Assunto: “The Role of Higher Education in Challenging Power"

Still on the book “The future of Universities” that should be called "The future of corporate universities" see interesting PhD in attachment from which i took the text below from page 45 section “The Role of Higher Education in Challenging Power:
“Many prominent figures have argued that the university should, first and foremost, act as a site of subversion and liberation. Former US President Thomas Jefferson, for example, claimed that a primary purpose of the academy was to exercise an independent critique of church and state, in order to “unmask their usurpation, and monopolies of honors, wealth and power”

Of course there are those who believe that universities are just places where highly skilled labour is been taught ! Donald Trump is one, Orbán is another and Bolsonaro is another one.
