Oh dear, imagine that. Publishers running to the company they know will find a way to stifle competition.

We can't have the middle class being able to afford an education which would allow them to compete with the upper class, now can we?

It sure looks as if someone wants to see education become an elite class privilege again.Edited by HAF_wit - 3/9/12 at 6:56am
