We all know that equity is a form of socialism now, almost. We're also entering a new phase of the societal debate about the topic, so it's worth clarifying the issue. As it turns out, we do embrace and want to embrace certain forms of "equity" programs as it is actually defined, but only under certain conditions. Those limits to equity are most comprehensible by the many approaches to disability discussed in both the sane and the Woke-insane literature that might broadly be classified as "disability studies" or the philosophy of the phenomenon of disability in society. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay walks through four distinct models of interpreting disability and uses them to draw out the true limits to equity programs. Join him to learn how to discuss this topic with greater clarity and compassion so we can leave the Marxist versions behind forever.
