The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 80 Thinking Sex Series, Part 2 of 3 In the previous episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay presented the first third of the first Queer Theory paper to have been written, Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay “Thinking Sex.” In this episode, he continues with a second part of Rubin’s essay in which it becomes clear that Queer Theory is all about breaking down all boundaries and categories between acceptable and unacceptable sexual behavior using explicitly Marxist-style analysis (Queer Theory is Queer Marxism). Before getting to this section of the …

In the Marxist literature, you run into the words “reality,” “realities,” and “actual” all the time. This is no mistake. Marxists believe they, and they alone, have hacked the system and come to the only true or scientific understanding of reality. Everyone else sees reality through an ideological distortion, and they can use their “critical” methods to see through it. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, James Lindsay cuts through their mystification and makes it clear that when Marxists talk about “reality,” what they mean is their own weird and dangerous misinterpretation of it and nothing else. Misinformation and information …

OnlySubs Episode 96: Stop Doomscrolling is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot Stop doomscrolling. Stop. Just stop. It’s not good for you. It’s not helping. It’s not research. It’s not even making you more aware of what’s going on in the world. So stop it! Doomscrolling is a term for fairly obsessively scrolling through social media or search engine results looking for more and more reasons to believe the world is falling apart, and it is worse than useless. It’s not productive or informative. It’s distracting and anti-productive, paralyzing instead …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 79 Thinking Sex Series, Part 1 of 3 People have very rapidly realized, whether in Groomer Schools, marketing, or so many other corners of society that we’ve been suckered into supporting Queer Theory under the banner of a gay and lesbian civil rights movement. We’ve also figured out very quickly that Queer Theory is a branch of Identity Marxism: Queer Marxism, which takes “normalcy” as its special form of bourgeois property to abolish through (Queer) class struggle. Where, though, did Queer Theory come from? It is relatively widely accepted that the first …

Probably the most influential Marxist thinker of the 20th century was the Critical Marxist Herbert Marcuse. His ideas were so influential that I commonly find myself saying “we live in Herbert Marcuse’s world” today. Virtually everything crazy you see going on, perhaps except in schools, thanks to Woke Marxism and its corporate partners can be traced back neatly to Herbert Marcuse’s neo-Marxist Theory, whether “Repressive Tolerance,” the turn to Identity Marxism, or even the push for “sustainability” at the highest levels of global governance (for example, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset). Join James Lindsay …

OnlySubs Episode 95: If You’re Laughing, They’re Losing is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot Postmodernity is a funny place. You should laugh. On the other hand, you shouldn’t get mad, bro. Big mad is big losing. So this leads us to some pretty simple advice worth a few minutes consideration: if you’re laughing, they’re losing. This is generally true in the psychological demoralization warfare that we find ourselves in because if you’re laughing, you’re not being demoralized. It’s also great advice for engaging in this war’s battlefront on social media: …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 78 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 14 We spend a lot of time talking about the Woke Marxification of North America’s public schools, but what about private schools? As many who send their kids there can tell you, they’re just as Woke, if not Woker. Critical Education Theorists (Critical Pedagogs) have not ignored private schools, just like they haven’t ignored elite private universities that these schools primarily service, but how do they really think about them? In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay reads through a recent academic paper regarding bringing Freirean and …

Here’s a quick public service announcement for policymakers about a simple manipulation everyone keeps falling for: the concept of “historically marginalized” groups. Whether using the phrasing “historically marginalized” or “traditionally marginalized” groups, this little manipulation enables a grab of power and resources in a truly tricky way, and it’s “feel good” phrasing that appears in policy everywhere today. What’s the trick? Join James Lindsay for a few minutes in this episode of New Discourses Bullets to find out. Spoiler alert, if you’re in a hurry: It’s that no matter what happens after a policy bearing these terms is enacted, the group …

The dog sipping its coffee with a dumb smile on its face like its house isn’t on fire. Did you know there’s a name for the phenomenon captured by that meme? It’s called “normalcy bias,” which is a false belief that things are going as they normally do even when they aren’t.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 77 Critical Education Theory Series, Part 13 A common term of art in the current educational milieu is racial literacy. In fact, here is the giant and influential educational company Pollyanna, Inc., talking about how central racial literacy is to their K-8 education programs. What is racial literacy, though? As you will not be surprised to learn, it is the racial repackaging of Marxist education Theorist Paulo Freire’s critical literacy model using Race Marxism (Critical Race Theory) in place of Critical Marxism (Critical Theory, or neo-Marxism). In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James …
