Paulo Freire on thinking ahead… #hypocrisy #epicfail

“What can we do today, so that tomorrow we can do what we are unable to do today?”
– Paulo Freire

Which offsets a true horrorshow I had recently because I went to something because there was going to be a usage of Freire’s ideas. Except, of course, there wasn’t – there just more “sage” (har har) on the stage turning everyone into ego-fodder. As so often, I handled the situation badly. Sigh.

Proposition: Lecturing about participation is like fighting for peace is like fucking for virginity.
