Learning to be More

Published: September 28, 2008, Author: JayTaber

In Motion Magazine interviews Raymundo Sanchez Barraza about the indigenous intercultural system of informal education in Chiapas, Mexico. In A University Without Shoes, Barraza explains that saying no to established power — which is in terminal crisis — requires both understanding the historic world system, as well as developing a world vision based on “learning to be more”. That, according to Barraza, can only be done by reinforcing the cognitive, organizational, and practical ability to resist. “Hope,” says Barraza, “belongs to the resistance.”
