Woke culture continues to become ever-more relevant to people in all walks of life, and this led to a recent BBC audio-documentary featuring feminist authort Helen Lewis and produced by Craig Templeton Smith, “The Roots of ‘Woke’ Culture.”
James Lindsay sits down with high school teacher Will Reusch to talk about an issue of far more importance than the attention it is currently getting: the deep encroachment of Critical Social Justice Theory and activism into our primary and secondary education programs.
Something has gone wrong in the university—especially in certain fields within the humanities. Scholarship based less upon finding truth and more upon attending to social grievances has become firmly established.
There is much that should be said about the ways in which the dominant Social Justice ideology has negative impacts upon the university, free expression, academic freedom and, especially, the sciences.
