Henry A. Giroux on Why Faculty Should Join #Occupy

Henry A. Giroux writes movingly on Why Faculty Should Join Occupy Movement Protesters on College Campuses:
The notion of the university as a center of critique and a vital democratic public sphere that cultivates the knowledge, skills, and values necessary for the production of a democratic polity is giving way to a view of the university as a marketing machine essential to the production of identities in which the only obligation of citizenship is to be a consumer.
