Information colonialogy and the perpetuation of inequality

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

The culture of information colonialogy perpetuates and exaggerates inequalities by exploitative labour practices (Hamann & Bertels, 2018).  Hamann and Bertels (2018) analyze the contribution of employers in influencing the government and maintaining exploitative labour practices to create and perpetuate inequality.  The perpetuation of inequalities spreads to the ecological environment (Conversi, 2017).  Conversi (2017) describes how corporate interests deny climate change through manipulation of the media and censorship.  Akinsulore and Akinsulore (2021) suggest public participation in environmental decision making to ensure the sustainability of mining sectors.
