You may not realize it, but you are currently
funding some dangerous people.

They are indoctrinating young minds throughout
the West with their resentment-ridden ideology.

They have made it their life's mission to
undermine Western civilization itself,

which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and “patriarchal.”
If you're a taxpayer—or paying for your
kid's liberal arts degree—you're underwriting

this gang of nihilists.
You're supporting ideologues who claim that
all truth is subjective; that all sex differences

are socially constructed; and that Western
imperialism is the sole source

of all Third World problems.
They are the post-modernists, pushing “progressive”
activism at a college near you.

They produce the mobs that violently shut
down campus speakers; the language police

who enshrine into law use of fabricated gender
pronouns; and the deans whose livelihoods

depend on madly rooting out discrimination
where little or none exists.

Their thinking took hold in Western universities
in the '60s and '70s, when the true believers

of the radical left became the professors
of today.

And now we rack up education-related debt—not
so that our children learn to think critically,

write clearly, or speak properly, but so they
can model their mentors' destructive agenda.

It's now possible to complete an English degree
and never encounter Shakespeare—one of those

dead white males whose works underlie our
“society of oppression.”

To understand and oppose the post-modernists,
the ideas by which they orient themselves

must be clearly identified.
First is their new unholy trinity of diversity,
equity and inclusion.

Diversity is defined not by opinion, but by
race, ethnicity or sexual identity; equity

is no longer the laudable goal of equality
of opportunity, but the insistence on equality

of outcome; and inclusion is the use of identity-based
quotas to attain this misconceived state of equity.

All the classic rights of the West are to
be considered secondary to these new values.

Take, for example, freedom of speech—the
very pillar of democracy.

The post-modernists refuse to believe that
people of good will can exchange ideas

and reach consensus.
Their world is instead a Hobbesian nightmare
of identity groups warring for power.

They don't see ideas that run contrary to
their ideology as simply incorrect.

They see them as integral to the oppressive
system they wish to supplant, and consider

it a moral obligation to stifle and constrain
their expression.

Second is rejection of the free market—of
the very idea that free, voluntary trading

benefits everyone.
They won't acknowledge that capitalism has
lifted up hundreds of millions of people

so they can for the first time in history afford
food, shelter, clothing, transportation

—even entertainment and travel.
Those classified as poor in the US (and, increasingly,
everywhere else) are able to meet their basic needs.

Meanwhile, in once-prosperous Venezuela—until
recently the poster-child of the campus radicals—

the middle class lines up for toilet paper.
Third, and finally, are the politics of identity.
Post-modernists don't believe in individuals.
You're an exemplar of your race, sex, or sexual
preference.

You're also either a victim or an oppressor.
No wrong can be done by anyone in the former
group, and no good by the latter.

Such ideas of victimization do nothing but
justify the use of power

and engender intergroup conflict.
All these concepts originated with Karl Marx,
the 19th-century German philosopher.

Marx viewed the world as a gigantic class
struggle—the bourgeoisie against the proletariat;

the grasping rich against the desperate poor.
But wherever his ideas were put into practice—in
the Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, and Cambodia,

to name just a few—whole economies failed,
and tens of millions were killed.

We fought a decades-long cold war to stop
the spread of those murderous notions.

But they're back, in the new guise of identity
politics.

The corrupt ideas of the post-modern neo-Marxists
should be consigned to the dustbin of history.

Instead, we underwrite their continuance in
the very institutions where the central ideas

of the West should be transmitted across the
generations.

Unless we stop, post-modernism will do to
America and the entire Western world

what it's already done to its universities.
I'm Jordan Peterson, Professor of Psychology
at the University of Toronto, for Prager University.
