Attitudes to Math vs. Logic

Modern Western culture is often considered pathological because of Progressivism. Progressivism == Modern == disease. While the previous identity is true, ultimately Progressivism thrives due to deeper, nonpartisan diseases.

If you google 'curl operator' you find a precise description and plenty of handles for googling more if you need to practice how it's done.

Learning critical thinking is exactly as mechanistic and objective. However, if you google a particular method such as 'look at something from multiple perspectives,' it is obvious that the pages were not written by a critical thinker, but instead consist of fluffy virtue-signalling. Or, in the best case, virtue-signalling with complicated obfuscations.

Progressivism took root because Hajnals were already the kind to leave the field of 'critical thinking' to the politicians.

You only need to check the CV of almost any prof teaching Critical Thinking to see that the Critical really means "Deconstructionist." I would also point to RationalWiki and the hordes of people who say things like "Reason is just a tool, "Emotional Intelligence is just as important as IQ" and "Programmers insert their unconscious bias into algorithms." A major source of crude poz.
