The discourse of a neo-liberal ideology founded on a notion of universal truth and the values or a western tradition have been enshrined in a persistent colonisation of educational institutions and their practices. Global meaning has abused anthological knowledges and ecologies forcing notions of education as pedagogy and curriculum onto communities which do nothing to enable flourish but attempt to develop a form a sanction well-being which is contra to emancipation, self-respect and community support. This colonisation is managed through access to technological connectivity as an ameliorator of change through-narrative of wealth and power. As such the post-modern is a simulacrum for a hidden continuity of privilege that remerges in the present.
