Murray Rothbard wrote an essay whose title pointed out the irony of our current school system.  It's "free" in the sense you don't get directly billed for it (tho' obviously we all pay for it) and yet it's compulsory.  What kind of a system needs to operate under compulsion?  I bet the attendees of this meetup can venture a guess.  BTW, here is a link to Rothbard's essay, which is fairly long so not "officially assigned" material for this meetup:

We will instead discuss the very short commentary by Lew Rockwell linked at the very top of this note.  See ya' Monday.
