Abstract

How Can We Live Freer? I examine existing theories to refocus and support educators to avoid victimizing ourselves in our current age of excessive surveillance. Psychologist Dr. Victor Frankl, a Holocaust survivor and author and practitioner of his notion of spirituality and self- actualization discovered while a concentration camp prisoner. I revisit other scholars to support ourselves to remain free within a presently difficult space: The Will To Meaning; To Examine; and To Tarry and Adopt Nonviolence. The use of scholarship is key for educators that we might resist the urge to console ourselves in what remains an inconsolable place.
