New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 93 Surely you’ve noticed that Woke doesn’t work. Of course it doesn’t. It’s not just bad ideas put into operation by bad people and obvious grifters, though, that causes the problem. Woke Marxism isn’t even interested in making things work. In fact, it’s worse than that, even. Woke Marxism is, by definition, hostile to making things work. It is, as Herbert Marcuse put it in An Essay on Liberation in 1969, a protest against “the totality of a well-functioning and prosperous society,” even against its very Platonic Form. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 92 There’s an old saying about Communists that applies to all militant ideologies: they are good at conquest and bad at management. That’s only half of the story. The fact is that because of their cult-religious nature, various strains of Communism aren’t just bad at management; they’re completely disinterested in management. That is, they don’t want to make things work; they just want to control people and institutions to make more Communists. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains the ideas behind that simple summary of Communist behavior. Join him to learn

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 140 Queer Theory is the doctrine of a sex-based cult that has very little to do with gay people and lots of interest in our children. We really need to understand that. Based on remarks James Lindsay delivered at the University of Pittsburgh in February 2024, in this episode of the New Discourses podcast, he makes even more clear why Queer Theory defines a cult and how it works as such, particularly to initiate our kids.

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 91 Woke Marxism is a cult. It’s not like a cult. It’s not kind of a cult. It’s a cult. Because it’s a cult, and like the word “Woke” implies, becoming Woke means experiencing a rebirth into the social, emotional, and intellectual worldview of the cult’s doctrine. In fact, fathers of Woke Marxist theory, like Paulo Freire, are explicit about this aspect of Woke Marxism in the starkest possible terms. For Freire, awakening to critical consciousness (becoming Woke) is a personal Easter, a spiritual death and resurrection on the side of the oppressed. How do we know? He says

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 89 Regardless of the issue (BLM, Drag Queen Story Hour, Pride, or a college uprising), the ideological totalism of Woke Marxism uses classic tactics to advance itself. One of those is a kind of manipulation through what is called “planned spontaneity,” a clear oxymoron. Planned spontaneity is a “mystical manipulation,” in the words of Robert Jay Lifton, that gives the totalizing cult the appearance of incredible, widespread, organic support, if not omniscience. The current pro-Hamas (or pro-Palestine) student uprisings are no exception. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains this phenomenon through the lens

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 138 The United Nations is a religious organization, and the religion behind it is a cult. More specifically, it is a theosophical cult based on an “evolutionary” vision for mankind that it wants to control. This fact is revealed in a strange book by late UN big-wig and creator of the World Core Curriculum (Common Core in the United States), Robert Muller, from about 25 years ago titled 2000 Ideas for a Better World, which he published in four volumes in the lead-up to the year 2000 (links below). Muller delivered this book and

The following is derived from the preparatory notes I made for my February 20, 2024, remarks to the University of Pittsburgh TPUSA chapter, as pictured, which was protested but very well received. I’m here to talk about Queer Theory. Some major points can be summarized very easily. Queer Theory is the doctrine of a religious cult; That religious cult is based on sex; That sex-based religious cult primarily targets children; and Almost none of it has anything to do with gay identity. Let’s address the last point first because it’s the least obvious. The term “queer” in “Queer Theory” gets

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 84 “Communism marries a truth to a lie.” -Julie Behling, author of Beneath Sheep’s Clothingand director of a forthcoming documentary by the same title. One of the most basic truths about how Marxism works is that it marries a truth to a lie. Another way that has been put is that “every Woke term conceals an agenda.” In order to combat Woke Marxism, then, it is crucial that we learn to pull apart the truth and the lie and to expose the manipulation involved. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay takes you through the principle and

Should the United States split up? The country is more polarized than it ever has been, at least since the Civil War, having divided not so much geographically but culturally and ideologically. The two broad factions in this split are what we might call the “Red Team” (conservatives) and the “Blue Team” (progressives)—the irony in these color designations not being lost on many. Now that things are so divided, might it just be better to go our separate ways as peacefully as possible so we can get on with life? Might it be time for a “National Divorce”? Blue Team

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 134 Fascism wasn’t just a “bad thing” that happened in the first half of the twentieth century, and it’s not just a bogus word the Left throws around today about everyone and everything it doesn’t like. It was an explicit totalitarian ideology of state power that arose as a reaction to Communist provocation and libertine excesses in the 1920s and 1930s. That doesn’t go far enough in describing it, though. It is, in fact, the dialectical antithesis of Marxism and libertinistic “liberalism,” which is to say that it is an ideology that
