OnlySubs Episode 73: The Woke Flip-out Test is 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 …

OnlySubs Episode 72: Communism Is Not an Economic Theory is now available exclusively for New Discourses contributors on the following platforms: Locals Patreon Subscribestar YouTube Members ThinkSpot Communism is widely regarded as an economic theory. This is not so. While a communistic economic theory is possible in one where the community shares equal ownership of all goods and property in society, Communism as it derives from Marxism merely uses this idea as a pretext and a vision to push for what it really is: a revolutionary theory. The whole purpose of Communist ideology is to agitate for and eventually produce the Revolution …

Why Systems Change Without Social Justice Will Never WorkIntroduction“Game B” colloquially refers to a novel discourse and sense-making community framing a needed shift from default human history (“Game A”) to a new mode of behavior and social organization that does not reproduce any of the generator functions of existential risk (from over-consumption to nuclear bombs, etc.) of our past and current system; so we can make a collective move ‘from A to B’, so to speak. I’m for it, in principle. But Game B is a predecessor of the “Intellectual Dark Web” (IDW), which I opposed, and has some of the …

The Revolution Will Not Be Boring*This article was originally posted on Emerge. See Parts 1, 2, 3, 4“
 in America, we think of rebellion as this very sexy thing and it involves action and force and looks good. My guess is the forms of rebellion that will end up changing anything meaningfully here will be very quiet and very individual. And probably not all that interesting to look at from the outside. I’m now hoping for less interesting, rather than more interesting. Violence is interesting, and horrible corruption and scandals and rattling sabers and talking about war and demonizing a billion people …
