Knowledge, Learning, Community

Good short interview with Noam Chomsky that makes two good points about the education system: first, that "if you do it (ie., learn) because you want to find out, and you explore and you make mistakes and you look in the wrong place and so on, then ultimately you remember," and second, more interestingly, while "US tuition is now sky high – in part it selects things on a class basis but more than that, it imposes a debt burden. So if you come out of college with a big debt you’re not going to be free to do what you want to do."
