Fisher discussed the ways that consciousness-raising "may make us uncomfortable and if faced alone, can lead to helpless rage or shame and a profound sense of powerlessness." On the other hand creating a space which only allows "safe" ideas is sterile and does not push people far enough out of their comfort zone to encourage what Fisher calls a "shift in attention."
How can we create classrooms which are characterized by what Fisher calls "Nonjudgmentalness" while cultivating political judgment and shifts in attention?
(I'm especially interested in how to discuss privilege without alienating the privileged group to the point that they disengage. Also how can we avoid what Fisher identifies as " the common assumption that politics required a single analysis and the political talk meant a competition among activists about whose analysis was correct?")
