“It is only in its era of monopoly that the capitalist mode of production takes over the totality of individual, family, and social needs and, in subordinating them to the market, also reshapes them to serve the needs of capital. . . . How capitalism transformed all of society into a gigantic marketplace is a process that has been little investigated, although it is one of the keys to all recent social history.”

—Harry Braverman, Labor and Monopoly Capital

Join us for a discussion on the Neo-Liberal University, its affects on students, faculty, and the working class, and how the attack on higher education relates to the capitalist offensive as a whole.
