CRC and Dangerous Documentaries Announces New Series: The Architects of Woke

The Capital Research Center is proud to announce the release of the first episode of a new webseries, The Architects of Woke, this Monday, March 11th at 12pm ET on YouTube, Facebook, DangerousDocumentaries.com, and CapitalResearch.org. The episode is entitled “Judith Butler’s War on Science.”

Released under CRC’s Dangerous Documentaries film brand, The Architects of Woke will release episodes throughout 2019. The series takes aim at far-left post-modernist and Marxist thinkers and activists responsible for the spread of identity politics from college campuses to society at large.

The first episode exposes the outsized influence of Judith Butler, the University of California at Berkeley feminist gender theorist famous for making the argument that gender is a performance rather than biological reality, leading to the notion that gender is an endlessly divisible spectrum that can have far more than two types (male and female), which is contradicted by substantial evidence. Butler’s theories, spread through dense, opaque language, gave birth to the notion that gender is subjective and non-binary, which has corrupted feminism. Butler is a powerful force in academe; she serves on the executive council of the Modern Language Association, which sets writing standards for high school and undergraduate students.

The Architects of Woke is hosted and directed by filmmaker Rob Montz, Montz is the co-founder and CEO of Good Kid Productions. His online documentary work has attracted millions of views and coverage in major outlets, including The Economist, USA Today, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Adam Carolla Podcast. His 2017 documentary “Silence U. PT 2: What Has Yale Become?,” published on We the Internet TV, won the 2018 Reason Video Prize.

Subjects of upcoming episodes of The Architects of Woke will include Slavoj Žižek, a highly influential Marxist-Leninist philosopher, and Chapo Trap House, the wildly popular podcast that’s the most funded project on Patreon. The radical socialist podcast has been described as “the last stop off the socialist train before Antifa.”
