“We can't just keep funding people who are playing in make-believe-land, cranking out information to inform public policy that's completely divorced from reality. It's a recipe for cultural suicide,” says Peter Boghossian, assistant professor of philosophy at Portland State University and co-author of “How to Have Impossible Conversations.”

A lifelong liberal and critic of former President Trump, Boghossian believes describing people as left or right is losing utility. It’s those who demand you think a certain way who are on one side, while those who do not are on the other.

“We are facing an extraordinarily intolerant dangerous ideology, perpetuated by people who want to rob us of our cognitive liberty,” he says.

Activist Teachers Fiercely Opposed My Bill to Keep Critical Race Theory Out of Schools

 It is alarming that teachers are so fiercely defending the use of CRT in schools, and even encouraged students to object to my bill as part of school assignments.

Last week the Rhode Island House Education Committee held a hearing on H-6070, the bill I introduced as a Representative to ban the use of Critical Race Theory in our schools. Testimony was submitted by 577 Rhode Islanders. Half supported banning CRT, half opposed. The most fierce and vitriolic opposition came from teachers themselves, reflecting how deeply CRT already has penetrated education.

 

Here is the speech I gave introducing the the bill (you can see the transcript here😞
