Thread: responsibility

    Having written the first post in this thread almost two years ago, I've found that my concerns have changed somewhat but the issue itself has changed none.
    In regards to education, I've learnt that universities won't hesitate to cut staff, funding, resources etc. etc. to make money. Also that any kind of useful education depends heavily on circumstantial chance encounters with individual educators within these institutions who have compatible agendas.
    My personal experience/observations are that universities, at least in the case of art and design schools, are childcare centres for overgrown adult-babies and lost high school graduates who have all come to the realisation that consumerism and office jobs suck. They're inflated institutions stuffed with half-way creatives who can afford to waste whatever amount of time and money until reality hits.
    To say even for argument's sake whether the ignorant middle class would change their lives after being handed some valuable knowledge is irrelevant. Given how shit education systems are, its pretty rubbish to speculate them being capable of achieving such a thing. I'm thinking realistic change isn't produced through rhetoric, but through a kind of rhizomatic influence that can't be controlled centrally. Whether that happens in or out of educational pretence is coincidence.
    but Faust, who do you mean by the new generation?

    Mmm, the kids who go to college now!

    The education system is not as bad as you say. Good ideas germinate there.

    And, there are all kinds of kids who go to design schools (yes, some of those you mention, too).

    That was a very informative article, thanks for sharing this.

    Unfortunately, there will always be greedy businesses supported by uninformed consumers...

    As James Kunstler said, "Consumers do not have obligations, responsibilities and duties to their fellow human beings."
