    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 19: Paulo Freire and the Critical Theft of Education The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 88 (09 August 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. In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the eighth chapter of that book, in which Freire describes “The Process of Political Literacy” and outlines a sweeping program for education as a means to remake Man himself. The previous parts of this series, covering the earlier chapters of the book can be found here, here, here, here,] here, here, and here . In this episode, James takes up the ninth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire describes what he calls “Humanistic Education,” as that term is meant by Karl Marx Building on the themes of the previous two chapters (education for conscientization and education as a process of political literacy ), this chapter clarifies how Paulo Freire enabled the theft of education from all potential learners for the purposes of Marxism. It’s an incredible crime against humanity. Join him to understand how Freire enabled the theft of education from our society and our children. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/paulo-freire-and-the-critical-theft-of:0 paulo-freire-and-the-critical-theft-of/0e136fc3d849eb14d96b6e8b775ef7acfb226758

    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 18: Critical Education Violates the First Amendment The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 87 (01 August 2022) Critical Pedagogy in our public schools unambiguously violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The reason is simple. As Critical Pedagogues themselves say, it has ambitions that can only be framed in religious terms, describes a fundamental concept of man and the world, and gives rise to duties of conscience. According to well-established First Amendment law in the United States, that violates the Establishment Clause. The argument is simple. The conception of man and the world it forwards is not the self-evident base of liberal society, which is by definition secular in this way; it is otherwise. It is the Hegelian-Marxist conception of a world that is transformed into its intended utopian state (literally, ďthe Kingdom of God on EarthĒ) by the morally obligated and willful activity of man undertaken with a specific belief, intention, and set of practices. It is a world that demands to be transformed into its ideal state by specific means in accordance with specific beliefs about its organization and operation with ďconscientizedĒ man as its intentional transformer. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of the New Discourses Podcast where he makes the argument, neat as neat. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/critical-education-violates-the-first:0 critical-education-violates-the-first/01242723c201418771440466655b512b7066a0f1

    https://twitter.com/ANeighborChoice/status/1557507605060530176 1:13:40 : interview preface 1:14:50 : McAdams interview Tucker Goodrich on Insulin Resistance, Daniel McAdams on the Return of Ron Paul (Audio) David Gornoski opens the show by commenting on how the FBI is only concerned with protecting the status quo. Also in the show, Tucker Goodrich calls in to talk about the real cause of diabetes and sensitivity to insulin. Is there any sign that DC's strong-arm tactics are paying off? What do we make of the resurgence of Ron Paul's ideas among conservatives of all stripes? Did Nancy Pelosi serve American interests in her visit to Taiwan? Joining David Gornoski to answer these questions and more is Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Liberty Report.

    So, because he wants revenge Trump is automatically the right guy to lead us all to liberty? THIS peurile bullshit is the current level of political strategy and discourse in this country? A few more years of this blowhard in the spotlight and otherwise intelligent people will be beating their chests, grunting and flinging feces at each other. And some people actually believe that Trump has advanced the cause of liberty in some way? SMGDH

    Turns out that treating your audience, your customers, you know, the people who PAY you and enable you to live the comfortable lifestyle that you do live, with some modicum of dignity and respect works much better to attract them than does,insulting or berating them and trying to shove a political agenda down their throats against their will. Who would have thought?

    Considered purely from the standpoint of practical "Machiavellian" politics, they ought to "weaponize the department" against their opponents. But they won't, for whatever reasons. The Democrats and the left have no such compunctions, however. This is why the Republicans at the federal level are worse than useless - if anything, they are actually an outright liability.

    Because THEY want to do those things! Here's the thing about power... They will always fight amongst themselves for power. But NONE of them want to give it up. None of them want to reduce the power over other people - they just want to control it. Trump was and is unpredictable in how he wields power - that's a problem for the people whose job it is to manage that power. But make no mistake, Trump never had any intention of reducing that power - only in wielding it himself. I like that he makes the left insane - it feels good. And rightly so. But he will NEVER be what his supporters hope he is.

    That's not how word of mouth spreads. Just as Trump's printing is why Biden had inflation from the moment he hit office (no, he hasn't done a damned thing to stop it), our exposing the sheer hutzpah of the propaganda machine literally made Trump's Tweet Factory possible. It would not have worked before we did that. Not that the credit where due really matters. Except the usual way to reprogram cult members so they can be useful members of society is to show them their god is merely a man after all.

    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.

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
