Feeling tired? Oppressed?

Mentioned the other day that I'd begun Paulo Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and predicted that I'd never get through it.

I didn't, of course, because it's vague, poorly written Marxist claptrap (surprise!) which doesn't even rise to the level of mockworthiness. But Sol Stern at City Journal, no doubt uncoincidentally (Sol's always copying me) apparently managed to read the whole thing: Pedagogy of the Oppressor.

I searched Paulo Freire claptrap and was surprised in the least to find that someone had written those exact words. Thanks.
