With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 3 of 3 Leftism has a battle logic: dialectical political warfare. They have used it in the past and are using it now to launch a cultural revolution against the West. The question before us, since we find ourselves in the midst of one, is once one has started, is it possible to stop a cultural revolution, and if so, how? This is, in fact, the most pressing and important question in the world. In this lecture, Dr. James Lindsay of New Discourses begins to provide an answer. We can learn their battle

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 67 Given recent events in the Middle East, in which Woke Marxists throughout the world have indicated their total alignment with Palestine against Israel even in light of atrocities, the idea of “decolonization” is back in the center stage. Academics and activists across the West are not only celebratory of the violence in Israel; they are also mocking the general public for failing to realize that “decolonization” is intrinsically a violent, brutal process. What’s going on here? Where do these ideas come from? The answer is that these ideas come from a postcolonialist named Frantz Fanon,

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 2 of 3 Leftist activism is happy to take direct wins whenever it can get them, but that’s not always possible. When it can’t get direct wins through the front door, it is also more than happy to get its wins through the back door by exploiting what we can call an action-reaction dynamic. As an act of dialectical political warfare, which is their battle logic, Leftist agitators will provoke a reaction, control the framing around that reaction to a watching audience, and use the reaction as justification to advance their cause. This

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 127 Leftism, including Marxism, is operational. It is strategic. It knows what it’s doing and how to do it. It might look crazy, but that’s deliberate. In fact, Leftists proudly publish and disseminate activist guides for their agenda like the book Beautiful Trouble that spell out for anyone how to do “transformative” activism through deliberate and strategic troublemaking. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay ties together three activist principles from Beautiful Trouble with a large number of relevant contemporary examples to make clear how Marxist Leftism works and is working in our current

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 1 of 3 The Left moves operationally and according to a battle logic known as “dialectical political warfare.” The dialectic is the operating system of the Left, and it works by marrying a truth to a lie. Political warfare is a method of conducting warfare in which political means are used with hostile intent to get an enemy to behave in a desired fashion—propaganda is a great example. Perhaps the greatest dialectical political warfare tactician in human history is the monstrous figure of Mao Zedong, Communist dictator of China until his death in

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 63 What is “degrowth”? Well, that’s simple. It’s not just the newest brand name for the “Net Zero” environmentalist scam; it’s Communism rebranded and newly organized for the 21st century. That is, it is death. It is the fulfillment of Critical Marxist Herbert Marcuse’s vision for a synthetic fusion of capitalism and socialism outlined in One-dimensional Man and An Essay on Liberation (pdf) from the 1960s. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down the idea of “degrowth,” sharing from a socialist magazine, an unlikely article in a physics publication, and a new book that claims “Degrowth Communism” is the

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 62 There is a psychological phenomenon called “reactance” that is triggered when someone is convinced they’re likely to lose liberties and freedoms they currently enjoy. It’s a powerful effect that motivates action and forces people to take a side, usually against the perceived threat to their liberty. Woke manipulators know this and use it frequently. They explain that their enemies, usually members of a free society, are “fascists” who want to “limit the rights” of some vulnerable group. The goal is to trigger activation through reactance to join up in solidarity with the threatened group. You’ll

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 51 How can we fight a tyrannical movement trying to take over our society or mislead people into traps? One key thing to do is to understand how people relate to such movements and organize our messaging and activity in a way that targets them for where they are. Adopting a model from a recent talk, in this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay discusses five primary (and a few secondary) dispositions with regard to tyrannical movements and how to target messaging and activity toward each of them. This should help people fighting the
