The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 67 It’s time the unvarnished truth about Critical Race Theory is told in full. That truth is simple: Critical Race Theory is Race Marxism, that is, Marxian Theory reinvented with race as “the central construct for understanding inequality” in place of economic class. That conclusion is unavoidable after reading this new, groundbreaking book from James Lindsay: Race Marxism: The Truth About Critical Race Theory and Praxis, published by New Discourses. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, the author introduces this book to the world, including reading an excerpt from the …

OnlySubs Episode 82: Wokeness Rejects Limiting PrinciplesĀ is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot We’ve discussedĀ beforeĀ how every Woke slope is slippery. That is, we’ve discussed how a commitment to social constructivism prevents Woke agendas from ever being able to say “this is far enough.” In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I hit this idea again with somewhat different framing. Specifically, I explain why Wokeness not only lacks any limiting principle on its activism but also, far more concerningly, is intrinsically disposed against any possible limiting principle. …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 66Critical Education Theory Series, Part 5 Fancy buzzwords proliferate around the fight in education, especially now that Critical Race Theory has been exposed so thoroughly (asĀ Race Marxism). Terms like Ethnic Studies, Social-Emotional Learning, and all manner of “culturally”Ā somethingĀ teaching seem like they have cropped up out of the ground in just the last few months, but they’re actually old. Culturally relevant teaching (CRT) is one of these, pioneered first in 1995 by Marxist and Critical-Race education activist Gloria Ladson-Billings. In that year, Ladson-Billings wrote both “Toward a Critical Race Theory of Education” and …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 65Critical Education Theory Series, Part 4 Perhaps no Marxist has had more influence on the Western world than the Brazilian crackpot educator Paulo Freire, who is most famous for his bookĀ The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, which is the third most-cited work in the social sciences and humanities in the history of the world and a mainstay in all education programs today. Understanding Freire and his influence is therefore paramount to understanding how our education system has been poisoned by Marxist Theory over the last forty years. To put it simply, Freire must …

OnlySubs Episode 80: The Southern Baptist Convention and the Subordination of ScriptureĀ is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot In April of 2019, the famously conservative Southern Baptist Convention adopted an infamous resolution, Resolution 9, bringing into the Convention both Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality “as an analytical tool subordinate to Scripture.” This is, at best, a fundamental misunderstanding of Woke Marxism (thus CRT/I), which are explicitly designed to identify anything they are put in subordination to, subvert that thing, and then occupy a position of dominance over it (which …

Why? Conservatism is usually put in direct opposition to progress, but this doesn’t seem to be what happens in reality. Why? In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I talk about how genuine progress is made through conserving the principles that enable it. This is, in other words, what Benjamin Franklin meant …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 64 Most people think of Marxism as an economic theory or, perhaps, a social theory. This isn’t sufficient. Marxism, strange as it may sound, is a theology, the basis for a religion. This isn’t to say that Marxism or Communism isĀ likeĀ a religion. It is to say that it literally is a religion. The basis of the Marxian theology is work, or, as they tend to have it,Ā the work. You mustĀ do the work. The work is the basis of the Marxian theology in the same way that submission is the basis of Islam …

Then I relaxed, remembering that until quite recently, nobody had smartphones, and people usually found their way just fine nonetheless. In this episode of …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 63Critical Education Theory Series, Part 3 How did Wokeness come about? Here on the New Discourses Podcast, we’ve dedicated hours and hours to uncovering the roles of neo-Marxism (or, Critical Marxism; or, Critical Theory), postmodern Theory, Marxism, Hegelianism, and other dimensions of Leftist thought. The role played by Critical Pedagogy, and in particular the Marxian Theory ofĀ PauloĀ Freire, has not been fully discussed, however. The role played by this line of Marxian thought cannot be ignored, however, because, as James Lindsay puts it in the forthcoming bookĀ Race Marxism, Critical Pedagogy is the plow, …
