Imagine that. The student loan industry is a nationalized, state-run industry functioning in collusion with the banksters and the educationist wing of the new clerisy. Not being dischargeable through bankruptcy, student loans are modern-day indentured servitude. No way they’re going to give up that win-win scenario for the […]
Another silver lining? By Sean Gabb The latest turn in an increasingly dull coverage of the Coronavirus panic is a proposed reopening of the schools. The Government wants them open as soon as possible for at least some of their students. The teaching unions are bleating that no […]

Trump “out-lefts” the Democrats.

By Nick Martin The New Republic I left college $25,000 in debt, a fact I’m reminded of every month when an email from Great Lakes Borrowers Services informs me that “Your Automatic Payment Will Be Made Soon.” But relative to most American graduates, I got off easy: The […]
Universities, along with the mass media, are what I call the “New Church,” in the sense of being institutions that are the most responsible for establishing and dissemination the ideology and values of the ruling class, and subsequently using their institutional power to inculcate ruling class ideology in […]

Alessia Cerantola BBC In Japan, more and more children are refusing to go to school, a phenomenon called “futoko”. As the numbers keep rising, people are asking if it’s a reflection of the school system, rather than a problem with the pupils themselves. Ten-year-old Yuta Ito waited until […]

Like Sean, I have some level of respect for Peter Tatchell. However, these troubling statements of his indicate what I have always said, i.e. that any ideological system, no matter how much it may seem to represent “good causes,” can be twisted towards state-centric and authoritarian ends. Additionally, […]
Some interesting comments from “Dick Moore” on Facebook. I wanted to write a little bit about the question of ‘social services’ provided by the State as alleged ‘alternatives’ to for-profit systems.
