In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I dive back in to talk about the idea of the “negative thinking” or “critical method” of Marxism in these terms. The long and short goes like this: Marxist critique is like believing the best …

OnlySubs Episode 100: Liberalism Won’t Grab the Bat is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot A while back here on the James Lindsay OnlySubs podcast, I did an episode talking about liberalism as an “unstable equilibrium” a broad sociopolitical philosophy. In it, I gave this slightly awkward metaphor about society being like a baseball bat, and liberalism being like balancing the bat upright on the palm of your hand. My point was that you have to move your hand around constantly to keep the bat upright. It’s only a republic if …

OnlySubs Episode 99: Communism, Terrible Idea, Every Species is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot One of the more famous quips about Communism comes from the renowned biologist (entomologist, technically) E.O. Wilson. He said that it was a “great idea, wrong species,” meaning that it’s not suited to human beings and human nature. Wilson studied ants, and he clearly had in mind that the much more hive-like species he dedicated his life to understanding is more suited to Communism. He wasn’t right about that. In fact, he reproduced the key …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 82 Before the last year or so, two terms you wouldn’t have expected to encounter together are “drag queen” and “early childhood education,” but we’re now about three years into a full-fledged Communist revolution in the Western world, which has made it not only commonplace but shoved all in our faces. Here we are in the midst of June, “Pride Month,” 2022, and the Leftist collision of drag queens and young children has been center-stage all month long, including in schools. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the idea of using drag queens, or specifically a …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 12 Two of the most infamous figures of the 20th century are two of its most notorious Marxist dictators: Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong. Each had his own methods. Speaking broadly, Lenin’s Bolshevik approach could be considered top-down, imposed by government and its seized industries, and Mao’s “Marxism-Leninism with Chinese Characteristics” might be considered bottom-up, a youth rebellion, and inside-out, a cultural revolution ushered in by his radicalized youth. The most infamous Neo-Communist figure of the early 21st century will be Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, who has figured out how to combine …

This is one of those episodes. I want to dive pretty deeply into the idea of why there’s almost no capacity to communicate across the divide between Marxists (Woke, especially, or otherwise) and virtually everyone else, and it comes down to something far deeper than political disagreement. There are …
