Re: <nettime> Debt Campaign Launch


There are logic flaws here.

If system X is found untenable by its subjects because of the demands it
imposes on those subjects, then requiring that the departure from X must be
conditioned by first fulfilling all these demands first, is ... silly.

Incidentally, X does work like Hotel California, and you can never leave.

And, non-incidentally, this has everything to do with inequality - for haves,
the education is free because they don't feel its cost, it's a small change.
For have nots, it's a ticket to debtors prison. The impact is completely
different.
