Jordan Peterson explains in this Prager U video how post-modernism dominates the academy. Parents are funding the indoctrination of their own children into Leftism. The academy seeks nothing less than the total destruction of Western civilisation.
Peterson explains: ‘It’s now possible to complete an English degree and never encounter Shakespeare – one of those dead white males whose works underlie our “society of oppression”. To understand and oppose the post-modernists, the ideas by which they orient themselves must be clearly identified.
‘First is their new unholy trinity of diversity, equity and inclusion. Diversity is defined not by opinion, but by race, ethnicity or sexual identity; equity is no longer the laudable goal of equality of opportunity, but the insistence on equality of outcome, and inclusion is the use of identity-based quotas to attain this misconceived state of equity.
‘All the classic rights of the West are to be considered secondary to these new values. Take, for example, freedom of speech – the very pillar of democracy. The post-modernists refuse to believe that people of good will can exchange ideas and reach consensus.’
Post-modernism is essentially warmed-up Marxism. Peterson reminds us that it must be consigned to the dustbin of history.
