Critical race theory in the classroom, hospital diversity officers instead of nurses, “preferred pronouns”, cancelling of those using traditional definitions of “women”, and other examples of the spread of this ridiculous, yet dangerous ideology. Latest at the top:

The woke cultural revolution is out of control, by Brendan O’Neill, Spiked: At a prestigious music school a highly accomplished composer was hounded from one of his own courses for showing his students Olivier playing Othello.…This is 21st-century Maoism, and any educational or cultural institution that goes along with it is signing its own death warrant.

The classroom culture warby Frank Furedi, The Critic: “My child has been told in a series of assemblies that she has white privilege”…what was once considered an American eccentricity has gone global, and Britain’s curriculum engineers are doing their utmost to make up for lost time.

Diversity and Division in the NHS – 2from grangry blog: At a time when the NHS is claiming to be desperately short of cash, NHS Trusts country-wide are currently advertising for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Managers at rates of pay (up to £75,000 per annum) that would probably provide each Trust with a couple of extra nurses.

Does God get a say in preferred pronoun? By Joshua Steely, Christian Post: In a recent article, Mark Silk, professor of religion in public life at Trinity College and contributing editor of RNS, advocates the use of “they” for God.

Critical Race Theory’s new disguiseby Ayaan Hirsi Ali, UnHerd: “…the goal in each case is the same: to shift away from meritocracy in favour of an equality of outcome system. But implementing a grievance model into our youth education curriculum will not fix the problems it purports to solve…Students are being taught that it is the system, not their own effort and abilities, that will determine their future in life. This discourages hard work, motivation, ambition and aspiration.’

When virtue-signalling goes wrongby Jo Bartosch, spiked: LGBT rainbow crossings are apparently confusing guide dogs.

St Andrews reverts to 16th Century Calvinismby Kristina Murkett, UnHerd: The university has introduced new induction modules for students (or should I say converts?) for students on sustainability, diversity and consent, and will not allow students to matriculate if they do not pass. How do students pass? By agreeing with certain statements, such as “acknowledging your personal guilt is a useful start point in overcoming unconscious bias.”

Double-oh dear, by Jordan Tyldesley, The Critic: How can Keir Starmer want a female James Bond when he can’t even define what a woman is?


and, signs of resistance?
