Nothing clever here, just a final excerpt before I go jump of a bridge [emphases are mine]

From Catherine Osborne, The Presocratics, pp. 116-117:

One recurrent worry expressed by Plato’s Socrates was the idea that if one teaches for fees one must tailor what one teaches to what the paymaster dictates. Socrates, unlike the Sophists, charged no fees. And he, unlike the Sophists, was prepared always to speak his own mind (or would have spoken his own mind, if he’d known what it was). …

Exercise to the reader: Apply the concerns of Plato’s Socrates to current phenomenon of the neoliberalisation of education. But, more to the point, apply it to my headstone.
