Let's take a look at how even the subject of modern dance has been infected with #CriticalRaceTheory from this #StruggleSession at Indiana University. Part 1...
Modern Dance is white supremacy according to #IndianaUniversity dance professor. Part 2:
This next part makes me particularly sad. While the arts are often left leaning, they've been one of the remaining areas of classical learning. You know, with an actually talented teacher who you work with as an apprentice. Imagine being a dance student under this:

Here’s what I learned about architecture school and practice in my latest podcast with Zach (@cantradionalist): (0/6)
1. @wrathofgnon has likely turned more people in favour of traditional architecture with twitter than anything else today.

Except for, perhaps, the ugly buildings themselves.

FOLLOW HIM.
2. The culture wars have reached architecture schools too. “Critical” architecture, just like Critical _________ Studies, seeks to subvert and revolutionize, not improve and support. (see @ConceptualJames for more)

"#Modernism can be characterized as the forceful imposition of rational administrative procedures into all facets of everyday life. Its subjects — you and I as individuated identities — crave both protection and authority.
You and I search for some measure of refuge in a totalized, secularized myth, a grand meta-narrative that accounts for everything, and this tendency towards #totalitarianism is worldwide.
The concern of the United States over its loss of market share in the service industries, and its concern over the quality of work by its subjects, are only symptoms of a much more pervasive and deeply rooted historical condition.
