The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 123 The American Library Association (ALA) is a fully captured institution headed by a Queer Marxist organizer named Emily Drabinski. That means it is time to do what we should have done a long time ago: break away from the American Library Association. The state of Montana has already done this at the state level, and other states should follow. Some already are. Local municipalities and districts, including school districts, should do so as well, as soon as possible. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay makes it

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’s 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 “stakeholders.” That’s 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. 57 In Mao Zedong’s CCP-run China, citizens were bullied and brainwashed into accepting “socialist discipline” by the Communist authorities by means of a devastating tool called the “struggle session.” Struggle sessions are nothing short of a form of psychological torture achieved through social means. They are unbelievably difficult to go through, and they can and will polarize and divide an organization while nullifying its best members. They must be understood and resisted at every turn if we are going to stop the American Cultural Revolution. In this long episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 56 One of the best things about reading Marxist literature is that they almost always tell you their weaknesses if you pay attention. A huge focus in the literature of Western Marxism has been on the fact that Western societies don’t have Marxist revolutions because they are stable societies. This allows us to develop a kind of guiding light for fighting against Woke Marxism today: stability prevents revolutions. In practice, this means that anywhere we see instability and destabilization, we should work to counter it and create stability, especially economic, social, and psychological stability the Woke Marxists will use

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 121 Sex ed has come a long way, even if you don’t realize it. What we used to think of as sex education has been slowly being transformed into Comprehensive Sexuality Education, an institutional monstrosity stemming from a partnership between UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) and the International Planned Parenthood Foundation. Yes, that Planned Parenthood… in schools. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, the fifth in the “Groomer Schools” mini-series, host James Lindsay pulls back the veil on the pillars of Comprehensive Sexuality Education by reading from a

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 55 In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson famously used a curious phrase to describe man’s fundamentally inalienable rights: “among these, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” What many do not know is that Jefferson was riffing off and augmenting a similar formulation from John Locke, who argued that we have inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. Locke further argued that our right to property is meaningful in that the free use of our property is a means to enable our pursuit of happiness, thus explaining the meaning in Jefferson’s phrase. In this episode

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 120 Woke Marxism is an invasive, subversive force that seeks to usurp the authority of the society it infects and transform it into something under its own control. This tells us quite a bit about it and offers us an unlikely glimpse at a comprehensive strategy to fighting it. In this off-beat episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay describes a broad, comprehensive strategy for fighting Woke Marxism by analyzing it from the perspective of traditional five-element theory. Join him to get a ton of ideas for useful things to do.
