"In the city of my birth, I had a dream..."
Quote of the Day (In sympathy with the student protest in the UK today.) 
10th-Nov-2010 10:48 pm
The protest as a whole was extremely important, not just because of the large numbers it attracted, and shouldn't be understood simply in economic terms as a complaint against fees. It also represented the serious anger many feel about cuts to universities as they currently stand, and the ideological devastation of the education system if the coalition gets its way. It was a protest against the narrowing of horizons; a protest against Lib Dem hypocrisy; a protest against the increasingly utilitarian approach to human life that sees degrees as nothing but "investments" by individuals, and denies any link between education and the broader social good. - Nina Power, Student protest: we are all in this together, Guardian, November 10, 2010
