As soon as education started to be considered an indispensable instrument for the expansion of the market, we saw its fundamentals of political emancipation and personal expansion disappear. Educating is no longer about leading young people to understand the laws of the world. According to the capitalist model, initial school education refers to the offer of basic skills that allow the subject to seek, throughout his life, his permanent training which, in turn, will enable him to incorporate the latest knowledge and techniques demanded by the market. Captured by the capitalist's discourse, the teacher ceases to act subjectively from his place as an adult, responsible for the transition of the youngest in this world, as the founding laws of subjectivity are covered by the false testimony that there is no law. Yet, the laws of language are not subject to dissimulation and demand the prohibition of enjoyment. Thus, an impasse is created for the subject who hears the announcement of the techno scientific discourse that there is no limit and, therefore, access to enjoyment is free, but that faces its own castration, since, inevitably, it is subjected to language. .
