Benjamin Boyce hosts a boisterous chat with James Lindsay and Mike Nayna about the issues of critical race theory, social justice, and cancel culture. Is America experiencing another Evergreen State College-like incident on a national scale? Does this critical movement represent the unprecedented proselytization of a new religion? The panel explores these questions and more in this enlightening discussion.
These two guys are the f****** bomb…
I completely agree with the observation made in this video that the net effect of all of this is that white people are going to go “fuck it, we better start playing to win.” It’s already happening. White people are waking up and realizing that they are new group to hate, the scapegoats for everything, and that everything is being blameshifted onto us. We are being held accountable for crimes we did not commit.
The idea behind the developing movement “we better strengthen what remains” and “time to look out for ourselves.” If we do not stand up for ourselves, and stand against this vile ideology, our children are going to grow up in a world in which they can literally be physically assaulted, verbally attacked, emotionally abused, and psychologically programmed for their own self-destruction. Forget about there ever being any “safe space” for a white person. There is no where to run, no where to hand…. that only leaves stand and fight.
So either all races join together to resist this and push back together….. or…. you have just turned every white person into a redneck with a gun.
Whether or not western civilization even survives long enough before it gets to that point is debatable. This ideology is so destructive it can tear us down a few years and is tearing us apart even as we speak.
Isn’t intersectionality modern day apartheid? Segregating all people in different groups and treat the groups differently according to what ever rules du jour… Somehow I think that is illegal everywhere nowadays…
RE: Hot takes. What everyone ignores is that even 2M retweets, a BIG number, is only 5% of Twitter’s monthly users. We are letting ourselves get rolled by a tiny but vocal minority.
We all know those stats, the question is: why does everybody play along?
Boyce is wrong about all the woke stuff making some people more “nice.” They may look like that at first, but they will be full of resentment, guilt, or both, and which will eventually manifest itself in a nasty way.
I work with a number of Chinese immigrants in my company. Some are younger, some are older. The conversations I’ve had with them regarding the 60s/70s (when some of them grew up) are fascinating.
One thing which is pertinent to this conversation has to do with education. It was abolished in China from ~’65 to ~’75 since it meant that some can get ahead where others cannot. The ones who were in the middle of university when the law hit were just given their degrees (if I recall correctly) with A’s in all their subjects. The effect that this had was that employers would not hire anyone who graduated between ’65 and ’75 since their degree meant diddly squat.
I may be misremembering the exact “grandfathering in” of what was done for those students, but it was definitely something where they easily got A’s without doing the work. If you want the students in actual productive fields of study to join their brethren in the liberal arts with regard to the demand for their skills amongst employers, giving everyone A’s is an excellent way to go about it.
Boyce’s Evergreen documentary on YouTube is a must see, even though it is painful to watch.
Boyce should research Lionel Shriver and her views on publishing companies using content gate keepers and reviewers for cultural sensitivity edits. There is a term for the cultural sensitivity reviewers but it is slipping my memory at the moment.
Political Commisar. Maybe not exactly the same word your looking for, but in my mind essentially a word that means the same thing.
