From soon to be published book:Freire tell us that those who benefit most by the oppression of others, react almost instinctively against any experiment in education which stimulates the critical facilities and is not content with a partial view of reality but always seeks out the ties which link one point to another and one problem to another.He says of education provided by oppressors that it represents “false charity” in which, oppressors use their ‘humanitarianism’ to preserve a profitable situation. Thus they react almost instinctively against any experiment in education which stimulates the critical faculties and is not content with a partial view of reality but always seeks out ties which link one point to another and one problem to another…Indeed, the interests of the oppressors lie in “changing the conscious of the oppressed, but not the situation that oppresses them.” (citing Simone de Beauvoir, La Pens’ee de Droite, Aujord’hui). P.74
