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.
Why did I pick such a shitty title?
- 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 empires on aggrievement: people seeking something/someone to justify their failure, allay their fears, confirm their suspicion and help them throw rocks at their enemies.
-SJWs are discrediting legitimate causes and projects; the damage they're inflicting is significant, producing hostility towards groups they claim to represent
- "no justice, no peace" - that's actually the goal - when one (supposed or legitimate) injustice is remedied, they'll continue to move on to increasingly contrived causes
- the progressive stack - yikes
- how to we make progress and grow as individuals? we usually have to experience some discomfort
- how do we grow as intellectuals? usually through experience of some amount of discord and debate
