Quotebag #120

The expression “a liberal education” originally meant one worthy of freemen. Such is education simply in a true and broad sense. But education ordinarily so-called– the learning of trades and professions which is designed to enable men to earn their living, or to fit them for a particular station in life–is servile.

Henry Thoreau, 1859

There are good reasons for young kids to want to go to the best school possible, but careerism is not one of them.
Michael O. Church

Just guessing, the new tax bill will not imperil the jobs of accountants, can’t let the riff-raff get out of hand…

The reason why people will always have a hard time believing in the idea of reciprocity in transparency is that it that knowing the elite’s misbehavior is completely useless unless you have some way to punish them. Or to put it in this little dialogue:
Elite: I can know everything about you, peon, including your treasonous thoughts.
Peon: I also know everything about you, including your treasonous actions.
Elite: That’s cute. I also have a death squad. What you gonna do about it, insect ?
Peon: Oh… Forgot about the death squad.
Without some way for mister peon to counter act the traditional strengths of elites, ie: money, power, lackeys, brute force, he is going to be very reticent to give up his one advantage of stealth.
