How Do You Construct Your Own Political Education?

When it comes to your political education, how do you decide what sources to trust?

What are your criteria to choose what you consume and what source to give more importance to?

As a lot is happening, ALWAYS, I invite you to reflect on your own framework of how you see the world. How do you choose to understand it?

In my episode, I do present my own criteria, without saying this is how it has to be for everyone. Yet that reflection I do wish for everyone!

Please find my end-of-year greeting below!

    To ask what good happened in any year might sound like a controversial question. Yet we have to train ourselves to notice – and to celebrate – the victories for human rights throughout the world. This is what I do in my episode as look at 2022 and identify what good happened in the UK/Palestine, Cuba, and Brazil!

  • Bombs Don’t Liberate
    Both mainstream media and state-owned media have their agendas. Can we educate ourselves to notice them or do we continue attributing concepts like “propaganda” to “the other” and words like “liberation” to what our governments are doing?

  • Shireen Abu Akleh: No Justice, Just Impunity
    Yet the killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is yet another reminder that Israel operates with complete impunity. As the months are passing, we can see no meaningful external investigation is taking place.
