The reasons are really something too: it creates groupthink, destroys independent thought,

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 143 Canada is in a lot of trouble, but few of us realize how far back the trouble really began. In 1968, Canada was swept with a madness affectionately called “Trudeaumania,” and a new prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, was swept into office with an interest in making major transformational changes to the Canadian circumstance. Though his ambitions were greater than what the political environment in Canada in the 1970s and 1980s could tolerate, the elder Trudeau shifted policies and government institutions strongly into the radical model championed even today by some of

We are rapidly coming to understand this fact now, but it always bears repeating. Interestingly, one aspect of the fraud of DEI isn’t new at all. It’s an old Communist standard common both to Mao’s regime in China and the Soviet Union before him, as well as elsewhere, surely. That said, welcome back to my Book Club episodes of

“We are what we say and do. The way we speak and are spoken to help shape us into the people we become. Through words and other actions, we build ourselves in a world that is building us. That world addresses us to produce the different identities we carry forward in life: men are addressed differently than are women, people of color differently than whites, elite students differently than those from working families. Yet, though language is fateful in teaching us what kind of people to become and what kind of society to make, discourse is not destiny. We can

Lindsay delivered a short, fiery speech in which he condemned and denounced the United Nations as an evil organization, rejecting its ambition to claim any

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 96 Dialectical Leftism doesn’t just do the old Marxist thing anymore. There’s a new dialectical game in town that allows Marxists worldwide to transcend classical Marxism, including in the Chinese Communist Party over the last few decades. That method is called “reflexivity,” as it was outlined as a so-called “shoelace dialectic” by George Soros in his famous book The Alchemy of Finance. Host James Lindsay detailed the Soros method recently in a long-form podcast on the New Discourses Podcast platform, and here, he summarizes the essential points in short form for the New Discourses Bullets. Join him for this

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 95 To be successful at pushing back at Woke Marxism, you have to know some Woke Marxism and know it pretty well. It’s not enough to have a tacit sense of what “Woke” or its programs are about. You have to be somewhat knowledgeable. Leftists are extremely good at discrediting their opposition by making them look dumb (or ignorant, or uninformed), evil, or crazy, and they will spring questions on unsuspecting activists to create this image. Preventing them the easy entry against you, your work, and your message that is undermining your intellectual authority on these

Titled “Meaning and the Necessity of Theology,” it argues that theology plays an important meta-philosophical role in that it binds (or grounds) and orients a variety of philosophical programs, ideally toward God, or at least toward the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. I also gave a talk
