Abstract

...the state tends to create and maintain a certain type of civilization and of citizen (and hence of collective life and individual relations), and to eliminate certain customs and attitudes and to disseminate others…the Law will be its instrument for this purpose (together with the school system, and other institutions and activities). (Gramsci, 1971, p. 246)
