OnlySubs Episode 112: Reciprocal Submission and the Impossibility of Socialism┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot Socialism doesn’t work. One key reason why is because it requires the voluntary mutual submission of every individual in society to every other individual in society. Everyone has to put everyone else’s needs ahead of their own. There’s effectively no worse way to organize a social or economic system. In this quirky episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I talk about how complex and impossible such an arrangement of mutual …

OnlySubs Episode 111: Stop Wanting Fake Friends┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot One of the main ways we got into this Woke Marxist mess in the first place is that people started to care way too much about what their fake friends think of them. Maybe it’s an artifact of social media; maybe it’s a result of the transition from an analog life to a social media-equipped digital one; maybe it’s just sad. In any case, it’s toxic. Stop caring what fake friends think of you. Stop …

OnlySubs Episode 110: Rejoice in the Day the Lord Has Made┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot Psalm 118:24 reads “This is the day the Lord has made; rejoice and be glad in it.” This is one of the most famous psalms in the Bible, and virtually everyone has heard it. I recently had the good fortune to hear someone describe it as a┬ácommand, though, and I found that profound. As a result, I wanted to share it with you. Join me in this episode of my subscribers-only …

OnlySubs Episode 109: The Defining Ignorance of the Left┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot If we boil it down to brass tacks, there’s one key defining characteristic that places people on the Left, and that’s the desire to do away with all hierarchy. Where does this desire come from? I would argue that its precursor is obvious: it’s an inability to understand when hierarchy is legitimate, and therefore a belief that all hierarchy is unjust and unfair. When combined with an inherent and inflated belief in their …

OnlySubs Episode 108: ESG Is for Everyone!┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot ESG is a scam. The Environmental, Social, and Governance standards set by some of the most corrupt and powerful institutions on this planet allow them to run the entire professional world like a cartel, especially its corporate sector. As a result, ESG is for everyone! Literally. I recently found out that even to work as a server in some restaurants requires people to go through hour upon hour upon hour of┬áESG training, on one’s own …

OnlySubs Episode 107: Does Academia Have Ideological Rabies?┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot About this time four years ago, I traveled to Portland, Oregon, not only to inspect the behaviors of canines in urban dog parks but also to meet up with Peter Boghossian, Helen Pluckrose, and Mike Nayna as the day approached to tell the world about the Grievance Studies Affair. After a few observational trips to the dog park, we all headed over to Bret Weinstein’s house to tell him and his wife, Heather Heying, …

OnlySubs Episode 106: They’re Not Idiots┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar Substack YouTube Members Thinkspot I hear people say “Idiots!” all the time when discussing the actions of the ruling class. That’s a mistake. They’re not idiots. They’re malicious. Recognizing that stupidity alone cannot explain their behavior is extremely important to understanding what’s going on in the world around us today. In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I explain how Hanlon’s Razor (never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity) is an escape hatch …

Drawing back to the previous World War for inspiration and insight, in 1941, the …

OnlySubs Episode 104: Making Oppression Invisible┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot A mainstay of Marxist activism, as a part of “consciousness raising,” is what is billed as “making oppression visible.” Marxists tend to think that ideology and other structural forces of society obscure oppression from people’s consciousness until it’s “made visible” through their activism and the┬áprocess of conscientization. Of course, as with all things Marxist, not only does this cut both ways, though, it also obscures (through projection) the fact that Marxists are always┬ácausing┬átremendous amounts of oppression, which …

Everyone who follows or pays attention to my work will be fully aware of the most famous of these laws: the Iron Law of Woke Projection, which has been┬áwidely┬ádiscussed. It never misses. There are, in fact, other rules of thumb about Woke Marxist behavior that are so consistent to merit …
