    Statistically, university is one of the most important places to meet your future significant other, with many now to be the denied the opportunity of a university education, what does this mean for our future emotional landscape? The carnal productivity of the nation? What is the future of romance without people educated in the arts & humanities? No Shakepeare or Browning sonnets, no Helen of Troy, no Hero and Leander? As the market colonises every dimension of our lives what is left for love? what prospect to find a partner outside of pay-per-date matchmaking websites and pay-per fuck on street corners? With our universities privatised and our chance to meet like-minded souls closed down imagine the potential for bad partnerships to be formed, the increase in relationship breakdown, children growing up in unstable family environments, imagine the implications for society. When university is privatised we are forced to take our quest for love into public space, and what better place to begin than with the uncomfortable, ostensibly public and yet aggressively private shared space of the tube? …and since the 60s nostalgia is flowing thick and fast in this one, as Vaneigem famously said “people who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.”
