middle ages and Renaissance. People want to learn, so let them learn.

Yeah, the Middle Ages sounds like a terrific time to model our modern day political system after.

The only thing I believe should be the same with the Middle Ages is that people go there to learn and that it's not a necessity to get by.
