Education Professor Praises Laziness

Applying critical theory, leftists tear down everything that is noble and worthy of respect. Economic accomplishment is denounced as “greed” or “privilege.” War heroes are psychopaths or suckers. Great historical figures including the Founding Fathers are bigots. The awesome heritage of Western Civilization is trashed in favor of dysfunctional Third World savagery. After the old virtues that heritage rests on have been swept aside, they will be replaced by new, progressive virtues — like laziness:

Prof. Ryan Evely Gildersleeve, whose background is “primarily out-of-classroom learning contexts with non-dominant youth,” argues today in the research journal Qualitative Inquiry that “lazy practices can become useful for postqualitative inquiry that seeks to disrupt normative explanations of the world.”

Gildersleeve is Chairmoonbat of Higher Education at the University of Denver. He intones:

“As political action, laziness, then provides postqualitative inquiry with an additional tool for contributing to social justice via social research. Laziness combats the neoliberal condition in which academic research is situated and might serve as a virtue of postqualitative inquiry.”

As we have learned, “neoliberal” is a pejorative among academics, who use the term to denounce personal responsibility and individual liberty.

The P.C. penal code now lists disapproval of laziness as a thought crime:

Unsurprisingly, the professor says the concept of laziness is used to harm poor people, nonwhites, “overweight individuals” and women. But they can also use laziness as a weapon against “the dominant power structure” by, for example, housekeepers “completing the minimum required to keep their jobs” to protest “the subjugation of their profession and personhood.”

In utopia, any work that gets done will be done poorly. This condition was achieved by the Soviet Union, which unfortunately (from academia’s point of view) collapsed under the weight of its inefficiency.

The same sort of system will work in America though, because it will be run by the right people, like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Ryan Evely Gildersleeve.

    Court favor and be given your achievement like a good progressive, comrades!

    “In utopia, any work that gets done will be done poorly.”

    “We pretend to work. They pretend” to pay us.”

    I’d read this, but it’s time for a siesta.

  • Sandy Reardon

    Just a guess – I’ll bet the snooty Prof Gildersleeve is too lazy to shower more than once a week

  • The Uhlan

    He’d say he doesn’t need to. Probably sprays himself with that Axe insecticide.

    “primarily out-of-classroom learning contexts with non-dominant youth” – does that mean he hangs out in private rooms with submissive young guys? They lie around naked. He finds virtue in this. It all makes sense now. The best guys (and fastest learners) are lazy enough to be rent boys.

    “Neoliberal” seems to mean basically the same as what many call classical liberalism, the core philosophy behind the US Constitution. Before leftist authoritarians appropriated the term “liberal” in true Orwellean fashion. But I guess from the perspective of a cult that recognizes itself as the beginning and sum of all human enlightenment, the term makes sense.

    I wonder how heir professor feels about people who are too lazy to show up for the protest or too lazy to vote for Hillary?

    “… that seeks to disrupt normative explanations of the world.”
    so objective observation and empirical facts are to be replaced with make believe. How do people like this get a teaching position??

    I haven’t heard such gibberish since the last time I saw a 1930’s movie where a character spoke “double-talk” mixed with “pig Latin.

  • BiffWellington

    I’m sure this is a really good article, but I’m just too lazy to finish reading it…

  • Billy TwoKnives

    There must be a contest going among Liberals to see who can be the most nonsensical. What a bunch of basket case Loons.

    But, that’s good because you’ll be spending that time performing a “postqualitative inquiry that seeks to disrupt normative explanations of the world”. As opposed to beating off.
