“Stop Hiring College Graduates” with James Lindsay

Written by Deborah Fillman

About the guest

If the title of this stream alarms you, good. You should be alarmed, especially if you’re one of the millions of parents who think the purpose of a K12 education is to prepare your children to attend college, because you also believe a college degree is essential to getting hired at a so-called “good” job, or possibly any job at all.

Inspired by his several tweets on this subject in recent weeks, I’ve invited Dr. James Lindsay to discuss what’s going on in America’s institutions of “higher” learning, and why he’s giving what seems like “extreme” advice to employers everywhere.

An American-born author, mathematician, and professional troublemaker, Dr. James Lindsay has written six books spanning a range of subjects including religion, the philosophy of science and postmodern theory. He is a leading expert on Critical Race Theory, which leads him to reject it completely. He is the founder of New Discourses and currently promoting his new book “Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody,” which is currently being translated into more than fifteen languages.

The Occult & New Age Origins of SEL

Dr. James Lindsay joins me to discuss his research into the origin story of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). For those who are unfamiliar with SEL, it is currently a multi-billion-dollar business and government initiative, not just in the US, but globally. It is now in every school district, and in every subject area, and its proponents make grand claims about how it will “transform” not just our children, and our system of education, but our world. James wondered how it aims to do this, and more importantly, why, and ended up back at square one, asking “WTF is SEL” in the first place, because what we’re being told it is, and what it actually is, appear to be very different!
