The Lie of Planned Spontaneity

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 89

Regardless of the issue (BLM, Drag Queen Story Hour, Pride, or a college uprising), the ideological totalism of Woke Marxism uses classic tactics to advance itself. One of those is a kind of manipulation through what is called “planned spontaneity,” a clear oxymoron. Planned spontaneity is a “mystical manipulation,” in the words of Robert Jay Lifton, that gives the totalizing cult the appearance of incredible, widespread, organic support, if not omniscience. The current pro-Hamas (or pro-Palestine) student uprisings are no exception. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains this phenomenon through the lens of Lifton’s work, particularly indicating how the current Red-Guard student uprisings fit into this fake, manipulative frame of reference. Don’t miss it!
