The Great Awokening, Lecture 7

In this lecture series, "The Idolatry of Identity," Dr. Matthew Petrusek discusses contemporary progressive ideology, also frequently referred to as “wokeism,” and the response of the Catholic social thought tradition. In Lecture 1, Dr. Petrusek identifies the ideological components that constitute progressivism and examines what makes contemporary progressive ideology attractive. He also demonstrates how progressivism both appropriates and distorts competing political theories—and yokes those distortions into the service of a particular group’s self-interest. Lecture 2 Lecture 3 Lecture 4 Post modernism Lecture 5 Post Colonialism, Pt. 1 Fanon Lecture 6 Post Colonialism, Pt. 2 In Lecture 7, Dr. Matthew Petrusek sheds light on the shadow side of “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” as he explains how all the widely disparate strands of progressivism/wokeism find a tenuous but politically potent unity in the concept of “intersectionality.” Lecture 8 Lecture 9
