That virtue we appreciate is as much ours as another's. We see so much only as we possess.

The good thing about uncooperative people is that you needn't fear making an enemy of them, because they won't help you any less than they did before.

"By exposing the shortcomings of authoritarian pseudo-solutions to social problems, anarchists can hope by precept and action to strike the same spark of protest off in those who long since gave up hope. When enough people have seen through the swindle of authoritarian systems clearly enough to feel cheated themselves, then it won't matter whether they vote with their hands or their feet. One way or another society will just have to move in an anarchist direction." - Bob Green

"The most effective anarchists have either been propagandists, like Kropotkin, or pioneers in the educational field like Homer Lane and A. S. Neill.. In the industrial field neither syndicalism nor mutual aid has fired the imagination of any significant proportion of the population. So far from being interested in workers' control, the average worker cannot be bothered to take an active part in Union activities." - Bob Green. https://libcom.org/library/ethics-anarchism
"There are no short cuts to the free society. The problem is basically educational, and the process is inevitably a long one. The most that can be hoped and worked for is that the next generation will be less authoritarian in outlook than the present one." https://libcom.org/library/ethics-anarchism
"In attempting to analyse the value systems of anarchists it is not suggested that they can be sorted into three neat piles, egotistic, humanitarian and hard core. Many anarchists, possibly most, have never bothered to consider to what extent their anarchism is based on self interest, a love of mankind, or an article of faith concerning the nature of man. Elements of all three may probably be found in various proportions in all anarchists." Bob Green. https://libcom.org/library/ethics-anarchism
My paper "Towards a Cross-Cultural Conceptual Framework for Researching Social and Emotional Education" was just published in The International Academic Forum (IAFOR) Journal of Education.

https://iafor.org/journal/iafor-journal-of-education/volume-6-Issue-3/article-7/

Abstract:
The central aim of this study was to investigate how different countries practice social and emotional education (SEE) using a comparative research design to create a cross-cultural conceptual framework. The study used a sequential quantitative-qualitative analysis with a comparative design that included 750 teachers. Cross-cultural differences were found in the research sample regarding teachers’ self-perceived role in socialising emotion: specifically, the teachers’ openness to emotional expression in the classroom, and what social and emotional aptitudes were more likely to be included as part of SEE provision. More variation was found in these variables internationally compared to intranationally. A conceptual framework using two dimensions was created in order to aid future cross-cultural research regarding SEE provision and the study of emotional rules in the teaching profession: the Ideal Affect (likelihood of suppressing rather than expressing emotion) and the Ideal Self (likelihood of developing skills for independence versus interdependence).

So many of the bad uses of computing - surveillance capital, the centralized cloud, the NSA, etc - could all come under the general heading of "oppression".

they'll be extinguished, whoever they are.
