About this Episode

In this episode of Pensive Politics with Mr. Watson, Mr. Watson talks with New Discourses editor and world-renowned critical race theory expert James Lindsay. Lindsay has taken a very important cultural role in dismantling the tenets of racially-based ideologies by developing in-depth expertise on the field and its related fields. In this dynamic interview, Lindsay and Watson explore the foundational tenets of social justice and woke-related ideologies. They discuss deconstructionist thinkers like Michel Foucault, philosophers who have influenced modern-day social justice theory (inadvertently or not) like Nietzsche. They also discuss the various critical race theory and woke trappings of collegiate debate, analyzing and debunking ideas like anti-blackness, re-telling time, post-colonialism, and more.
