As one spends more and more time in the Critical Social Justice (Woke) literature, it becomes increasingly clear that this stuff is not meant to make a person mentally and emotionally well-adjusted. In fact, at this point, I think it’s the opposite, and I think I can back it up. Drawing from various examples in the neo-Marxist and Critical Pedagogy literature, in this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I make the case that Wokeness is applied psychopathology. That is, the point of a Critical Theory is to induce and groom psychopathologies that the activists can then manipulate to achieve their ends. Join me for a rather daring exploration of this idea.
