Who is corrupting care and love, discuss essayists?
In an essay that has appeared in the journal "Vimukt Shiksha" brought out by Udaipur-based NGO called Shikshantar, Authors DL Stuchul, G Esteva and MS Prakash in their essay titled "From a Pedagogy of Liberation to Liberation from Pedagogy" talks of corruption of love and care and put forth, "In its modern institutional form, qua service, care is the mask of love. This mask is not a false face. The modernized service providers believe in his or her care or love more than even the serviced."

While J McNight goes a step further to say that the mask of love and care is the face itself since it obscures the economic interest behind it. It seems that love and care have become the integral part of economic society and are being marketed systematically by creating a need for it and establishment of care industry. In fact, the marketing of care and love both tantamount to corruption and money making, he discloses.

According to the authors, the corruption of love through caring and service industry transforms human beings into mere clients, beneficiaries and customers for commodities called love and care.

To me, it seems that the health and education, the two services based on love and care, have been thoroughly commercialised and turned into the facilities to be traded for money. So, now we have schools and hospitals with five star and the state-of-the-art facilities as substitutes for love and care.
