The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 138 The United Nations is a religious organization, and the religion behind it is a cult. More specifically, it is a theosophical cult based on an “evolutionary” vision for mankind that it wants to control. This fact is revealed in a strange book by late UN big-wig and creator of the World Core Curriculum (Common Core in the United States), Robert Muller, from about 25 years ago titled 2000 Ideas for a Better World, which he published in four volumes in the lead-up to the year 2000 (links below). Muller delivered this book and

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 133 Classical Liberalism is in trouble. We can all see that. With it, the nations that have incorporated it as their operating model are also in trouble. We can all see that too. Today, post-liberal movements on both the Left and the putative Right see these problems and are calling for Classical Liberalism’s demise. But do they see the problems we face clearly and accurately? James Lindsay, host of the New Discourses Podcast, thinks they do not, and in this episode, he breaks down what they’re missing and the major problems Classical

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 132 The American system, Classical Liberalism, is under attack. In fact, it is at risk of failing. Its attacks come from both the Left and the Right, and they succeed, as Solzhenitsyn put it, “because we do not love freedom enough.” If we truly love liberty, as we should, we would understand the philosophical underpinnings of our system like they’re second nature. As is evidenced from the attacks upon it, though, few truly understand what Classical Liberalism is and what it believes. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 124 What is the true nature of Being? That’s one of those “big” questions that we probably cannot answer. Related to it is another huge question: how should we be disposed toward the fact of Being? That’s a fundamentally religious, or even pre-religious, question, and it’s important to answer. While we may not know the true nature of Being itself, of all of existence, we can say something about the mood of our relationship to it. In this philosophical episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay explores four essential dispositions

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 61 Why are Gnostic cults so tempting? Why do people get sucked into them? It’s not because Gnostics go around telling people they’re wrong. It’s because they go around telling people they’re limited. Your beliefs, maybe in science, spirituality, Christianity, politics, or whatever, aren’t wrong; they’re low-level. The Gnostics hold themselves out as people who know more about whatever you’re into than you do, and they explain their superiority as being “liberated” from the limitations “THEY” (your teachers, pastors, etc.) are placing upon your knowledge. They don’t want you to know these secrets, but we do. That’s the Gnostic temptation. Host James Lindsay
