IVAN ILLICH VIDEO INTERVIEW

I have to reblog this. Ivan Illich is undoubtedly one of humanity’s greatest thinkers.

AGENT SWARM

Thanks to Angela Roothaan for drawing my attention to this:

Very interesting interview. There is a little mistranslation at the beginning when he talks about the myth of Pandora and repeated a few times. He says that the “words” escape from the box. In fact it is not the “words” (mots) but the evils (maux), as everyone knows. These two words are homophones in French, hence the error, which is quite suggestive anyhow.
