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

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 130 The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. The issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution. This is a core maxim of Marxist activist thought, and it explains so much. In the early 1990s, the French Postmodernist philosopher Jean Beaudrillard put it another way, though, in a sense. He provocatively published a book with the title The Gulf War Did Not Take Place. What Baudrillard meant is that the Gulf War was an event that happened in the Persian Gulf, but what we call the “Gulf War” was

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 129 Degrowth is a death cult. Degrowth means starving while you freeze to death in the dark. That said, Degrowth Communism is something more. Specifically, it’s something that should be called “Degrowth Distributism,” and it’s the overarching plan of the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Health Organization, and the rest operating under the brand name of the “well-being economy.” In this long and detailed episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay takes apart the Marxist manipulations of the key words, “scarcity,” “wealth,” and “abundance,” necessary to lure the world

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 68 One of Marxists’ favorite words to project onto their enemies is “mystification.” Everyone, they insist, who isn’t on board with their twisted program is “mystified” about the true nature of reality, which they have, of course, discovered and delineated in unique clarity (in their own estimation, anyway). As we know, the Iron Law of Woke Projection never misses. The fact is that Marxist ideologies mystify their targets. That is, they mug people of their ability to apprehend and discern reality through tricky arguments that work a lot like an illusionist’s trick or a wizard’s spell.

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 65 One of the hottest topics in education (and beyond) right now is “resilience.” Youth mental health initiatives are being launched and entrenched all over the country, not just through school counseling but also through Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) initiatives, and their goal almost always includes “fostering emotional resilience.” What is meant by “resilience” in the Woke Marxist context, though? We know it must mean something. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay draws from a UNESCO source and explains that “resilience” refers to the opposite of “fragility,” which means taking your brainwashing well. Join him to

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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 64 Capitalism is a Marxist creation. It sounds crazy to say that, but Marxists don’t mean competitive market economies or even free-market economies when they say “capitalism.” They mean an overarching ideology of limitless capital accumulation as the fundamental organizing principle of society, which most people who promote “capitalism” wouldn’t recognize as what they mean by the term at all. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay shows you in their own words what Marxists mean by the word “capitalism,” which is a revealing and ridiculous strawman of market economics. Join him to learn all about

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 126 Can’t anything just be normal and organic? It doesn’t appear so. Unfortunately, in addition to having to deal with a Communist Cultural Revolution in America, we also have to deal with the rising reaction it deliberately provokes. That forces us to have to fight a two-front war if our desire is to preserve liberty and defend and maintain the United States of America. Not everyone, even on the “conservative” side of things, wants to do that, though, and this brings us back to the growing movement branding itself “Christian Nationalism.” What is

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 125 The “Net Zero” and “Sustainability” movements, which no one outside of captured institutions and minds particularly likes or trusts, is advancing to a new initiative, whether we like it or not. That initiative is every bit as bad as it sounds: Degrowth. The idea is that the West has grown too big to be sustainable, so it is time to back off from growth, or to move “beyond growth,” to draw another of their brands. This is little more than the controlled demolition of Western Civilization on an economic level, and
