    Unfortunately, this is bleeding over into private schools as well. The institutions are definitely pushing it hard, but we gotta remember that these institutions are run by people. And right now, the people have lost their damned minds. Even the ones who sense something is wrong with all this are afraid to speak up for fear of being labeled as a racist. When, in fact, those pushing these types of things couldn't be more racist! This goes back to "intellectual" pursuits vs. real world concrete pursuits. We've fooled generations of people into thinking they can pursue intellectualism lazily. So you get people attracted to the fields like education, journalism, law, politics, or the arts, without the empirical academic rigor that those fields should entail. And they're safe because unlike real-world pursuits, if they produce shoddy products, they pay no price for being wrong. Whereas, if you or I mess up, your employer or customer will know pretty quickly. What's worse, is that they're ALL lazy now and don't even realize it. Something like 95% of people in those fields, not only think in a similar way, but they think they're right and you're too stupid to understand how smart they are!

    Don't forget to add that this meme has been "fact-checked" and deemed to be misleading. https://leadstories.com/hoax-alert/2021/03/fact-check-dr-seuss-enterprises-did-not-cancel-publication-of-the-cat-in-the-hat.html Never mind that this fact check is for a different meme of similar content - they still applied it to this meme. Never mind that the fact check misses the entire point of the meme. Never mind that the fact check doesn't mention that WAP was named NPR's song of the year in a flattering piece about how in spite of the bad in 2020, it gave us some really great music! Never mind that neither the pulling of Dr. Seuss books, nor the promotion of WAP was based on demand. (Those books still sell and WAP wasn't even in the top 20 songs sold or streamed in 2020) Another thing I'm seeing is that there's a perception is that this is the free market in action. A company decided to stop selling their books out of their moral concern; they weren't "forced" to stop selling them. And WAP was a hit song because people like it.

    Aufheben der Dr. Seuss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPYieRhLATw The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 23 Aufheben is a German word that, in Critical Theory, means to "abolish" or to "negate" in the way that Critical Theorists do. It's a somewhat complicated term in that it means both to abolish and to keep or to keep safe, and the Critical Theory taps into the so-called dialectical process to attempt to use aufheben to tear apart and, as the Marxists translated it, "sublate" whatever cultural artifact they are targeting onto a "higher" level of understanding, namely the one that empowers Critical Theorists and induces misery in everyone else. This process was widely pushed by the Critical Theorists of the Frankfurt School under a doctrine of Aufheben der Kultur ("abolishment of culture"), and it continues in the Woke movement today. One of the latest big targets of Aufheben der Kultur is Dr. Seuss and his wide body of popular children's literature. Why? Because of its success. Seuss becomes a cultural anchor point for hundreds of millions of children and adults, and by tainting Seuss, his legacy, and your own memories of him with accusations of racism and "harm," they can abolish that shared cultural anchor and make more room to advance their own agenda, in which every text is "decolonized" and geared to indoctrinate you and your children into Critical Theory, especially Critical Race Theory. Join James Lindsay in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast to dig into the Critical Dr Seuss academic literature to see where this Aufheben der Dr Seuss comes from and how it works.

    I was posting videos of Viva Frei's analysis of the Parler v. Amazon case in this thread, but it makes more sense to put them in the "Amazon removes hosting for Parler" thread. I've posted the most recent update (as of 03 March 2021) to that thread (here: Parler vs. Amazon "Voluntary Dismissal"?

    Also, the cadre of activists is much larger today than it was then. At the time, Critical Theory was securing its position in the universities, and hadn't yet captured K-12 education, corporate HR & marketing departments, and government entities & NGOs (as it has now).

    As I recall, the LGBWHATEVER activist crowd got pissed off at The Silence of the Lambs way back when it first came out, too (especially when it was nominated for and won so many Oscars). They denounced Jonathan Demme (the director), called for boycotts, etc. No way would the movie ever get made today - not without significant changes. Which goes to show that all this sort of thing is not just coming out of nowhere - it's been brewing for literally decades now. It's just now coming to a continuous, rolling boil.

    Really?? And how do you know that? Is there a minimum effort that goes along with that? Are employees required by law to provide at least $20 of value each hour to their employer? Don't you think it's rather arrogant to think that you know better than each individual worker and employer what their value is worth to each other? And don't you think it's heartless to prevent those who are unable to provide $20 of value per hour, either through lack of skills or knowledge, the ability to at least make something while gaining those skills and knowledge?

    Think about how irrational that is. Should Captain Hook be removed from Peter Pan because it portrays handicapped people as evil? Hannibal Lecter was a middle-aged white guy - shall we consider it a commentary that middle-aged white guys are cannibals?? Emperor Palpatine was a decrepit old politician - does that mean all decrepit old politicians are the embodiment of the dark side?? Eh, maybe that last one is a bad example. The point is that "characters" by their very definition are distinctive to an individual.

    That is exactly the problem. The minds of kids (and everyone else) must be broken and reshaped so that they always look at everything through the lens of race, gender, or whatever other "intersectional" categories happen to be to the advantage of the Woke in terms of giving them more power and control.

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.

People are angry, but they are often in denial about it. They know they're angry, but they don't want to admit they're angry
