    The Strange Death of the University, Part 4: The Strange Death of Knowledge The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 100 (28 November 2022) In this fourth and final episode of the series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through the third chapter of this manipulative UNESCO document. (Chapters four and five are left as homework!) This chapter features one of the most dangerous and manipulative concepts to come out of the Woke Marxist movement, not least thanks to the work done by Paulo Freire: other ways of knowing. In this chapter, you can hear how the “ways of knowing” in the natural sciences have to be adjusted, modified, and made pluralistic alongside activism, the arts, humanities, and the social sciences, especially feminism and “Indigeneity” in service to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030. All knowledge must serve the new regime, and all knowing systems have to be redesigned to serve its agendas. This is truly the death of the university in the making, and it is a strange death from within, indeed. Join James to hear about how truth is to be replaced by agenda throughout what used to be deserving of being called universities. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-4:8 @newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-4:8

    The Strange Death of the University, Part 3: The Strange Death of Science The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 99 (14 November 2022) In this third episode of the series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through the second chapter of this manipulative UNESCO document. In this chapter, the concepts of “multidisciplinarity,” “interdisciplinarity,” and “transdisciplinarity” are forwarded with the clear intention of creating a pretext for bringing activists and activism from the arts, humanities, and social sciences into positions of authority over the natural sciences. Science cannot survive this long-sought-after push by activism into its domain, and it will usher in nothing less than a new era of “sustainable” Lysenkoism. Join James to hear about how universities themselves will be turned into the vehicles that ultimately kill science, at least in the West, and to hear a rousing call to scientists and academics that this, in fact, is their hill to die on. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-3:e @newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-3:e

    The Strange Death of the University, Part 2: A New Sensibility The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 96 (10 October 2022) In this episode of the series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through the first chapter, the introduction, to this manipulative UNESCO document. Sustainability is made out clearly to be a cult-religious concept, a new theological object to bind and orient the university so that the Neo-Communist agenda can be accomplished through it. Sustainability will come to guide how institutions think, operate, research, and teach, and they will serve as beacons for this new faith to the communities around them. Sustainability is to become our “New Sensibility,” just like Herbert Marcuse called for in the second chapter of his 1969 Essay on Liberation. Sustainability as the tyranny of the 21st century is to become the mode and model for all institutions of higher education, including colleges, universities, seminaries, and more. Join James to hear about how the universities are to be transformed into the cathedrals of this new backwards cult religion. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-2:9 @newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,-2:9

    The Strange Death of the University, Part 1: The Red Thread The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 95 (03 October 2022) In this first episode of the series, Lindsay goes through the preliminary materials, including a foreword that explicitly grounds the entire purpose of the document in the work of the Critical Marxist Herbert Marcuse. “Transformation is the red thread running through all the Sustainable Development Goals,” we’re told in the first sentence of the foreword. The goal in this executive summary is clear. The university must be transformed. It must be made into a think tank that services the UN 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals meant to achieve it. All institutions of higher education, colleges, universities, seminaries, and beyond, must be bound and oriented in this one particular Neo-Communist direction. They must abandon their missions and take up the core value of sustainability, on the UN’s agenda-driven terms. They must install “sustainability officers” and refuse to engage in any activity that supports “non-sustainable” practices. Join James and be shocked at what the United Nations thinks it can coerce the world’s colleges into doing. https://odysee.com/@newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,:b @newdiscourses:9/the-strange-death-of-the-university,:b

    The Strange Death of the University We all know academia is in trouble. In fact, we’re not even sure it can be saved. To put it simply, the university is dying. To be sure, it’s a strange death, however, because the university is in some sense going back to its roots, returning to being theological seminaries, though in a completely new religion. That religion is the transformative religion of Dialectical Leftism, and its materialist watchword in the 21st century is “Sustainability.” In this New Discourses Podcast series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through a 2022 UNESCO book, Knowledge-driven Actions: Transforming Higher Education for Global Sustainability, that calls upon all “higher education institutions” to transform themselves so that they align, promote, and help complete the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a part of the 2030 Agenda.

