❝ Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can’t afford the time to think. ❞
Noam Chomsky (via suddenlyalive)
This is not true.
We have plenty of time to THINK about changing society. We even have time to write and talk about it.
What debt systems do is take your time and your power to DO something about changing society.
I can daydream about a better world while I work. I can snatch a few minutes to bang up a blog post. But I can’t dedicate my days to rallies. I can’t travel halfway across the country to organize. I can’t take direct action because I can’t afford the HOURS.
