The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 135 We all know that equity is a form of socialism now, almost. We’re also entering a new phase of the societal debate about the topic, so it’s worth clarifying the issue. As it turns out, we do embrace and want to embrace certain forms of “equity” programs as it is actually defined, but only under certain conditions. Those limits to equity are most comprehensible by the many approaches to disability discussed in both the sane and the Woke-insane literature that might broadly be classified as “disability studies” or the philosophy of the phenomenon of disability in

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 44 A powerful tool in the Woke Marxist toolbox is something called a “thought-terminating cliché.” These are short, pithy statements, demands, or slogans that are designed to stifle thought in their targets as well as in those saying them. “Check your privilege!” is a good example.

Over the past decade I’ve watched with alarm the widening polarization of the body politic across Western societies (and to some extent globally).As commonly recognized, the public is split into irreconcilable political factions who disagree not only on the interpretation of events, but on what events even took place. They have seemingly separated into two disjoint realities, each with its own facts, authorities, histories, and narratives.In this polarized environment, each side attributes the problem of polarization to the other side’s descent into unreason, having fallen victim to an evil, manipulating power. However, the trend toward polarization extends far beyond the