    I did not say it was insignificant ... ... nor did I suggest it ought to be done for "light and transient causes". I said the Constitution is an amoral instrument whose adminstrivial rules should never be granted the weight of moral imperatives. (That there are corrupt and/or authoritarian power-seekers on the right who would seek to exploit this to their advantage does not falsify it.) The observance of such rules should be strictly prudential - and when it stops being prudential, those rules should stop being observed (grade-school civics-class fairy tales to the contrary notwithstanding). If Americans derive their sense of identity and "what it means to be an American" from pretending otherwise, then so much the worse for America. (That would certainly explain a lot about how it got where it is.)

    Oh, I have no doubt there are many politicians and bureaucrats who might be doing so (whether motivated by earnest conviction, mere necessity, cynical public performance, or what-have-you) - especially from among their lower echelons. But I am deeply skeptical there are many doing so regularly for 2.5 hours a day, especially from among the ranks of national cabinet ministers or other such august personages (i.e., the likes of Al Gore or John Kerry - or Clement Beaune).

    That is as it ought to be. The Constitution is just a set of rules concerning how the over-arching federal government is supposed to be arranged and how it is supposed to operate. That's it. That's all it is. Nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else. There should be nothing inherently "moral" about it, and so there should be nothing inherently "immoral" about abrogating it. Unfortunately, many people have a strong tendency to conflate the so-called "Bill of Rights" with the Constitution - but the former was just an afterthought tacked on as a sop to skeptics, and did little to ameliorate the actual purpose of the latter, which was to concentrate more power in the hands of fewer people.

    Not at all. The proposal on the table isn’t simply to respond to violent attack with deffensive violence. That would be fine. But what’s being proposed is to respond to an opponent's unprincipled behavior by compromising or abandoning one’s own principles, to use their own tactics against them is how it’s usually phrased. But no matter how you phrase it or try to pretty it up or justify it, it ammounts to abandoning principle in favor of expediency. You know, the very kind of thing the so-called “liberty movement” is constantly decrying in their opponents. The worst part is that it’s completely unneccessary. There are better ways of achieving the goal, if the goal truly is liberty, that don’t require one to compromise or abandon even the tiniest fraction of their principles.

    I don't really care, dude. I've lost interest in this... haven't you? Whatever... it was a topic for an evening, and now it's boring. Here - I'll give you this: "I think I understand what you're saying" (even though I really don't, and it still has a sense of "TEH DIRTY JEWZ" to me, but I'm too tired to bother at this point).

    It absolutely IS a select few Jewish people. Even if there were tens of thousands of *powerful* media/banking positions and ALL of them were occupied by Jewish people, those tens of thousands of Jewish people comprise a very small minority of the Jewish people in this country. Thus to say that "THE JEWS" control media/banking is - again - illogical, imprecise, and a loaded phrase based on it's historic usage. Because you, some random person, have decided that is *dumb* doesn't make it less so in the common understanding of the phrase, I'm afraid. As I was saying... And yes, there is a certain amount of insult when people use the phrase "THE JEWS" in the context in which you're using it. And also again, feel free to use it. Also don't be surprised when people make assumptions based on you using it. That's just the way language works.

    And we're going to pretend that there is no historical context here? That's how you're going to try to weasel out of your half-assed argument? Like everyone is just ignoring the context? Fuck's sake dude... this is absurd.

    There are a TON of people of Irish background in policing. A LOT of them have made it to the upper echelons of police departments, especially in major metropolitan areas. It is more than fair to say that there are a LOT of Irish people in police departments, probably as many relatively to the number of Jewish people in media and banking. It would make as much sense to say, "THE IRISH run the police departments" as it does to say, "THE JEWS run banking and media." You know what, you're just fucking with me, because I don't believe you're actually this blinkered.

    Can you not read? Are you stupid or something? I said from MY VERY FIRST POST that there is a clear difference between saying, "THE JEWS run media and banking", and, "There are a lot of Jewish people in media and banking". At NO POINT have I denied that there are a lot of Jewish people who work in media and banking. None. What's your problem, dude? How can you NOT understand that there is a HUGE difference between those two phrases, especially how the first one "TEH JEWZ!!!" has been used, historically? Are you living under a rock or something, or are you just purposefully being obtuse?

    Cool do that. Then after that, collect a list of all the Irish people who've served as cops in this country so we can justify using phrases like, "the Irish are a bunch of cops". And then do the Italians and the mafia. And then do the Indians and the convenience store clerks. You're clinging to this point is hilarious. Seriously. Keep going. THE JEWS run media and banking! THE IRISH run the police departments! THE ITALIANS are all mobbed up!
