Clarifications on "Comrade" Illich
In a recent post I included a passage from Ivan Illich that seemed to draw the ire of Paddy. He found the world of Hogwart to be preferable to the vision of Illich and made some disparaging remarks about him, refering to him as "Commrade" Illich and wondering if he sent his children to private schools. Illich was not a Russian party thug and he had no children. Ivan Illich was a Roman Catholic Priest. Rather than sing the praises of DeSchooling Society and Illich, I will simply provide you with a link to his life and the complete text of several of his works.
If Paddy would like to provide us all with his recommended reading list for the French Revolution it would be greatly appreciated.
