U of O Watch mission, in the words of Foucault...

"One knows … that the university and in a general way, all teaching systems, which appear simply to disseminate knowledge, are made to maintain a certain social class in power; and to exclude the instruments of power of another social class. … It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticise the workings of institutions, which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticise and attack them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked, so that one can fight against them." -- Foucault, debating Chomsky, 1971.

U of O Watch mission, in the words of Socrates...

"An education obtained with money is worse than no education at all." -- Socrates

Just a thought about Allan Rock and the Globe & Mail

The Globe & Mail is dedicated to the Liberal Machine. Why then did several Globe & Mail editorials so viciously trash Rock about the embattled president's hockey team fiasco? Never before seen.

(Not to diminish the magnitude of the fiasco, which may yet lead to a lawsuit or settlement.)

Rock even felt compelled to respond in fanfare, with the usual empty lines, in a desperate move to attempt damage-control.

My guess is that -- in the context of Justin Trudeau being positioned as the next Prime Minister (even Brian Mulroney is chiming in) -- the Liberal bosses and their funders do NOT want Rock and his baggage back on the scene.

The message is clear: Stay away. Do another term of destruction at the U of O if need be. You have not been cleansed of your famous "shit magnet in his pocket" image.

Too bad for the U of O that its president will not have more important matters to attend to.

Just a thought.
