    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 15: Paulo Freire's Perpetual Cultural Revolution The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 83 (04 July 2022) This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation, and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here. In the previous two parts, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the sixth chapter of that book, wherein we see how Freire Marxified education itself and explained the groomer “dialogical” model. The previous parts of this series, covering the earlier chapters of the book can be found here, here, here, here, and here . In this episode, James takes up the seventh chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire outlines the need for and process of “conscientization.” That is, in this chapter, Freire makes it clear that the neo-Marxist consciousness-raising process is what education is actually about. Join him to understand that for Freire, education is about becoming a Marxist and a radical explicitly in the mold of revolutionary guerrillas like Che Guevara. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/paulo-freire's-perpetual-cultural:1 paulo-freire%27s-perpetual-cultural/1d8ab275b0966eb310d972c55639d7fd4f7fb5ba

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 14: Woke Private Schools and the Elite Leninist Vanguard The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 78 (30 May 2022) We spend a lot of time talking about the Woke Marxification of North America’s public schools, but what about private schools? As many who send their kids there can tell you, they’re just as Woke, if not Woker. Critical Education Theorists (Critical Pedagogs) have not ignored private schools, just like they haven’t ignored elite private universities that these schools primarily service, but how do they really think about them? In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads through a recent academic paper regarding bringing Freirean and Leninist Critical Pedagogy into NAIS-certified private schools, and what is written by Susannah Livingston, recent graduate of GCAS (Global Centre for Advanced Studies and teacher at an expensive private school in New York City, an explicitly neo-Marxist certification mill) is shocking. Join him to learn what elite parents are paying $40,000, sometimes $50,000 a year to subject their children to. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/woke-private-schools-and-the-elite:b woke-private-schools-and-the-elite/bdaa8337d1024c90925f3450c4f7237ddfea2877

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 13: What Is Racial Literacy? The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 77 (23 May 2022) A common term of art in the current educational milieu is racial literacy. In fact, here is the giant and influential educational company Pollyanna, Inc., talking about how central racial literacy is to their K-8 education programs. What is racial literacy, though? As you will not be surprised to learn, it is the racial repackaging of Marxist education Theorist Paulo Freire’s critical literacy model using Race Marxism (Critical Race Theory) in place of Critical Marxism (Critical Theory, or neo-Marxism). In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay explores racial literacy in the words of two of its own scholars, making clear how shoddy their so-called “research” really is, at bottom, and that, in fact, “racial literacy” means the priority of the Race Marxification of education, which merely takes Freire’s Marxist education project (Critical Pedagogy) one step further. Join him to gain the confidence you need to understand this concept and push back against it when you see it in your kids’ schools. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/what-is-racial-literacy:4 what-is-racial-literacy/44347ca73233bc692fe50d00df6452f98e57333a

    But the main point is that there is Western pressure on Ukraine politics which drives the dispute and as a consequence there were zero negotiations? Does anyone believe Ukraine devoid of western influence and assistance and isolated would not have come to the negotiation table years ago? This is a direct consequence of NATO. Mearsheimer has a great take on this.

    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.

    Chancellor von Bismarck
    President von Hindenburg

    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.

What has it to do with politics? Everything. Politicians piss us off, then try to misdirect our anger 'across the aisle' to people who are fundamentally exactly the same, but wear a different party label. The game is age old, but still works.

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
