Lecture 5: Post-Colonialism – Part I

Dr. Matthew Petrusek

January 10, 2023


Lecture 5 turns to another ideology called post-colonialism. Like post-modernism, post-colonialism adopts and politically weaponizes moral relativism. However, as we see, it adds an additional dimension that progressivism also finds useful in advancing its political goals: a division of the world into two—and only two—contending groups: oppressors vs. the oppressed.

In this lecture series, Dr. Matthew Petrusek discusses contemporary progressive ideology, also frequently referred to as “wokeism,” and the response of the Catholic social thought tradition.
