Wendell Berry
“To mind being disliked by a woman you don’t desire and are not married to is yet another serious failure of common sense.”
Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow

“We live in a time that demands a discourse of both critique and possibility, one that recognizes that without an informed citizenry, collective struggle, and viable social movements, democracy will slip out of our reach and we will arrive at a new stage of history marked by the birth of an authoritarianism that not only disdains all vestiges of democracy but is more than willing to relegate it to a distant memory.”
Henry A. Giroux, Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism

Paulo Freire
“The oppressed, having internalized the image of the oppressor and adopted his guidelines, are fearful of freedom.”
Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed
