New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 48 One of the most powerful tactics against totalitarianism, one that worked to stop regimes from taking over and that broke existing regimes from within, is the simple strategy of “throwing sand in the gears,” as it’s said. What this means is going out of your way to make their programs bulky, slow, dysfunctional, and inefficient by deliberately underperforming, asking difficult questions, speaking up, and getting in the way. Do your job, if you must, but do it inefficiently as an act of “strategic resistance.” Drag your feet. Make mistakes. Play dumb. Ask hard questions, both …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 47 When is it time to stand up against Woke Marxism? Yesterday. Actually like five years ago. The next best time is right now. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay goes through the simple but important argument that as totalitarianism rolls out over your country, fighting back gets harder, not easier, with every additional day you wait to start. It’s hard to stand up now, but as time goes on, you’ll not only feel like you need to stand up more than you do now, but you’ll also realize it’s far, far …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 44 A powerful tool in the Woke Marxist toolbox is something called a “thought-terminating cliché.” These are short, pithy statements, demands, or slogans that are designed to stifle thought in their targets as well as in those saying them. “Check your privilege!” is a good example. So is “Trans women are women!” or “Believe all women!” No doubt, you will have been on the receiving end of hundreds of examples of this kind of damaging non-speech over the last several years, and it’s helpful to have a name for it. Join host James Lindsay for this …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 34 A common operational tactic of Woke Marxists is to weave a long narrative arc about what’s happening in society through media and education and then to give “proof of worldview” by plugging useful events into that mythology to spur mass line activism and direct action. That is, they fit events into narrative arcs that have been strategically laid ahead of time. If you can spot the narrative arcs and how they work, not only can you refute them, you can also predict what kinds of events would count as “worldview proof” and interrupt their success. …
