epistemological

Intellectuals have to make it look complicated.

It’s part of their job.

Noam Chomsky, publicity for ‘Four Horseman’ documentary: http://www.fourhorsemenfilm.com/ (very interesting).

 

chomsky has made some pertinent (as ever) remarks on education: once taught in a formal education it is necessary for the individual to teach themselves again… relearning and forgetting whatever the accepted line might be.

school & jobcentre will teach you how to fit into your place in this world; knowledge is power and grey knowledge; charles fort’ ‘damned knowledge’ perhaps, is dangerous. as is a population which thinks for itself; where there is room for epistemological doubt.

libraries are being shut down, the places where people can go for warmth and information & art is the province of academics, speculators & posers.
