The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 100 We all know academia is in trouble. In fact, we’re not even sure it can be saved. To put it simply, the university is dying. To be sure, it’s a strange death, however, because the university is in some sense going back to its roots, returning to being theological seminaries, though in a completely new religion. That religion is the transformative religion of Dialectical Leftism, and its materialist watchword in the 21st century is “Sustainability.” In this New Discourses Podcast series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through a 2022 UNESCO …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 98 Schools all across the United States and wider Western world are rapidly incorporating Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) into all aspects of the educational experience and environment. Can we trust it? There are excellent reasons why we shouldn’t. Everyone seems to be pushing it, though. Not just our state and federal government, and governments throughout the West and the SEL parent organization, CASEL, but also huge organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), United Nations (through UNESCO), the OECD and World Bank, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and USAID, among others. Why? In …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 94 Paulo Freire is a Brazilian Marxist who is responsible for “Marxifying” education, thereby ruining it. In effect, what he did was created a Marxist Theory of being educated, and what this did, in turn, was create a Marxist Theory of knowledge and knowing. Who gets to be considered a knower? On what grounds? To whose benefit? Who decides? All of these questions are to be answered on (Critical) Marxist grounds. One result of this transition, in addition to his approach to education, is that he opened the door to a true Marxism of stupidity. You see, as …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 93 Redefine the words; redefine the society. That’s the basic idea of “critique” and the way so much of Marxist activism proceeds. Recently, James Lindsay explained this phenomenon in an essay on New Discourses with relation to three key terms that allow a subversion of society: “inclusion,” “democracy,” and, most concerningly, “citizenship.” In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through and elaborates on his own essay on this topic.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 92 We have to talk about Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). It’s not the first time it’s been addressed here on the New Discourses Podcast, but the full picture hasn’t been painted for you yet. Social-Emotional Learning is evil and must be stopped. It isn’t a nice little program to help at-risk kids deal with the difficulties of learning. It’s the central pillar of a nefarious attempt to remake and control society. Host James Lindsay walks you through a number of sources promoting and describing Social-Emotional Learning in unprecedented depth, breadth, and clarity in …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 91 The churches are under attack, not just from without but also from within. Marxist subversion has been brought deeply into them, and they are already falling. The model for how this is being accomplished mirrors the model used to steal education, so it’s little surprise that the Brazilian Marxist educator Paulo Freire is at the bottom of it. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay picks up out of the Critical Education Series in which he has been reading most of Freire’s landmark 1985 book, The Politics of Education: Culture, …
