Unlike Professor Xavier’s mutants, the individual capacities that we possess to link together and contribute to an equal society is unrecognised. Our “ethnic differences”, presented as mutation-related hierarchies of capability through eugenics, do not enable us to behave in super-human ways. Indeed, there is no given difference save those that we construct. There are a few myths I have come across this year, and they all seem to linkup.
The myth of inequality (Dorling, 2010)
The myth of Barter (Graeber, 2012)
The myth of poverty (Escobar, 1995)
