Weekly interviews (So What You're Saying is...) and panel discussions (Counterculture) with experts and significant figures from the political, cultural and academic worlds.

    Moralitis - Is Woke Groupthink A Mental Malady? Can A Cultural 'Virus' Be Cured?

    Moralitis - Is Woke Groupthink A Mental Malady? Can A Cultural 'Virus' Be Cured?

    On this week's #NCFCounterCulture, the authors of "Moralitis: A Cultural Virus" discuss their book, which they describe as an "antidote" to the illiberal and authoritarian ideology they argue is spreading through our society and its institutions like a mental infection. Treatment and protection against this groupthink "virus" is crucial to reviving the Enlightenment values of liberty, reason and truth -- and restoring our nation and society to good health.

    The panel:
    * Dr. Niall McCrae, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health at King's College London & Co-author of "Moralitis: A Cultural Virus"

    * Robert Oulds, Director of The Bruges Group & co-Author of "Moralitis: A Cultural Virus"

    * Marc Sidwell, Journalist, Deputy Editor of "Smith" Magazine and author of "The Long March Through The Institutions" (published by the New Culture Forum)

    * Rafe Heydel-Mankoo of the New Culture Forum, Historian & Broadcaster

    Nick Buckley MBE - Sacked For Criticising BLM Despite Helping 1000s Of Children

    Nick Buckley MBE - Sacked For Criticising BLM Despite Helping 1000s Of Children

    This week on #SWYSI, Peter Whittle speaks with Nick Buckley MBE, the award-winning founder of the ground-breaking charity Mancunian Way, who was sacked from his position in June after criticising the far-Left political agenda of the Black Lives Matter campaign.

    Mr Buckley was dismissed by the trustees of the charity he founded nine years ago, after an online mob accused him of ‘inappropriate’ and ‘insensitive’ views and demanded his removal.

    Mr Buckley, who was awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours List for his work with vulnerable youngsters across Manchester, wrote a blog post that sparked uproar for warning of the ‘neo-Marxist’ policies of Black Lives Matter UK – which include tearing down capitalism and abolishing the police – and saying they risked dividing communities.

    Campaigners branded him a racist and launched an online petition demanding that he be sacked. He was dismissed within days.

    Andrew Doyle: "My First Little Book Of Intersectional Activism", a parody of today's woke kids books

    Andrew Doyle: "My First Little Book Of Intersectional Activism", a parody of today's woke kids books

    Andrew Doyle, creator of "Titania McGrath" (a parody of a militant social justice warrior) and co-creator of "Jonathan Pie", returns to the "So What You're Saying Is..." (#SWYSI) sofa to discuss "Titania's" hilarious new book: "My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism"

    Doyle wrote the book as a parody of the many heavily-politicised woke childrens' books that are currently being published in an attempt to indoctrinate our children. To quote:

    "Aimed at activists from the age of six months to six years, Titania's book will help cultivate a new progressive generation. In a series of groundbreaking and poignant chapters, she will take you on a journey with some of the most inspiring individuals in history, such as Emmeline Pankhurst, Meghan Markle, Nelson Mandela, Hillary Clinton and Joseph Stalin."

    Whilst his book is humorous, Doyle wrote it to help expose a serious issue that extends far beyond childrens' books: namely, the flagrant indoctrination of children in the education system, where children are taught pseudo-history and controversial theories about gender, white privilege etc. Some are even told to ignore their parents' views where those views contradict classroom teaching. Such biased teaching, Doyle argues, is very likely illegal according to the 1996 Education Act. Yet our politicians remain silent on this issue.

    "My First Little Book of Intersectional Activism" is available from Amazon and all good bookshops: https://www.amazon.co.uk/First-Little...

    Douglas Murray - The Cult Of Woke & The Project To Lie About Our History

    Douglas Murray - The Cult Of Woke & The Project To Lie About Our History

    With the release of the paperback version of his best-selling book "The Madness of Crowds", Douglas Murray returns to the #SWYSI sofa to chat with Peter Whittle about the current state of the culture wars in Britain and the West. Murray believes the heart of the current #BLM problem we see in the USA is that America's youth are taught that their country has committed more harm than any other. As we've seen, this lamentable view is very real and present in the UK, too. Such ignorance, Murray continues, is most present amongst the members of the elite, whose children have been expensively educated to believe clear and blatant falsehoods.

    Although some thought the issue of trans in sports was the "tipping point" that would cause society's pendulum to swing back to a more sensible state of affairs, Douglas Murray argues that recent history is littered with similar "tipping point" moments (not least in the area of Islamic terrorism) and that these have proved, at best, damp squibs.

    Nevertheless, Murray does believe the voices of opposition to such madness are growing, hearteningly from the left, too. He highlights the importance of people like JK Rowling making their voices heard to "argue the truth".

    To preserve their sanity, Douglas suggests people try their best to depoliticize their lives. He believes that young people have been misled by thinking that purpose in life is achieved through political activism. If one thinks that everything in life is politics, then those who disagree become unmentionables -- people who have bad intentions. That causes a harsh division that is not healthy or sustainable.

    Douglas Murray's book may be purchased here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Madness-Crow...
