Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” talks to Peter Boghossian, Debra Soh, Gad Saad, Bret Weinstein, and Nicholas Christakis about the origins of woke culture in this special “best of” episode. To understand how our institutions have been corrupted by wokeism and how to fight it, it’s vital to understand how we got here. Peter Boghossian explains how postmodernism and the Frankfurt School helped create the foundation for critical theory and what has been best described as cultural Marxism. He explains why only creative non-traditional methods can be used to fight its adherents as they avoid debate and reason. Debra Soh shares why much of the science on transgender kids and gender dysphoria can’t be trusted and may be leading to unecessary transgender surgery that results in irreversible damage. Gad Saad talks about the corruption of science and how the scientific method is being abandoned in the social sciences. Bret Weinstein describes what it was like to be targeted by a mob at Evergreen State College for objecting to a twist in their annual “day of absence” that targeted white students and faculty. Finally, Nicholas Christakis describes his experience of being targeted at the Yale Halloween protest.
