“What is culturally relevant teaching?” That is the question I set out to answer four years ago. Back in 2020, my wife and I were preparing to be parents and I had started researching the state of our educational system. I quickly realized that I knew essentially nothing about what was happening in our schools, despite attending them for the first twenty-two years of my life. The buzzwords were everywhere – “diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI),” “social-and-emotional learning (SEL),” “restorative justice (RJ),” and “culturally relevant teaching,” to name a few. I was completely lost, but I knew that some people

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 82 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are three words that symbolize a program that a rapidly growing proportion of people across Western nations recognize to be nefarious. Indeed, they are Communist, as has been amply discussed on this podcast and on others. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks this fact down another way. In it, he suggests that “Diversity” represents politicizing, “Equity” represents redistribution, and “Inclusion” represents accommodating the intolerant ideology of the Woke activists to achieve renormalization that transforms the institution. Join him for this insightful discussion that will change your perspective on DEI programs.

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. 80 Entryism is the idea of infiltrating an institution with hostile subversives. It’s a name for a variety of strategies for getting them in where they’re not wanted. DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) programs achieve an entryist goal through an indirect method that involves a bit of randomness. That is, they’re stochastic entryism. The way they work is to increase the probability of hiring people who are activists or who can be made activists through further training without intentionally selecting for activists in a direct way. This maintains plausible deniability about the goal of the program. Simultaneously, it

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 131 Medical Lysenkoism is the application of ideological, specifically Communist, doctrine to medicine, and it will kill tens of millions, maybe more, if it continues being put into practice. We say “continues being put into practice” here because, unfortunately, it isn’t just hypothetical; it’s well underway. In fact, not only are all the obvious manifestations of Medical Lysenkoism apparent, but also the American Medical Association (among others) have taken up an explicit commitment to Medical Lysenkoism under the brand name “health equity.” In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 70 “Diversity” and “Inclusion” don’t mean what they sound like they mean. People are catching on to this all around the world, but we need to go deeper. It’s necessary not just to know something is wrong with these ideas and their implementation but also to know how and why they’re wrong. Ultimately, this means grasping the Left’s Woke Marxist mindset, namely the idea of cultural hegemony. You see, “Diverse” means “outside of the culturally hegemonic viewpoint,” and “Inclusion” means “including and protecting counter-hegemonic perspectives and the people who promote them.” Understanding that the Left always

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 69 Struggle session season isn’t over. Even though we’re starting to understand what they are and how to deal with them, they’re still coming, sometimes with very high stakes. The point of a struggle session, ultimately, is to get you to confess to made-up crimes on contrived terms that you and others will adopt as a result of confessing. The hard truth of the struggle session is that there’s no coming back from capitulating to one. People can understand the pressures and the evil of the dynamic, but you still show yourself and those in your corner

Woke Marxism undermines law, and for it to succeed, it must pervert law to advance its own ends. So far, it has been extremely successful at this, from the Critical Legal Theory movement in the 1970s and 1980s through Critical Race Theory and outright legal and judicial activism. If our remaining judiciary remains unaware of the infiltration and subversion, we will probably lose our country. If it wakes up and discharges its duty more… judiciously… we can save our country the same way they’re trying to take it from us: without firing a shot, as the saying goes. Such is

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 54 At the very beginning of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote that we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Progressives, Communists, and the Woke have used this phrasing to drive a wedge in American society for over a century, provoking precisely the type of reaction they need to carry out their plans. Are all men really created equal? Aren’t some people smarter, stronger, faster? What about slavery? In this
