"Holborn London 2010. Ten years into the new century and the university students are still marching in the streets. The photo on the cover of Lacan's Seminar XVII shows the 20th century student raising his impudent grin to the Law. Were the 21st century student to raise his eyes above the red flag, he would see a figure of the discourse Lacan said was governing him: capitalism, for whom knowledge has become a commodity like any other in its effort to reduce all to the universal equivalent of money."
