Andrew Gavin Marshall joins us to discuss his latest three-part essay on “Class War and the College Crisis.” We talk about how the education system is used to create and maintain national identity, how this process is used for the benefit of the ruling class, and possible ways that students, academics, and the public generally can use this knowledge to empower a meaningful critique of the dominant social hierarchy. If you appreciate Marshall and his work, don’t forget to support his People’s Book Project.
