[FREE A/V] #491: Flashback – Our First Encounter With Social Justice

(Not a serious show; from the premium content archives) Only 50 people have ever heard the live pre-show for episode #368, but it is one of my favorite half-hours of School Sucks content ever. Osborne and I examine and discuss the University of New Hampshire's ill-fated "Unbiased Speech Guide." This was our first known encounter with the social justice movement in higher education, and you might find it interesting to compare our attitudes then to those expressed in numerous shows that followed in 2016 and 2017. Recorded on August 5th, 2015, this audio is the Pre-Show for [PODCAST] #368: Six-travaganza Live Show Highlights – “Memory Lane”.

[PODCAST] #475: When Antifa Attacks – University of Toronto

[CAMPUS CORRESPONDENCE #1] Geoffrey "Biffo" Liew returns to discuss the latest dust-up at University of Toronto, where Antifa protestors disrupted The Toronto Action Forum on Free Speech and Fiscal Policy. Biffo was one of the organizers of the event (working with Students In Support of Free Speech and Generation Screwed), which featured Rebel Media's Ezra Levant, Professor Jordan Peterson, Professor Janice Fiamengo and many others. Our conversation moves back and forth between Biffo's reporting on Antifa behavior at the college, and Peterson's warnings about social justice warring and the post-modern ideas that underlie it. Biffo is a University of Toronto student, the organizer of the now infamous University of Toronto Rally For Free Speech, and a longtime listener to the ...

[PODCAST] #463: SPEED AND POLITICS (Interlude – “Violence Is Lurking” – The Tragedy of Jordan Peterson)

A necessary detour in this series, after my discovery of Jordan Peterson. This presentation is a rant-esque monologue that hopefully becomes more calm and collected as it goes on, interspersed with relevant media clips. Thank you to everyone who sent me this video; it began a very educational week. Peterson's repeated warning that "violence is lurking" is the result of a combination of observations of the current discourse with four decades of experience studying and teaching about fascism and Marxism. What This Series Is About: Political thinking is often quick thinking. Thinking quickly is is an evolution-driven feature that was once necessary for our survival. But in a vastly more complex world than the one our species grew up in, ...

[PODCAST] #442: Never Justice, Never Peace – Higher Education’s Social Justice Infection

This is my conversation with Adam Allpow of the Voluntary Institute on how the Social Justice movement is further damaging higher education, in terms of culture, freedom and actual learning. I think it's important to stress the importance of treating people as individuals, but in order address a problem we have to recognize some patterns. Monologue: Why did I pick such a shitty title? Discussion: - Unique communication and generational challenges Millennials face - the back-story of SJWs? the theories of Paul Joseph Watson and Stefan Molyneux - The new highest values being taught: equality, diversity and inclusion - confusion about structural racism, scientific racism and racial liberalism - racial liberalism in higher ed - paternalist, white-supremacist, inperialist - Building ...
