Jeanne Benameur's Les Insurrections Singulières shows a young working class man grow through daring to leave his home -with an elderly lover of books as his guide.

Short of the Basic Income and Universal Health Care (as a Single Payer System), the single most helpful institution for allowing all members of society to contribute to their unique and fulles capacity may be the Public Library system.

Library, or Internet?

I can't seem to access the book. I strongly agree with making sure Everybody has as much access to as much information as they can use; I *think* there is an argument to be made in favor of libraries as separate and distinct from available on-line information.

Can't focus on that argument right now, but would be happy to get back to it with you as time and resources permit.

best,

Joel

I'm pretty sure that the IEEE 'Forum' has been online all this millennium. 'Science' and 'Nature' and a bunch of others, also. Still available in print also, of course, but they're the same articles either way.

But your point about the librarians was why I was bringing it up. They not only find what you're looking for, they teach you to find what you're looking for. I don't think it's possible to be a decent librarian without also being a damn good teacher.

Indecent librarians being another thing entirely, of course.

best,

Joel
