Technical training in the university of the absurd will, of course, be superb. The new industrial state will provide- in fact, already is providing- the money and resources to train the physicists, chemists. engineers, sociologists, psychologists, and mathematicians needed to make the new technocracy function properly. (I don't mean to depreciate this contribution; it is of course, important and vital.) And as the university becomes increasingly proficient in its vocation al programs, it will increasingly reflect the corporate character of the society within which it functions, and the pervasive motivation in American education will be to achieve success in the system.
