School Isn’t Uber And Never Should Be
Shanna Peeples

Know the master, know the servant.

When the conversation is framed by the privileged, everything is a discretionary purchase. “If people choose to remain ignorant; neglect education; seek and embrace delusion…Well, let them.”

Except that it’s not true. Critical medical care is not discretionary. Neither is basic literacy (and numeracy). Survival follows a different logic.

But there’s a political benefit to having a poor, ignorant, desperate population. You can bend them to your will like so many cattle. Machiavelli wrote a how-to book on this some time ago.

Public goods are not valuable to those who would rather devalue the public.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
