Dark January Thoughts

1 min read

Been reading Wm Burroughs again and ran across this quote:  “The pyramid of junk, one level eating the level below […] right up to the top or tops since there are many junk pyramids feeding on peoples of the world and all built on basic principles of monopoly.”   

He is talking about the hierarchy of a heroin addict's life, but it occurred to me...no, it shocked me that what he was saying applied to the hierarchies of schooling.  Not a happy January thought, but that is where I sometimes am as I relentlessly burn firewood and keep animals fed and feel the pains of growing older and  no wiser.  C'est le ________, c'est la _____________. You fill in the blanks.
