The Modern Education System and the Roots of Oppression

With Layla AbdelRahim

It was great to have Layla Abdelrahim on DGP once more. She has expanded our minds and horizons several times before with her analyses of, among other things, the Trayvon Martin incident, radical ecology & primitivism, and the origins of civilized racism.

She recently spoke with me about what the outrageous police attack on a school girl in South Carolina reveals about the true purpose of the modern education system. We also explored how the institutions of human civilization depend upon and thrive on brutality, hierarchies, and inequality.
