The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 127 Leftism, including Marxism, isĀ operational. It isĀ strategic. It knows what itā€™s doing and how to do it. It might look crazy, but thatā€™s deliberate. In fact, Leftists proudly publish and disseminate activist guides for their agenda like the bookĀ Beautiful TroubleĀ that spell out for anyone how to do ā€œtransformativeā€ activism through deliberate and strategic troublemaking. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay ties together three activist principles fromĀ Beautiful TroubleĀ with a large number of relevant contemporary examples to make clear how Marxist Leftism works and is working in our current …

By Ted Rau for Enlivening Edge Magazine [Enlivenning Edge is happy to be an affiliate ecosystem partner recommending this conference.] Letā€™s play good news and bad news. The good news is that Iā€™m seeing more and more self-management and trust-ful and leader-ful organizations emerge, or traditional organizations that include more patterns of shared responsibility. Whatā€™s the bad news? Iā€™m worried. Iā€™m worried because I think the movement has significant gaps. Let me explain. Every organization consists of team-level and organization-level functions. (See, for example the Viable Systems Model) The team level functions do the major work of the organizationā€” producing …

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 120 Woke Marxism is an invasive, subversive force that seeks to usurp the authority of the society it infects and transform it into something under its own control. This tells us quite a bit about it and offers us an unlikely glimpse at a comprehensive strategy to fighting it. In this off-beat episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay describesĀ a broad, comprehensive strategy for fighting Woke Marxism by analyzing it from the perspective of traditional five-element theory. Join him to get a ton of ideas for useful things to do. …

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 53 When you understand that virtually everything with Woke Marxism is (a) impossible and (b) a strategic provocation, it leads you to think about engaging with it differently. (And engage with it we must!) A powerful technique for breaking free of Woke magic spells and manipulation is simply to take a step back andĀ name the dynamic. This is a powerful technique from mediation and negotiation that can break through many stuck situations, but itā€™s crucially important to understand how it must be applied to defeat dialectical traps and advances from the Woke. Join host James Lindsay …

The last three blog posts provided the core scaffolding for what I have been calling the Estuarine framework (pending getting a proper name for it). Iā€™ve got a lot of work to flesh out the summary I provided in the last post, and also connect it with earlier material including a key post on the subject of learning in anthro-complexity. Ā But overall I am increasingly thinking it is as, if not more important, than Cynefin. Ā In the main, all approaches to strategy derive in some way or other from Military planning based on political objectives. Ā That said the various non-military …

Iā€™ve got into the habit of tweeting a summit picture from each Wainwright summit as a part of my challenge to complete all 214 in less than 40 days. For those interested Iā€™ve summarised the current status at the foot of this post. Ā I have a clear end date – my 68th birthday on the 1st April 2022, a constraint (no more than 40 days) but within that I have buffer stock that can allow for weather and some injury. Ā Also on each day I have exit options, target time to each summit and Iā€™m constantly monitoring time, weather, ground …

Thanks to a sudden slip on greasy rock descending from Red Screes Iā€™m home a couple of days early. Ā The absence of cartilage under both patellas, managed through kinesiology tape and strength and conditioning classes, means any fall or slip (and you canā€™t avoid them) can leave me with a week or moreā€™s ibuprofen and icepack recovery. Ā It was a real pain (literally and figuratively) as I was moving at pace thanks to working on balance and taping over the previous month and looking forward to several days, so it was a depressing setback and after two days of attempting …

This post follows on from the September series which looked at the whole issue of the learning organisation, and I have no intention of getting involved in the debates about who first created that term. Ā Iā€™ll say now that one major error was that the idea of a learning organisation, which was the subtitle of ā€œThe Fifth Disciplineā€ transmogrified into The Learning Organisation and became an end its own right. Ā This is one of the general issues with most popular forms of systems thinking in that they confuse an emergent property with a manageable cause. Ā In fact, learning is an …
