Learning and Countering Leftist Strategy

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 127

Leftism, including Marxism, is operational. It is strategic. It knows what it’s doing and how to do it. It might look crazy, but that’s deliberate. In fact, Leftists proudly publish and disseminate activist guides for their agenda like the book Beautiful Trouble that spell out for anyone how to do “transformative” activism through deliberate and strategic troublemaking. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay ties together three activist principles from Beautiful Trouble with a large number of relevant contemporary examples to make clear how Marxist Leftism works and is working in our current American Cultural Revolution. He starts by laying out that “Your Target’s Reaction Is Your Real Action,” explains how that progresses through “Put Your Target in a Decision Dilemma,” and illustrates how the program is accelerated with “Escalate Strategically.” He also takes pains to point out that all of their activism contains a performative element, like theater, to sway public or political opinion (e.g., see “Do the Media’s Work for Them“), to offer a way not just to understand this activism but to counter it. Join him to learn how Leftists fight and how to fight back, strategically.
