One thought on “Oprah, Neoliberal (HUM415)

  1. Ana Doria-Quesada

    Very good article with great insights. I get the author’s point about how Oprah’s stories encourage adaptation to social constructs and not changing those constructs. However, I believe that there is no way to influence change in the world unless change comes from within. “Men go crazy in congregations but they only get better one by one” comes to mind. I think her message is valid but it needs a next step. Once you become empowered by “loving yourself”, and accepting who you are, you have to take that power out into the social environment you find yourself in, looking at what is holding you back and how you can change it.
