"The demands of students all over the world for greater
participation in the administration of the universities and
formulation of the curricula are only the more superficial
symptoms of the demand for a different kind of education. If
the educational bureaucrary does not understand this message,
it will lose the respect which it receives from students and
eventually that from the rest of the population. On the other
hand, if it becomes 'vulnerable', open and responsive to the in-
terests of the students, it will sense the satisfaction and joy
which meaningful activity carries with it as its reward . .

Education is a personal challenge to make of it what the
student wills It provides the potential for the discovery of
knowledge and of self. Education should be based upon
the principle of human interaction, rather than upon the
absorption of concepts. And it should offer individuals
the opportunity to act, to interact, and to excel. Education
IS a way of thinking, of judging, of living. The problems
ahead of us are difficult and their resolutions of crucial
importance The restoration of man's humanity and his
ability to master change will not be easy problems with
which to deal Education must be one of our foremost aids
as we seek the solutions for the Seventies.

Everyone wants to be something. As
students, we have chosen education as
our means to that end. We must be
prepared to discover ourselves - the
first step toward wisdom. We must be
certain that the pursuit of our ideals is
guided by a concern for life, and we
must not be afraid to continue the pro-
cess of increasing the awareness and in-
volvement already initiated by our
generation. What is "education"? For
what is it preparing us? And, most im-
portant, is it taking us where we want

"Perhaps the most ominous aspect at present is that we seem to lose
control over our own system. We execute the decisions which our com-
puter calculations make for us. We as human beings have no aims except
producing and consuming more and more. We will nothing, nor do we
not-will anything. We are threatened with extinction by nuclear weapons
and with inner deadness by the passiveness which our exclusion from res-
ponsible decision making engenders.
"How did it happen? How did man, at the very height of his victory
over nature, become the prisoner of his own creation and in serious danger
of destroying himself?
"In the search for scientific truth, man came across knowledge that he
could use for the domination of nature. He had tremendous success. But
in the one-sided emphasis on technique and material consumption, man
lost touch with himself, with life. Having lost religious faith and the
humanistic values bound up with it, he concentrated on technical and ma-
terial values and lost the capacity for deep emotional experiences, for the
joy and sadness that accompany them. The machine he build became so
powerful that it developed its own program, which now determines man's
"At the moment, one of the gravest sympyoms of our system is the
fact that our economy rests upon arms production Cplus maintenance
of the whole defense establishmentj and on the principle of maximal
consumption. We have a well-functioning economic system under the con-
dition that we are producing goods which threaten us with physical destruc-
tion, that we tranform the individual into a total passive consumer and
thus deaden him, and that we have created a bureaucracy which makes the
individual feel impotent.
"Are we confronted with a tragic, insolvable dilemma? Must we pro-
duce sick people in order to have a healthy economy, or can we use our
material resources, our inventions, our computers to serve the ends of man?
Must individuals be passive and dependent in order to have strong and
