indicative quote


"[T]eaching today in Serbia means facing a generation that matured under the onslaught of a devastating state propaganda; and teaching participants in that generation to accept, as a meaningful political act, a citizenship which will inevitably burden them with heavy responsibility. Teaching critical thinking to ‘wounded’ subjects (Pulcini), bearing the burden of ‘wounded attachments’ (Brown) is oftentimes a very painful process.
… I believe that the upcoming generation can take up and hold this burden of responsibility (‘The heavier it is to carry the better please I shall be: for that burden is my freedom’ Sartre, 1943). It is my contention that this is the only way they can forge their own citizenship." Dasa Duhaček
