[part of] a poem that would never make it to the stage (a poem with references!!!)

“and through the pedagogy (some say indoctrination) of their choosing-
they kept the hegemonic structure hierarchically in their favor-
bound to the capital that only they could own and so we became
a society obsessed with education that costs capital (social and financial) but
does not pay in property.

“Property, in its present form, is based on the antagonism of capital and wage-labour. Let us examine both sides of this antagonism. To be a capitalist, is to have not only a purely personal, but a social status in production. Capital is a collective product, and only by the united action of many members, nay, in the last resort, only by the united action of all members of society, can it be set in motion. Capital is, therefore, not a personal, it is a social power.”

“The [rich], wherever [they have] got the upper hand, [have] put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. [They have] pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his “natural superiors,” and [have] left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, than callous “cash payment.”” (Marx)
