The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 134 Fascism wasn’t just a “bad thing” that happened in the first half of the twentieth century, and it’s not just a bogus word the Left throws around today about everyone and everything it doesn’t like. It was an explicit totalitarian ideology of state power that arose as a reaction to Communist provocation and libertine excesses in the 1920s and 1930s. That doesn’t go far enough in describing it, though. It is, in fact, the dialectical antithesis of Marxism and libertinistic “liberalism,” which is to say that it is an ideology that

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 74 Recent events in the Middle East, namely between Israel and “Palestine,” have thrust the Postcolonial Theory branch of Woke Marxism into stark and stunning relief in a very short time. The world is quickly learning that “decolonization” is always meant to be violent, and the Islamist jihad against Israel is a project supported by the whole of the global Left, including especially the Woke Marxist Left throughout the West. People are horrified, rightly, but what’s needed is clarity. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains the Woke mindset on settler-colonialism and

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 131 Medical Lysenkoism is the application of ideological, specifically Communist, doctrine to medicine, and it will kill tens of millions, maybe more, if it continues being put into practice. We say “continues being put into practice” here because, unfortunately, it isn’t just hypothetical; it’s well underway. In fact, not only are all the obvious manifestations of Medical Lysenkoism apparent, but also the American Medical Association (among others) have taken up an explicit commitment to Medical Lysenkoism under the brand name “health equity.” In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 67 Given recent events in the Middle East, in which Woke Marxists throughout the world have indicated their total alignment with Palestine against Israel even in light of atrocities, the idea of “decolonization” is back in the center stage. Academics and activists across the West are not only celebratory of the violence in Israel; they are also mocking the general public for failing to realize that “decolonization” is intrinsically a violent, brutal process. What’s going on here? Where do these ideas come from? The answer is that these ideas come from a postcolonialist named Frantz Fanon,

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 2 of 3 Leftist activism is happy to take direct wins whenever it can get them, but that’s not always possible. When it can’t get direct wins through the front door, it is also more than happy to get its wins through the back door by exploiting what we can call an action-reaction dynamic. As an act of dialectical political warfare, which is their battle logic, Leftist agitators will provoke a reaction, control the framing around that reaction to a watching audience, and use the reaction as justification to advance their cause. This

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 66 It is a persistent myth and common lie that Queer Education (Queer Pedagogy) is meant to in some way help “LGBTQ kids,” whether by fostering empathy, increasing visibility, providing role models, or whatever else. This is blatantly not true. In fact, it’s blatantly not true in their own words. “Queer” is not an identity at all, and it has nothing in principle to do with any sexuality, gender dysphoria (or sex confusion), or any other real thing. Queer is explicitly and intentionally an oppositional political stance. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay goes over

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 1 of 3 The Left moves operationally and according to a battle logic known as “dialectical political warfare.” The dialectic is the operating system of the Left, and it works by marrying a truth to a lie. Political warfare is a method of conducting warfare in which political means are used with hostile intent to get an enemy to behave in a desired fashion—propaganda is a great example. Perhaps the greatest dialectical political warfare tactician in human history is the monstrous figure of Mao Zedong, Communist dictator of China until his death in

Woke Marxism undermines law, and for it to succeed, it must pervert law to advance its own ends. So far, it has been extremely successful at this, from the Critical Legal Theory movement in the 1970s and 1980s through Critical Race Theory and outright legal and judicial activism. If our remaining judiciary remains unaware of the infiltration and subversion, we will probably lose our country. If it wakes up and discharges its duty more… judiciously… we can save our country the same way they’re trying to take it from us: without firing a shot, as the saying goes. Such is

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 61 Why are Gnostic cults so tempting? Why do people get sucked into them? It’s not because Gnostics go around telling people they’re wrong. It’s because they go around telling people they’re limited. Your beliefs, maybe in science, spirituality, Christianity, politics, or whatever, aren’t wrong; they’re low-level. The Gnostics hold themselves out as people who know more about whatever you’re into than you do, and they explain their superiority as being “liberated” from the limitations “THEY” (your teachers, pastors, etc.) are placing upon your knowledge. They don’t want you to know these secrets, but we do. That’s the Gnostic temptation. Host James Lindsay
