I guess there are ignorant people who think that CRT means people are weak ? And that everything unequal or not equitable is always based in systemic injustice based on group/color of skin?
And these are university professors, prep school admin and university policy makers?
Who ever saw that as true?
From where is this dude getting his fuel??
The point has always been that people often do not see the system working in their lives to oppress them in their very identity; ￼in fact people deny it for the sake of idealist individualism.
The point of reason here is not that everything people are held back from is due to systemic injustice.
Seriously. Who the hell are we calling intellectual academics and supplying Dr. of philosophy titles to? For real; this is why just because people have letters after their name should not automatically have denoted to them a certain level of intelligence. ￼
I think very often people get caught up in their own little world for the sake of making a name for themselves and a salary in the name of social justice, or philosophy, whatever it is, and they lose touch with reality for the sake of the method of arguing Theory. And then they demand that reality must adhere to their theory, instead of the reverse.￼
In fact, a professor of American race studies who I think moved to Scotland, Tommy curry, makes a point in his book about how Kantian idealism pervades the American system in the way we currently call “whiteness”. ￼￼￼His point is that we need to drop this particular kind of individual idealism that it’s so linked to American democracy.￼ He draws a harder line than that, but I think his basic point about how people are so philosophically situated in blind theory, what I call idealism, is significant. ￼
But well his points, and indeed many peoples points are that we should change it somehow…
Maybe Badiou is corrrect; The most political move you can make is to stop engaging with politics. Because soon as you step in, you pretty much have to address yourself to idiots, and then by doing so you yourself become an idiot, but compensated for in the very post modern way of making a good living.
Maybe we should go back to the 19th century philosopher is that talk about authenticity. Maybe we should re-approach from that standpoint?
I’m sure it won’t happen.￼￼￼￼￼
…my point is that idealistic individualism is￼￼never gonna go away. ￼Kant was the prophet of modernity, kind of like a Jesus Christ of Christianity.￼
