Paulo Freire: Inquiry & Violence

“Any situation in which some individuals prevent others from engaging in the process of inquiry is one of violence. The means used are not important; to alienate human beings from their own decision making is to change them into objects.”

-Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed (1970, p. 85)
