The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 138 George Soros has a theory of change, and his goal is to make and move history. That theory of change is easy to understand if we take the time. It is also explicitly dialectical and alchemical. For Soros, society moves ‚Äúhistorically‚ÄĚ during times of chaos when people are searching for guideposts for what the future will bring, and it proceeds through change by ‚Äúfertile fallacies,‚ÄĚ which are the seeds of what has elsewhere been called mass-formation psychosis. That is, feedback loops based on consequential¬†errors change history. If you want to change

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 81 We all hear about the pendulum swinging in politics. We’re also all aware that the pendulum is currently pushed very far Left, leading people to suspect it will swing back hard soon; indeed, maybe too hard. It’s important to understand how Work Marxists and other Leftists throughout history have made intentional and productive use of the pendulum swinging. It is their style to arrange affairs so that when the pendulum swings back, it has also moved position so that instead of striking them, it strikes another one of their targets. In this episode of New

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 59 Thankfully, the world is rapidly waking up to the threat of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) scoring for corporations and beyond. The nature of that threat and its contours are coming into view, and people are taking action. In truth, as menacing and dangerous as ESG is in what it‚Äôs doing¬†right now, the real threat of ESG lies elsewhere. The real threat of ESG is that it can be arbitrarily defined at the whim of a small number of unaccountable executives calling themselves ‚Äústakeholders.‚ÄĚ That‚Äôs fearsome tyrannical power. Join host James Lindsay for this episode

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 58 If you are Woke, you are in danger, not from the people you think you need to fight every waking moment of your day but from the people you support. History teaches this. The philosophy you support indicates it. If you succeed, you lose. If your movement fails, unless you make some serious changes, you also lose. That’s not an enviable position to be in. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay offers you this short open audio letter, hoping you might realize you are on a collision course with History in

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
