OnlySubs Episode 82: Wokeness Rejects Limiting Principles┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot We’ve discussed┬ábefore┬áhow every Woke slope is slippery. That is, we’ve discussed how a commitment to social constructivism prevents Woke agendas from ever being able to say “this is far enough.” In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I hit this idea again with somewhat different framing. Specifically, I explain why Wokeness not only lacks any limiting principle on its activism but also, far more concerningly, is intrinsically disposed against any possible limiting principle. …

OnlySubs Episode 81: The Marxist Definition of Transition┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot The website┬ámarxists.org┬áis an absolute treasure trove for people who want to understand Marxism and how Marxists think about the world. In addition to having tons of primary sources there (available for free, completely on brand for Marxists), they also have a fascinating glossary of terms that is very insightful. In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I dive into one of these terms:┬átransition. Join me to hear this and understand even more …

OnlySubs Episode 80: The Southern Baptist Convention and the Subordination of Scripture┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot In April of 2019, the famously conservative Southern Baptist Convention adopted an infamous resolution, Resolution 9, bringing into the Convention both Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality “as an analytical tool subordinate to Scripture.” This is, at best, a fundamental misunderstanding of Woke Marxism (thus CRT/I), which are explicitly designed to identify anything they are put in subordination to, subvert that thing, and then occupy a position of dominance over it (which …

OnlySubs Episode 79: Conserving the Means of Progress┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot Progress is something almost everyone looks at in a positive light, but progressivism is a nightmare that can’t achieve it. Why? Conservatism is usually put in direct opposition to progress, but this doesn’t seem to be what happens in reality. Why? In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I talk about how genuine progress is made through conserving the principles that enable it. This is, in other words, what Benjamin Franklin meant …

OnlySubs Episode 78: Questioning Digital Dependence┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot It’s a little strange and a little personal to talk about, I suppose, but I had a weird dream recently that I wanted to share with you. I dreamed I was out in the wilderness, maybe the desert somewhere, and suddenly realized I didn’t have my smartphone with me. At first, I panicked. Then I relaxed, remembering that until quite recently, nobody had smartphones, and people usually found their way just fine nonetheless. In this episode of …

To get access to all past and future episodes, consider becoming a contributor on one of the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members Thinkspot On January 1 of this year, the New York Times told us that “Every Day is January 6 Now.” That’s obviously absurd, hyperreal, pseudo-real, but it’s also an echo from the past. While many have rightly made the comparison between that farce and the Reichstag Fire perpetrated by the National Socialists in order to grab power, I was immediately …

OnlySubs Episode 76: Marxists Are Not Hypocrites┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members ThinkSpot People are highly attuned to pointing out hypocrisy, and so the blatant double standards the Woke and other Marxists set up for themselves is a tantalizing bait. The thing is, the Woke (and other Marxists) aren’t hypocrites at all. They believe themselves superior. For them, “do as I say, not as I do” isn’t a shortcoming of character but something they believe they have the hard-earned right to demand of others, whom they see as intrinsically …

Besides being a great place to live and a state filled with great people (many of whom are extremely based), Tennessee has one of the most based state constitutions in the entire United States. In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, I felt compelled to share a little of the very based beginning of the Tennessee state constitution with you, and in particular the …

OnlySubs Episode 74: On the Manufacture of Fake Consensus┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members ThinkSpot The Woke do not have a popular ideology, but they’re very good at creating the illusion that they have massive support. In fact, they’re experts at generating the appearance of consensus among all good, reasonable, smart, and sane people even when only a tiny fraction of people support their agenda. This manufactured illusion of support is crucial to the Woke strategy, and it is effected by swarming on social media, astroturfed support campaigns, flashmobs, …

OnlySubs Episode 73: The Woke Flip-out Test┬áis now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members ThinkSpot The Woke have a tell. It’s probably their greatest weakness. You can use this tell to distinguish between useful idiots, who are mostly going along with the ideology out of fear or confusion, and full-on Woke activists, who are implementing and accelerating the agenda. I call it the “Woke Flip-out Test.” Put simply, when challenged, Woke activists will always overreact. They’ll swarm you on social media and give away that you’re “over the target.” They’ll attack …
