The professionalism that we're taught by society, by schools and by establishments is actually no more than a set of old rules that are designed to keep hierarchy stable and add a layer of control to a workforce.

@creativeliberationlab Why do you think schools have bells to signal it's time to move to the next class? Early factories used bells to tell workers when to move to another part on the factory line.


The industrial revolution and capitalism created the modern day educational system... Just a manufacturing of "useful citizens."

@creativeliberationlab There was also a lot of hatred involved. Public schools rose with the increase in southern European immigration to turn Italians and them non-Protestant white folks into 'decent' Americans who work in factories.
