And above all: every policeman knows that though governments may change, the police remains. — Leon Trotsky, Fascism: What it is and how to fight it

The discovery of gold and silver in America, the extirpation, enslavement, and entombment in mines of the aboriginal population, the beginning of the conquest and looting of the East Indies, the turning of Africa into a warren for the commercial hunting of black-skins, signalized the rosy dawn of the era of capitalist production.  … If money … comes into the world with a congenital blood-stain on one cheek, capital comes dripping from head to foot, from every pore, with blood and dirt. —  “Capital”, Volume One, Part VIII, Chapter 31, (the) “Genesis of the Industrial Capitalist”

The reform, proposed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), with the OECD-Mexico Agreement to Improve the Quality of Education in Schools of Mexico, aims to lay the groundwork to shift education from being a State responsibility to instead being resolved in the realm of the financial market.  By Renata Bessi and Santiago Navarro F.
