Literary Subversion & Dissidence

10 modules | 360 Credits | 10 semesters

Clagsborough College is renowned for allowing students to study and think about whatever they want, when they want, but under the principle of service to others through the arts. There's no pass or fail here. We presuppose that those who attend do so because they are self-motivated and self-reliant learners.  Each student is encouraged to research educational theory and evaluate their own performance. Credits are awarded by consensus. Assessment is a wholly democratic process. Self-deception is futile because degrees awarded by the college are recognised only by Jamāʻat al-Ikhwān al-Idries (the Brethren of Enoch), a union devoted to worldwide non-violent subversion and dissidence. Our order facilitates peaceful anarcho-socialist revolutions across the globe.

Likewise, students are encouraged to systematically develop their own programmes of study. The aim is neither to emulate academic research methods nor to to acquire skills for the job market. Preparing for work in the neoliberal polity is, we believe, like polishing one's neck for the noose. The supposition is that attendance at our college is motivated by a fervent desire to peacefully dismantle the free market economy and instigate a libertarian socialist revolution worldwide.
