O:Ready little brother…
Y:Why did you drop out of college?
O:I wanted liberation from education.
Y:And colleges are in the business of education so you had to leave?
O:They are certainly very busy, aren’t they? But I think you misunderstood. I seek to be free from unnecessary confines. Education is a way of opening up what is closed.
Y:Oh! So you sought to find in education a kind of liberty?
O:Just so. The busy-ness of colleges & universities, like so many human institutions, aims at instructive adaptation not educative liberation.
Y:Must I leave college behind as well?
O:The shadow disappears at noon and at midnight. What time do you think it is now?
Y:Thank you little father.
