You're assuming that all of us have privilege.
Carl Schaeffer- you just used yours.
This sentiment is one of the nuances that I always appreciate about your work. A lot of people associate "privilege" with WHITE privilege, without realizing that there are many different kinds of privilege and oppression. You always acknowledge that you have a little of both, as do all of us.
Education, even at its most basic level, is a privilege for a huge proportion of the world's population. For a surprisingly large percentage, it is an impossible dream. I am privileged to be able to read and write. I can't remember a time when I could not read (I'm told I started to read for myself at age 3). Without books, my life would be a wasteland.
