Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Actually, "Pedagogy of the Oppressed" by Freire (1970, 2000) teaches something very similar to the ethos of 'peer specialists' in the health care system. The client does not do recovery work for the specialist; the specialist does not do treatment for the client; but, rather, they practice recovery with each other. Likewise, revolution is done with the people's goals with the people. With a few simple adjustments, this could be a model for the American Revolution. How ironic!

... still reading "Bloodletter" (DS9 #3) by K. W. Jeter (1993) also have started "Tomorrow, the Stars" edited by Robert A. Heinlein (1952). Recently read "Minority Report" by Philip K. Dick and "Literally" by Antonya Nelson (2012). Finished watching season 5 of DS9 and shall pick up season 6 from the library very soon.

Serendipity. I was using the church computer and found an older article which, I must admit, is very academic, and I read or reread the article. It was in Political Theory (February 1995) and by Melissa Williams and about "Justice Toward Groups" and is about 25 pages long. Probably boring for non-academics. But then I am not really too academic!
