397: We’re the House

Play

C-Realm_397_coverIn this episode of the C-Realm Podcast, KMO and guest, David J. Blacker, explore the themes of David’s new book, The Falling Rate of Learning and the Neoliberal Endgame. What’s worse than being exploited by capitalists? Suddenly NOT being exploited by capitalists when that’s the only way to earn a living that you’ve ever known. If public education in the 20th Century was shaped by the needs of capitalist production, what form does education take when what capitalists really need a growing segment of the population to do is go away? Welcome to the era of eliminationism.

 

Music by Dawn Drake and  ZapOte.
