From a Marxist point of view, culture is "bisexual' since it carries a double meaning; it puts end to slavery as well as it keeps it. Giving people the opportunity of free education is a kind of freedom since everybody has access to education, and since education leads to civilization. But from a Marxist point of view, by making education, capitalists are increasing the rate of birth. Therefore, more educated people, more workers, more money. This reminds of George Orwell in 1984, when he said: "War is peace. Freedom is slavery." War is peace to the politicians; it's peace to their money. Freing people by giving free education is enslaving them in a way. Facebook on thr internet gives the illusion of globalization, but it is also a slaverysince everybody becomes concerned in everybody's private life. It's not the openness of people to the world, but a slavery to eveybody's own world. Star Academy gives the illusion of producing professional singers and "stars", but in fact it's a slavery since it provides the capitalists with more money. The more singers, the more celebrations, the more money. The ending of descrimination against minorities is also a freedom and a slavery at the sam time. For example, by lowering the price of milk people would not limit the rte of birth. Therefore, more birh, more consumers, more workers, more money. It gives the illusion of freedom and equality between poor and rich by giving them access ovthe same product which is milk. Finally, daily radio programs on nutrition and health mak people consumers of a pacific kind of foodwhih is more expensive than ordinary food. It's an illusion of becoming healthier and physically good looking, but in fact it's more money for teir pockets.
