Benjamin Boyce was a student at The Evergreen State College as it melted down, thanks to the applications of critical race Theory on campus. There, not only did he have a first-person view of the mayhem the campus descended into as it happened, he was responsible for filming and documenting a great deal of the footage that has since come to light and found a home in documentaries. Ever since, he has been on a quest to further understand what happened at Evergreen and to document it in full, not to mention similar issues as they crop up in the surrounding Washington state communities.
Here, James Lindsay sits down with Benjamin for the second time (first conversation here) to discuss even more about Critical Social Justice and, in particular, the birth of New Discourses.
Their conversation ranges fairly widely, through the relevant history, philosophy, ideas, and activism that characterize Critical Social Justice and create a need for New Discourses. They put particular attention on the importance of understanding the language used by the Critical Social Justice ideology and thus the need for the creation of New Discourse’s Translations from the Wokish: A Plain-Language Encyclopedia of Social Justice Terminology. (And, at the end, James gives away some of his increasingly famous cocktail-making secrets!)
Join them here for a spirited and witty conversation about Critical Social Justice and the need for clearer, more honest conversations on pressing issues than that ideology allows.
