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 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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 69 Struggle session season isn’t over. Even though we’re starting to understand what they are and how to deal with them, they’re still coming, sometimes with very high stakes. The point of a struggle session, ultimately, is to get you to confess to made-up crimes on contrived terms that you and others will adopt as a result of confessing. The hard truth of the struggle session is that there’s no coming back from capitulating to one. People can understand the pressures and the evil of the dynamic, but you still show yourself and those in your corner

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 125 The “Net Zero” and “Sustainability” movements, which no one outside of captured institutions and minds particularly likes or trusts, is advancing to a new initiative, whether we like it or not. That initiative is every bit as bad as it sounds: Degrowth. The idea is that the West has grown too big to be sustainable, so it is time to back off from growth, or to move “beyond growth,” to draw another of their brands. This is little more than the controlled demolition of Western Civilization on an economic level, and
