Professor David J. Blacker of the University of Delaware author of the new book The Falling Rate of Learning and the Neoliberal Endgame explains the roots of modern primary education in the United States, why changes in capitalist production drive education policy, what is the falling rate of profit? Why being exploited under capitalism is better than being disposed of, what neo-liberalism is a symptom of, why universal education is longer needed for modern capitalism and why we are moving towards an economy of eliminationism.
Also! Dr. Ben Carson’s twisted view of history with a response from President George Washington, an awkward IM, Sam Seder “fires” a listener, and a classic debate with a Libertarian who believes “global warming is bullshit.”
