Tagore: Demonic Machine

Tuesday, October 15, 13
The discussion, so far, has proceeded on the assumption that the largescale production of homespun thread and cloth will result in the
alleviation of the country's poverty. My complaint is that by the
promulgation of this confusion between swaraj and charkha, the mind of
the country is being distracted from swaraj.

– Rabindranath Tagore

potential abilities, as reality's demands shift.”
“How to let go of the past….past service in particular earns no employee a
guaranteed place.”

Tuesday, October 15, 13
Sennet (2006)
“This trait of personality resembles more the consumer ever avid for new
things, discarding old if perfectly serviceable goods, rather than the owner
who jealousy guards what he or she already possesses.”
Prof. Richard Sennett. The Culture of the New Capitalism (Kindle Locations
42-44). Kindle Edition.

Tuesday, October 15, 13
Pinch and Swedberg (2008)
