New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 91 Woke Marxism is a cult. It’s not like a cult. It’s not kind of a cult. It’s a cult. Because it’s a cult, and like the word “Woke” implies, becoming Woke means experiencing a rebirth into the social, emotional, and intellectual worldview of the cult’s doctrine. In fact, fathers of Woke Marxist theory, like Paulo Freire, are explicit about this aspect of Woke Marxism in the starkest possible terms. For Freire, awakening to critical consciousness (becoming Woke) is a personal Easter, a spiritual death and resurrection on the side of the oppressed. How do we know? He says

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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 89 Our future, if the Woke Marxists prevail, may well be to be made into “digital cattle.” What does that mean? It means that we will be led into a state of dependency, perhaps using a Universal Basic Income, and enter into a remade (distributist) economy based on social credit, which is to say compliance with the state’s agendas for us. To make this system work, both practically and in terms of control mechanisms takes incredible amounts of data. Like cattle who earn their feed by being raised for meat, we will earn our “basic income”

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 88 Compliance can be extracted by tyrants from a population through a straightforward method of creating enmity between segments of the population. First, the population is split into those who comply with the tyrant’s programs and policies and those who do not comply. If there are enough among the compliant, a demonization campaign we should call “hatecraft” is employed to pressure those dragging their feet to comply and to demonize those who refuse compliance. Perhaps no one in history was more skilled at these techniques, the politics of compliance, than Mao Zedong in CCP-controlled China. In this

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 138 George Soros has a theory of change, and his goal is to make and move history. That theory of change is easy to understand if we take the time. It is also explicitly dialectical and alchemical. For Soros, society moves “historically” during times of chaos when people are searching for guideposts for what the future will bring, and it proceeds through change by “fertile fallacies,” which are the seeds of what has elsewhere been called mass-formation psychosis. That is, feedback loops based on consequential errors change history. If you want to change

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 87 We all know we have to tell the truth, especially in these trying times. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn told us that a single man telling the truth could bring down a regime. Well, how do you tell the truth against those odds? You need a lot more than knowing you should tell the truth. You have to love the truth (and fear it!) with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul, and all your strength, and then you need to tell your neighbor the truth as you would expect him to tell the truth to

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 86 One of the most potent techniques dialectal wizards make use of is setting “affordance traps.” An affordance trap is a way to trap their targets into a very limited range of options (which are afforded to them), usually with the psychological effect of making it difficult or impossible to think of any other possibilities other than those offered. Breaking free of affordance traps is necessary to beating Woke Marxism and all other forms of dialectical manipulation. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of New Discourses Bullets to learn about this important topic. Additional episodes of New

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 85 How should we describe the system currently used in China? It’s the CCP, Chinese Communist Party, so it’s obviously a Communist nation, but look at the crazy-rich Asians and the huge corporations there. It’s not Uncle Joe’s Communism, that’s for sure. So, what is it? Whether we want to call it Chinese Communism, Communism 3.0, or Neoliberal Communism, it’s a Communist state that’s operating with a controlled, Potemkin neoliberal “market” economy. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay spells it out. Join him for a little storytelling with a point! Additional episodes

All Marxism is cult religious. All Marxist “theory” begins by believing it uniquely knows what human beings really are (socio-spiritual beings), into what they have been thrown (a mundane world of property ownership, imposed identity, and suffering through scarcity), and to what we must return (a truly social society that transcends individualism). Because Marxists fundamentally believe they know the true and secret socio-spiritual nature of humans whereas (demonic, Demiurgic) social forces have conditioned everyone else not to know them, they feel uniquely entitled to power for the purpose of remaking man into who he is. This explains most of their

The following is derived from the preparatory notes I made for my February 20, 2024, remarks to the University of Pittsburgh TPUSA chapter, as pictured, which was protested but very well received. I’m here to talk about Queer Theory. Some major points can be summarized very easily. Queer Theory is the doctrine of a religious cult; That religious cult is based on sex; That sex-based religious cult primarily targets children; and Almost none of it has anything to do with gay identity. Let’s address the last point first because it’s the least obvious. The term “queer” in “Queer Theory” gets
