There is No Such Thing As Neutral

I’m participating over the next month or so in a group reading organized by Bryan Alexander of We Make the Road by Walking by Myles Horton and Paulo Freire.  I’m not going to spend any real time here on background on the authors or the book.  If you go to the link above that’ll give you a sense of what’s going on (and the amazingly intelligent people involved).  I wasn’t even sure I’d have enough thoughts about the material to do much more than tweet a few times, but I ran across something in Chapter 3 a few minutes ago that struck me.  So I thought I’d see how much brain dump I could do here quickly.
