I have been an educator since 1977, a teacher for more years, a counselor for 23 years now, and a professor of Social Theology for a great part of those years.
Yes, I teach about Social Justice.
And yes, I am old enough to know the difference between manipulative propaganda and objective reportage that comes from responsible (ideologically neutral) journalism.
Whilst I have no direct proofs, I am aware of ideological, macro-economic, geo-political and liberalist, materialist, collectivist or capitalist agenda being pushed subtly and not so subtly, covertly or otherwise, by powerful governments that have their own designs for poorer, smaller, and graft-ridden, corrupt countries like the country I have chosen and decided to remain a citizen of.
I am also aware that the same countries may be undermined by powerful lobby groups and forces right within their shores that are either liberalist materialist or collectivist materialist.
No country is spared of either extreme ideology.
Both extreme ideologies have their own machinery to manipulate, misinform, co-opt, and otherwise miseducate the oftentimes unsuspecting masses whose only source of information may be what they are in fact, exposed to a great part of their waking hours.
No matter the political color one supports or otherwise, the glaring fact remains that Social Justice and Equity remain to be elusive dreams of a people, who, for the most part, are poor and powerless.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
