Philosophy News Network: Street Philosophy

Simone de Beauvoir: "We come to you live with breaking report, are your children learning dangerous philosophy....ON THE STREET?!"

News Ticker:" NBC's “The Next Great Philosopher” canceled after everyone realized philosophy is boring."

de Beauvoir: "It is estimated that approximately one in five teenagers will encounter some form of illegal street philosophy before the age of eighteen. Bertrand Russell comes to us with this shocking report."

News Ticker: "Philosopher's union criticize the new infrastructure bill for lack of armchairs"

Bertrand Russell: "Thank you, de Beauvoir. I are here with with an illegal street philosopher, selling his ideas in Paris. He prefers to stay anonymous."

Althusser: "No, i told you, my name is Louis Althusser. You said this would be on television. I'm trying to become a famous intellectual!"

Althusser: "Hey kid, want a structural critique of reformist socialism?"
Kid: "Hook me up, man."

Russell: "So tell me, why sell your philosophy here, rather than through the traditional structure of the university?"
Althusser: "Because the university is part of the ideological state apparatus which controls and re-enforces the hegemonic ideology of the ruling capitalist class. "

Althusser: "Also, have you seen the academic job market?"

Russell: "So what-"

Althusser: "Hey!"

Althusser: "Zizek, stop stealing my philosophy!"
Zizek: "The concept of owning ideas is part of ruling class ideology!"
Althusser: "I know, that's MY idea!"

Russell: "Back to you, de Beauvoir."

News Ticker: "The Hard Problem of Consciousness solved after everyone agrees they are sick of talking about it."

de Beauvoir: "Thank you, join us next week for our report on epistemological skepticism. What is impossible to know? And can it kill you?"

News Ticker: "Aaron Rodgers draws controversy after admitting he doesn't believe in counter-factuals"
Under communism, you won't be able to own an idea. If you steal other people's ideas you will still be widely regarded as a loser, however.
