Dr. Burke suggests that there are many vested interests in manipulating what knowledge, skills, and attitudes future generations acquire and that they are not all driven by altruism and inclusivity. Nationalism, religion, culture, predatory capitalism, nepotism, digital authoritarianism, corporatism, militarism, and racism all create a poisonous pedagogy. This book offers some convincing and familiar examples of just how this happens. Each of these potential enemies of society and education is based on human stories and myths, invented and communicated to our societies explicitly through myth/knowledge transfer and implicitly and systemically through our behaviors within those societies’ including our education systems. Furthermore, the ability to communicate these myths has grown exponentially with the world-wide-web and antisocial media platforms.
