New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 12 Two of the most infamous figures of the 20th century are two of its most notorious Marxist dictators: Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong. Each had his own methods. Speaking broadly, Lenin’s Bolshevik approach could be considered top-down, imposed by government and its seized industries, and Mao’s “Marxism-Leninism with Chinese Characteristics” might be considered bottom-up, a youth rebellion, and inside-out, a cultural revolution ushered in by his radicalized youth. The most infamous Neo-Communist figure of the early 21st century will be Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, who has figured out how to combine …

OnlySubs Episode 98: On the Sovereignty of Logos is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot Sometimes here on the subscribers-only podcast (that’s James Lindsay OnlySubs), I like to get pretty deep and serious on things I’m still kind of thinking through. This is one of those episodes. I want to dive pretty deeply into the idea of why there’s almost no capacity to communicate across the divide between Marxists (Woke, especially, or otherwise) and virtually everyone else, and it comes down to something far deeper than political disagreement. There are …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 81 Thinking Sex Series, Part 3 of 3 In the previous two episodes of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through the first two thirds of Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay, “Thinking Sex,” widely regarded as the first essay in Queer Theory. In it, as Rubin’s subtitle indicates, “Notes for a Radical Theory of the Politics of Sexuality,” she takes feminism (especially sex-negative radical feminism) to task for being insufficiently radical as a politics of sexuality. In fact, she accuses it (not entirely wrongly) of being resoundingly conservative with regard to sex …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 11 One of the most common words we run into today thanks to the incredible spread of Woke Marxism is “critical.” This is because Woke Marxism comes out of the Critical Theory tradition, which is the tool of a mid-20th century Marxist project called “Critical Marxism.” We run into this term especially often in education, where the Woke Marxist objective is to use the pun on “critical” that exists between “critical thinking” and “Critical Theory” to advance their agenda under a positive-sounding cover. Luckily, they explain themselves plainly too. In this quick New Discourses Bullets summary, …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 80 Thinking Sex Series, Part 2 of 3 In the previous episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay presented the first third of the first Queer Theory paper to have been written, Gayle Rubin’s shocking 1984 essay “Thinking Sex.” In this episode, he continues with a second part of Rubin’s essay in which it becomes clear that Queer Theory is all about breaking down all boundaries and categories between acceptable and unacceptable sexual behavior using explicitly Marxist-style analysis (Queer Theory is Queer Marxism). Before getting to this section of the …

In the Marxist literature, you run into the words “reality,” “realities,” and “actual” all the time. This is no mistake. Marxists believe they, and they alone, have hacked the system and come to the only true or scientific understanding of reality. Everyone else sees reality through an ideological distortion, and they can use their “critical” methods to see through it. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, James Lindsay cuts through their mystification and makes it clear that when Marxists talk about “reality,” what they mean is their own weird and dangerous misinterpretation of it and nothing else. Misinformation and information …

Stop. Just stop. It’s not good for you. It’s not helping. It’s not research. It’s not even making you more aware of what’s going on in the world. So stop it! Doomscrolling is a term for fairly obsessively scrolling through social media or search engine results looking for more and more reasons to believe the world is falling apart, and it is worse than useless.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 79 Thinking Sex Series, Part 1 of 3 People have very rapidly realized, whether in Groomer Schools, marketing, or so many other corners of society that we’ve been suckered into supporting Queer Theory under the banner of a gay and lesbian civil rights movement. We’ve also figured out very quickly that Queer Theory is a branch of Identity Marxism: Queer Marxism, which takes “normalcy” as its special form of bourgeois property to abolish through (Queer) class struggle. Where, though, did Queer Theory come from? It is relatively widely accepted that the first …

Probably the most influential Marxist thinker of the 20th century was the Critical Marxist Herbert Marcuse. His ideas were so influential that I commonly find myself saying “we live in Herbert Marcuse’s world” today. Virtually everything crazy you see going on, perhaps except in schools, thanks to Woke Marxism and its corporate partners can be traced back neatly to Herbert Marcuse’s neo-Marxist Theory, whether “Repressive Tolerance,” the turn to Identity Marxism, or even the push for “sustainability” at the highest levels of global governance (for example, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset). Join James Lindsay …
