    1. The opposition of suburban whites to the welfare state (“entitlements”), beginning with the 1970s tax revolts (Burton rails at having to pay high school taxes and then see his son be forced to go to school in the inner city, and against “welfare freeloaders”), only intensified as the “hard-working” (white) “common man” in his orderly suburban family saw the New Deal dream evaporate. Burton declared in 1974: “I wanted to be somebody”, and in the economic environment symbolized by the oil price shock of that year, his identity became more and more at odds with the desire of the excluded in US society to also “be somebody”. By 1976, Burton had abandoned the Democratic party and the New Deal ethos, seeing in Ronald Reagan someone who could “deliver the nation out of its malaise”, with a reprise of Wallace’s “freshness, independence, backbone and scrappy spirit”. This is not a new story. It is rather a reflection of US history as a whole, where a frontier-spirit, classless liberalism is organically bound up with anti-democratic exclusion and an ethic of private responsibility. It is but one facet of American racialized, gendered neoliberalism.

      What if, in fact, we've only just found a local maximum? What if in the changing landscape there are other places we could potentially get to competitively that supply greater maxima? And possibly worse, what if we need to lose value to get from here to unlock even more value there?

    1. MOOCs tend to attract those with already a high level of education, rather than widen access

      MOOCs widen access for those who already have some higher level education and are looking for professional and intellectual development. Thus already privileged groups are getting better access to more educational resources.

      a counterargument: MOOCs can be locally used as a well structured educational resource by local development organizations to serve the underprivileged groups; this will not become a social mobility device, but can potentially serve as a mass literacy tool (including various forms of literacy - basic elements of critical thinking; basic statistics, essential ecological literacy skills.

      locally implemented MOOCs can become a valuable alternative to one-directional broadcasts, a way to organize local developments basing on scientific knowledge and research as opposed to propaganda and superstiions
