Many of us seem to think that by teaching every human being to read and write, we shall solve our human problems; but this idea has proved to be false. The so-called educated are not peace-loving, integrated people, and they too are responsible for the confusion and misery of the world.
The right kind of education means the awakening of intelligence, the fostering of an integrated life, and only such education can create a new culture and a peaceful world; but to bring about this new kind of education, we must make a fresh start on an entirely different basis.

If women, if queer people, if people of color have survived in a world this long that refuses to represent them that must amount to a force much greater than one man with nothing more to invest in than his ego. We have been forced to know how to fight since day one and this is our advantage. When I get dysphoric, I ease in determination. When I hear the quiet voice in my head that tells me, ‘We have done this before. We know how to do this.’
In order to make these changes, we must be aware and constantly acknowledge our privileges. This means understanding and admitting that a majority of the white woman vote went to Trump, and we must work harder to make people aware that racial bias and gender bias cannot be separated, they work together.
