Paul Goodman Changed My Life

Paul Goodman:

The essence of an honest scholar is to point out to people what could be done, how it could be done, why that conception is the most direct and probably the only one which really works in the end and then hope that you educate the public. Just what the professional has to do is to elevate the public to sense. ...
Most professionals are finks. They don't begin to remember what it's like to be a real professional; an engineer who'll say when they tell him that we've decided to build a road here and there say "That's a rotten place to build a road, it's bad for the communities, take your road and fuck yourself."

Available on Netflix.
