We discuss our extremely overburdened public education system, which has been helping millions of families during the pandemic and yet is being gutted by austerity (via “progressive” Democrats!!). We also talk about how teachers are having to protect their international students from ICE, and how many schools have no emergency plan for the staff and will potentially just close instead of adapt to new safety standards.

We discuss the bleak the state of art institutions. Schools and museums have been laying off staff without many cuts to executive pay or dips into endowments. They started with low level freelancers, moved on to anyone who to dared unionize, and are now making serious cuts to full-time positions. We use the viral gun-toting wealthy couple and their Louvre of a house to compare institutions to the democratic party—can they be reformed within capitalism, should they be abolished, and how?
