A Minneapolis science teacher who recommends teachers include anti-capitalist materials in their classrooms has praised the idea of disrespecting authority.
THE teacher at Highland Park Middle School, Mandi Jung, frequently posts videos on TikTok espousing anti-capitalist and anarchist philosophies. Anarchism is skeptical of all justifications for authority and seeks to abolish systems like capitalism, which it believes maintain unnecessary coercion and hierarchy. Jung also said she identifies with the Industrial Workers of the World, an ideological union tied to socialism and anarchism.
“My students this year have no respect for authority,” said the St. Paul district teacher. “And I like that in a person because I have no respect for authority. But it’s been a frustrating year because I’m the authority. So I’m like, ‘Fuck man,’ but I’m the man.”

Jung recommends bringing anti-capitalist messages into classrooms, such as a Marxist political cartoon, which states, “Capitalism. We govern you. We deceive you. We shoot you. We eat for you.
Regarding the purpose of education, Jung believes it is not just to prepare students to enter the labor market, but to learn more about “nature”.
The science teacher added that conventional cell biology lessons are part of “capitalist indoctrination”.

“Seventh grade science… [is] the year you learn that the mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell and all of that cell biology. So, at the end of the unit, I have [students] pass a test. And one of the questions is “Someone says the nucleus is the most important organelle in the cell.” Do you agree or disagree and why?”
“And almost all the kids say, ‘Yes, I agree. Because without a boss, the cell would be in total chaos. “”

Jung added student responses “cracks me up”, and went on to claim that microscopic bacteria were the “original anarchists”.
“Bacteria don’t have a nucleus, and they’re arguably one of the most successful classes of organisms on the planet. Bacteria here being the original anarchists, right? No nucleus , no master. Seize the ways of metabolism. I don’t know. It’s funny to me,” she said.
