College Loan Racket

How do I begin to express my outrage about student loans? I recently read "The four pillars of investing" and I (think) understand how risk and reward are related. The gov't has guaranteed these loans since they aren't dischargeable through bankruptcy. These loans have little to no risk so they should have extremely low interest rates. That isn't the case.

Anybody?
