This is an extended Talk FURIE with some regular Wine Cellar News preloaded on the front end.
This discussion touches on the role of the intellectual class (past and present), violence in academia and an emphasis on education.
The next episodes of Talk FURIE will be 1. About Astroturfing the authenticity out of movements and 2. How William J Jackson would run a socialist factory.
