His movement directed us through three pathways - Rebellious subjectivity, liberating tolerance and Conceptual thought in Criticality, from the perspectives of reassessing Marxism and in the practices of Adult Education. Marcuse, found the concept of socialism, to be the most important issue, which precipitated and gave rise to his movement. He felt the concept of socialism had taken Marx's theory and developed it to become more focussed on the development of the productive forces - Capitalisation and promotion of learning as a commodity, into another higher productive society which alienated and isolated individuals. Furthering his view, this could generate critical dispositions which he termed as rebellious subjectivity.to alleviate rebellious subjectivity, encouraging liberation of aesthetics from the demands of capitalism within classrooms, adult educators endeavour daily to create conducive learning environments - Ultimately inspiring liberation in a genuine socialist society today! Concurring with Brookfield's resonation to Marcuse's idea of repressive tolerance, diversity in education could be construed as the dominant culture appearing to be more open to the learner's voices, when in fact it is a refined way of reasserting its control over public discourse - remoulding the junior and leaving certificates and with the introduction of CAS (common awards system) in 2010, into adult education. We can, as adults be resistant to change but we also recognise manipulation. Thus surmising as adult educators, in the field, we need to critically be very carefully in our classrooms too!
