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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 70 “Diversity” and “Inclusion” don’t mean what they sound like they mean. People are catching on to this all around the world, but we need to go deeper. It’s necessary not just to know something is wrong with these ideas and their implementation but also to know how and why they’re wrong. Ultimately, this means grasping the Left’s Woke Marxist mindset, namely the idea of cultural hegemony. You see, “Diverse” means “outside of the culturally hegemonic viewpoint,” and “Inclusion” means “including and protecting counter-hegemonic perspectives and the people who promote them.” Understanding that the Left always

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.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 128 Woke Marxism has no limiting principles. It is, in fact, openly hostile to any such boundary on its own madness. As a result, it possesses no mechanisms to prevent the implementation of the worst possible ideas, as we often see, including in the education of young children. We have already seen this with drag queens, sex, sexuality, pleasure-based sex education, divisive Critical Race Theory in education, “gender affirming care” and transition, and who knows how much else. Now we confront “sanism” as a prejudice keeping the insane out of the classrooms

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 66 It is a persistent myth and common lie that Queer Education (Queer Pedagogy) is meant to in some way help “LGBTQ kids,” whether by fostering empathy, increasing visibility, providing role models, or whatever else. This is blatantly not true. In fact, it’s blatantly not true in their own words. “Queer” is not an identity at all, and it has nothing in principle to do with any sexuality, gender dysphoria (or sex confusion), or any other real thing. Queer is explicitly and intentionally an oppositional political stance. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay goes over

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

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

Woke Marxism undermines law, and for it to succeed, it must pervert law to advance its own ends. So far, it has been extremely successful at this, from the Critical Legal Theory movement in the 1970s and 1980s through Critical Race Theory and outright legal and judicial activism. If our remaining judiciary remains unaware of the infiltration and subversion, we will probably lose our country. If it wakes up and discharges its duty more… judiciously… we can save our country the same way they’re trying to take it from us: without firing a shot, as the saying goes. Such is

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
