re: Abolishing the university 

@denikombucha it's really interesting stuff. I mean, I think one of the things that an abolition approach enables us to do is see just how much we're trying to do in one institution. Like, the university is not just a site of knowledge production and analysis, it's also a social mobility tool. Do those two things (not to mention other functions) do they have anything in common?

re: Abolishing the university 

@denikombucha like, yes, we need away to continue the human experiment where we combine ideas (and materials, and cultures, and people) in different ways and see what the fuck happens! But we also, currently, need a place that takes someone whose trapped in a life of pain and suffering that we call "a life of poverty" and give them the skills and opportunities not to be! Does that have to be the same place? I dunno!

@MoMartin @denikombucha@playvicious.social crucially the products of this research must be available to everyone. This is i think necessary to abolishing the class system itself and resulting poverty. People rightly associate information with mobility, but there is a tremendous inequity when you gatekeep information and resources; people who are already wealthy access education with greater ease than poor people, in higher percentages

@MoMartin @denikombucha@playvicious.social which ultimately perperuates the inequality even if it permits limited movement within it for a small number of people
