THE SOCIAL JUSTICE TAKEOVER OF POST-SECONDARY
PUBLISHED: 12th January, 2015 | By Richard Heathen
It has been said by many that universities are “liberal indoctrination centers” or “left leaning”. The notion that colleges have a tendency to veer a bit left of center, or that their educators do isn't something I believe most would dispute. I've discussed this with people who self identify as progressive, or left leaning who did not dispute this assertion. Upon further research into this particular subject, I have come to the conclusion that we are were all quite wrong, so very very wrong... universities don't lean left, they are quite simply radical left, Cultural Marxism factories.
A quick google search of the term “Social Justice College Courses” reveals that not only are there “Social Justice Warriors” teaching at the college level, but students can take classes on Social Justice, and if they are so inclined they can even obtain a degree in social justice! Imagine my excitement upon discovering this.
If you're interested in a minor in “Social Justice”, Simmons Undergraduate College has programs for you described as such:
“The interdisciplinary minor in social justice is for students interested in "activism." Through an integration of academic study and community-based learning, students gain theoretical, historical, and practical backgrounds that will assist them in advancing progressive social change. The minor thus offers students an academic complement to social justice activist work, enabling them to explore and debate the meaning of "social justice," to grapple with the moral and ethical issues involved in undertaking social justice work, to engage in extensive community-based learning in urban communities of color, to understand and evaluate alternative perspectives and strategies pertaining to political and organizational social change, and to develop an informed action plan for furthering social change in a particular area of concern.”
Not only will the student learn how to expand their “social justice activist work” beyond Tumblr, but they can learn strategies to spread their ideological agenda to affect real world change. This seems to include organizing in most likely poorer urban areas populated by minorities for social engineering purposes. I wonder what would be taught in the “extensive community-based learning”, perhaps how the evil male white cis-heteropatriarchy is holding back minorities with capitalism. I bet that's it.
If a minor isn't enough and a student would really like to submerge themselves in social justice college work there is always the option of majoring in “Critical Theory – Social Justice” offered at schools like Occidental College:
Critical Theory - Social Justice (CTSJ) is fundamentally interdisciplinary, drawing on ideas from across traditional academic disciplines. "Critical" refers to various bodies of theory and method Marxism, psychoanalysis, the Frankfurt School, deconstruction, critical race studies, queer theory, feminist theory, postcolonial theory, and intersectionality that interrogate the essentialist assumptions that underlie social identities. "Social justice" refers to an extrajuridical concept of fairness that is focused on exposing and ending social inequalities. The aim of the Critical Theory - Social Justice department is to promote understanding of how categories such as "race", "sexual orientation," and "nationality" help people recognize and combat some injustices and hinder them from recognizing and combating others.
“Each CTSJ major chooses an emphasis in one of three areas: Critical Race Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Feminist/Queer Studies.”
Depending on which one of the CTSJ majors a student chooses they will be able to take classes like; “Whiteness”, a 200 level course. It's nice of them to offer a class about “whiteness” since they have many about black people, but I'm certain is chock full of white guilt, lessons in how much privilege you have based on how light or dark your skin tone is, and how to avoid being a “tool of the colonizer”.
For students who are particularly ambitious there is the option of attending Arizona State University and working toward an MA in Social Justice and Human Rights (MASJHR);
Our curriculum not only brings university expertise to pressing social issues, but also creates engaged interdisciplinary research teams of faculty and graduate students united by common concerns. Our faculty are known for their investigations of human trafficking and gender-based violence, nonprofit advocacy, social inequality, migration, social movements, health disparities, art activism, and social media advocacy. Our coursework examines these and related issues in contexts defined by multiple and intersecting forms of social identity and disadvantage, such as gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, and nationality. The program requires a grant-writing seminar to empower students with vital knowledge of fundraising as a tool of social change. The program also requires an internship, either locally or transnationally, where students typically work with survivors of violence or human trafficking, refugees, migrants, children, workers, or other advocates of social justice and human rights.
This superb degree appears to educate those who attend these classes on how to promote identity politics and collectivize human beings based on race, gender, sexuality, etc... because nothing screams “equality” like labelling people based on things they have no control over. Who are we kidding though? We know “social justice” has nothing to do with what it claims to be about anyway. Actually, scratch that. Social Justice is exactly what it now claims to be about; they aren't hiding their agenda anymore.
I know you're wondering what possible jobs opportunities there are for a person who graduated with a degree in Social Justice other than being a professional dick, but there are so many careers fields graduates of these “higher learning” institutions are eligible for. Law enforcement, community organization, social affairs, governmental positions, NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations), and the UN. Unlike their brethren who wasted their time and money obtaining a degree in Women's Studies, it appears there are more and more jobs opening up for the perpetual whiner.
It's awful enough that social justice is being treated as a legitimate area of study to obtain a degree in, but what if a student has no interest in taking any of these nonsensical courses? It appears that may just be too damn bad for them:
Part of the core requirements for Arts and Sciences majors include a course in each of three areas: Social Justice, Foreign Culture and Fine Arts. These courses must have been designated as such by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences prior to the semester they are offered.
Gonzaga University believes it's necessary for a student learn about “institutional and structural injustices” if they're seeking a Fine Arts or Science degree. So it's not only those of questionable mental health that may find themselves in a class about privilege checking and the evils of capitalism and white men. It's necessary that all young minds be moulded to believe the radical left's rhetoric. This is what is considered a core class in institutes of “learning” in the new millennium.
In Canada Social Justice is being injected into completely unrelated related fields such as criminology. The University of Manitoba's criminology program includes classes with names such as
*Crime and Social Justice Women,
*Crime and Social Justice
On the University of Windsors' website description of its' Criminology Program states:
"In their third and fourth years students will engage with a variety of specializations in criminology including: criminal justice, penology, law and social justice, policing, victimology, security, youth justice, and deviance."
Many Canadians complain that laws are enforced unevenly with aboriginal Canadians getting more leniency from police. One example can be found with "Idle No More" movement, when they enacted a series of roadblocks where they stopped traffic for extended periods of time, to bring attention to their issues. RCMP worked with the protestors as they blocked highways across Canada. I wonder how much help or support from the police we would get if non aboriginals decided that our political issues were important enough to block a highway? Do you think we would get handled with kid gloves and allowed to block a major highway or do you think we'd have our asses thrown into the snow and arrested? Without commenting on the validity of such protests one can still reflect on the question of whether certain groups get special treatment in certain circumstances. Could this double standard be an effect of the social justice ideological dogma investing every aspect of society?
This isn't something limited to only a few very radical colleges and schools, it's almost everywhere. Almost every college or university offers at the very least, courses on social justice, and a great many offer the degrees used as example in the article. Many people would ask why this matters, why worry that someone would want to spend their time learning about imaginary “problems” and being trained to be a misandrist, racist asshole. Normally that would be a good point, but Social Justice Warriors and Cultural Marxists don't have a tendency to keep to themselves. They're a loud minority and they want positions of power so they can social engineer society on a global scale. These are the same people who have managed to change policy on college campuses so that ridiculous things like “micro-aggressions” are taken seriously.
For those who say social justice is a 'fad', and will die out, I humbly suggest you do the math on what exactly will come of a generation being inundated with this propaganda and being “educated” in social justice courses.
As we see the radical left inserting it's philosophy through bully tactics into all forms of media and politics, we see now that they are creating an army. An army that will disperse itself into all corners of society, spreading it's rhetoric far and wide. These people will be police officers, politicians, government employees and teaching your children. They're gearing up for a war.
