Critical Race Theory, Sex, God, and Dangerous Knowledge

HOW PUBLIC SCHOOLS BECOME THE BATTLEFIELD TO CONTROL THE CULTURAL NARRATIVE

McCarthyism…Then, Again, and Always

Like other social studies teachers, I was taken aback by the sudden onslaught against the evils of Critical Race Theory. I was only temporarily winded, however. The seemingly sudden campaign against Critical Race Theory is just one small episode in a larger series of battles to control public knowledge and the accepted narrative. Modern and contemporary public schooling can be looked at as ground zero in a battle between preserving a Traditionalist understanding of the nation and the perpetual incursions of Dangerous Knowledge that challenge these traditions.

This video addresses the Critical Race Theory debate directly, then moves into addressing the larger theme. In the end, it’s a debate between censorship and academic freedom. The Ghost of Joseph McCarthy is residing in the miasmic soul of Gov. Ron DeSantis.
