As LSSI Loses a Vote in California, It Eyes Beleaguered British Libraries

link shared Jul 8, 2011 • 0 comments • 557 views

Here is some rare good news...for Californians at least. California Public Libraries escaped privatization. But did you even know this was on the table?

 

The idea of the Public has been almost eliminated by 30-40 years of neoliberal restructuring. Audit culture is so embedded in our everyday experience that if we aren't remarkably careful we end up believing the lie that the value of everything (eg libraries) can only be measured by a balance sheet. I am saying NO - there are things such as libraries, schools/universities, police & fire, public spaces (not to mention healthcare) etc that should be untouchable and should be valued in terms of the good they do for our society
