Critical race theory is not a new ideology but a repackaging of classic Marxism with race substituted for economic class.
Elizabeth: I'm amazed that you managed to get this published in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons as I have gotten the impression that most of the medical community had been absorbed into Woke Borg (via Rufo & others). What sort of response did you get from readers in that journal?
Thanks for the brief summary of Lindsay's book. Lindsay is true leader in the anti-Woke fight. But I'm concerned that he is also a leader in the New Atheist movement. along with Peter Boghossian another eager and able anti-Wokers. While these & others like them are currently great allies in the Anti-woke movement, they seem to be unlikely happy , cooperative long term bedfellows with Christians. I'm having trouble seeing how that works in the long run and wonder if they will turn on the Christian anti-woke group as some point. I pray they will not become Nebachenzars & give Christians a "choice" between bowing down or going to the fiery furnace of public scorn & cancellation at a later time.
It seems to me that the idea of separation of church and state ultimately led to the secular Marxist government we currently are suffering under. It was heavily promoted in the 19th century by Protestants who were very worried about the influx of Catholics from other countries into the United States and that it would result in the Catholic Church becoming too influential in politics. They derided Catholics as "papists" and as a result of their anti-Catholic zeal ended up eliminating all Christian influence in government by trying to eliminate all prayer in legislative sessions, removing the Bible from government schools and of course denying any public money to Catholic schools but trying to preserve it for the Protestant schools which ultimately failed. The removal of God from politics has resulted in an atheistic, demonic, anti-God form of government which has now resulted in the acceptance of all manner of sin and perversion and to the persecution of Christians and to the FBI labeling traditional Catholics as terrorists per their own memos. There should NOT be a separation of church and state. NO, God's commands should always be an influence on the laws and the way those laws are applied to the governed. You can call them "natural laws" if you don't like the idea of naming God, but ultimately they are from God who is their origin.
It seems that "racism", as it is imagined by Leftists is what Leftists call a "conspiracy theory". A theory about a collusion that does not really exist.
The only part of the essay that I take issue with is:
"The civil rights movement grew out of the ideas of democracy that include equality, liberty, universal human rights, the right to private property, capitalism, limited government, separation of the church and state, freedom of religion and freedom of speech."
My rule is: Question Everything, that the Leftist media-academia ever told you. The civil rights movement of the 1960s was definitely NOT what the media-academia report it to have been.
