Paulo Freire on Freedom

From Pedagogy of the Oppressed, Chapter 1 (page 47):

Freedom is not an ideal located outside of man; nor is it an idea which becomes a myth.

This line is from a section discussing how the oppressed have internalised the images of the oppressor and everything that is required for the oppressed to achieve freedom.

Images used are photos that I took while in Budapest. It’s of the Living Memorial placed in front of an ahistorical and fascist/Nazi monument that Viktor Orbán constructed under the cover of night.
