A Student’s Reminder

Everything is business in the neo-liberal era. Nothing can be of any value until and unless it can be used to make profit. The market is supreme and it should flourish at all costs. This idea is crippling our sense of social responsibility. The never ending budget cuts in social welfare schemes, the bailout packages handed out to the corporate world and tax write offs for the rich clearly indicate where the government’s allegiance lies. The recent attacks on the institutions of higher education across the country are the demonic offspring of this unholy alliance.
