This is the contemporary academic. And if it isn’t, this is where the Bologna Process is taking us. And that’s exactly the direction of the recently-announced Greek Government’s “reform”, an all-out attack on higher education, yet another all-out attack on public and democratic institutions in the name of the needs of the market and of “modernization”.
We live in the context of a global capitalist Crisis. Of a European-wide trend to ever harsher austerity. Of increasing right-wing radicalization. Of ever accelerating removal of power from democratic institutions in favor of nomenklaturas of the technocrat “experts”.
This is class war. We must dissent.
