1. Our labour and our society are folded inside a
systemic, historical crisis of capitalism. This
secular crisis demands a political return.
1. Historical, socialised value is being
accumulated through commodification and
coercion. There is no alternative.
1. The University is a central site of struggle
over our past, in our present, and for our
future. What is to be done?
Are you such a dreamer
To put the world to rights?
I'll stay home forever
Where two and two always makes a five
2+2=5 (The Lukewarm). 2003. Radiohead.

There is no way out
You can scream and you can shout
It is too late now
Because you have not been paying attention
2+2=5 (The Lukewarm). 2003. Radiohead.
pay attention
there is no alternative
Debt is a way of life.
"Anyone put off... university by fear of...
debt doesn’t deserve to be at university in
the first place”
Michael Gove, quoted at Next Left: http://bit.ly/foMuBQ
