Education doesn’t mean telling people what to believe — it means learning from them and with them.
Karl Marx said, “The task is not just to understand the world but to change it.” A variant to keep in mind is that if you want to change the world you’d better try to understand it. That doesn’t mean listening to a talk or reading a book, though that’s helpful sometimes. You learn from participating. You learn from others. You learn from the people you’re trying to organize. We all have to gain the understanding and the experience to formulate and implement ideas.
the time of the one percent
No matter how you look at it the time of the top 1 percent in this county’s overindulgence will start to collapse even if these protesters get removed, or the people in NY get frozen over, the fact that this blatant removal of power from the government and into these private companies is now out in the open means there can only be more attention headed there way. With the way things are going either people will get better informed or they will be directly affected by the corruption, and something will have to be done. This is only the start.
