working together for social inclusion in America
Learning the skills and developing the tools of effective organizing like investigative research, grassroots communication, and principles of psychological warfare (my hedge school idea) should not be conflated with progressive opportunism or liberal elitism. Progressive careerists posing as community activists are as much a hindrance to democracy as their authoritarian brethren known as neo-conservatives.
Pedagogy (the science of teaching), developed by and for the marginalized themselves, is the only means of overcoming social exclusion.
Native American tribal schools are one example of this. These and other hedge schools both change and preserve consciousness, as well as build political autonomy and economic independence.
