Education is a Hazard

Education is a hazard.

On the one hand, it is deeply implicated in the ideological state apparatus, churning out hordes of ‘disciplined’ workers to maintain the injustices of the political and economic status quo. Education is hazardous to emancipatory thought.

On the other hand, education can cultivate the highest forms of creative thinking and aesthetic appreciation leading to radical critique. In this sense, it is hazardous to the state apparatus.

Education is both our remedy and our poison.

To give the remedy a chance, join the likes of Noam Chomsky and Tariq Ali in support of the occupation of University College London by students in protest of the UK Government’s imposition of exorbitant fees.
