Example text

There are policies for the inclusion of blacks, the poor, deaf, women, young people, among others. There is an undeniable pragmatism derived from the conflicting interest games to which the governments will always attend selectively and partially. However, already in Pedagogy of the Oppressed Freire denounced that marginalization would not be resolved with the simple “integration” of marginalized persons, since this marginalization was inherent to the system. The truth, however, is that the oppressed are not “marginalized,” are not men living “outside” society.

Octavio Ianni will say that it is a phenomenon similar to those brought about by the epistemological ruptures represented by the discovery by Copernicus that the earth is not the center of the universe, by Darwin’s claim that humans are not simply the children of God, or by Freud’s finding that humans are a labyrinth of unconscious thoughts and feelings. The discovery that the earth turned into a world, that the globe is not just an astronomical figure, but the territory on which all are related and bound together, differentiated and antagonistic—this discovery surprises, enchants, and brings fear.

What is intriguing is that, if this is a sign of a world gone wrong, this world was created with the help of self-sacrificing educators in all parts of the planet. Those who planned the attack and piloted the airplanes that destroyed the World Trade Center and hit the Pentagon as well as those who, some time later, began to plan and execute a war of retribution and promise to take it to all places of the world wherever there is “evil,” and the thousands of journalists who have the role of passing on the information of the generals and us, who watch everything, complacent or revolted, we all have been educated, some of us within the modern standards, very well educated, with the right to university and access to all sorts of information.
