Example text

It’s kind of gone. Love, real knowledge, I had that. Used to have that. After many years of reflection, he senses that that he was a certain type of prisoner (indoctrinated into the western, middle class, Protestant, Eurocentric schooling cave), finally freed in some respects at least, by escaping the ideological darkness that he frames as the Horatio Alger narrative of upward social class mobility by way of the scholarship/schooling system.
