I recently read a document released by the CIA in 2005 that describes the New Left and Herbert Marcuse’s influence on college campuses. What it reveals is extremely relevant to what’s happening on college campuses today. “Marx, the god; Marcuse, his prophet; Mao, his sword.” In June of 1968, the Current Digest of the Soviet Press released a scathing article, calling University of California San Diego professor Herbert Marcuse a “false prophet.” As a Soviet entity, the Current Digest set out to annihilate Marcuse’s “decommunized Marxism,” for obvious reasons. Marcuse had abandoned “vulgar” Marxism and the USSR’s bureaucratic and administrative

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

On March 29, 2023, James Lindsay delivered a short address before a conference at the European Union Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. This speech has been widely recognized as making the nature of the Neo-Marxist Cultural Revolution engulfing the West extremely clear, with a sharp warning to Europe not to follow in the footsteps of the Anglophone countries. In the two months since, this speech has gone viral and received incredible praise and feedback for its clarity and ability to articulate the true nature of the so-called “culture war” or “Woke” phenomenon threatening the West. Join him to understand what’s happening

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
