A violent excess of “realism” is being forced upon young people.
“…I’ve kind of made sure i’ve been involved in a lot of extra-curricular stuff.”
“You were actually thinking about your CV, age 19 or 20?”
“I was. You have to have a CV at the back of your head…”
And you can forget about holding onto anything like your precious “values” as a politics student. How are you going to eat:
“As a politics student [with values]…you never want to become a careerist… someone who’s always looking for what kind of job you can get… but actually you don’t have a choice to think about that. You don’t have a choice but to become a sellout always thinking about how to get a job.”
