Climate change researcher, sustainable development expert, and activist Gail Hochachka works on the front lines of climate change research, asking—and answering—questions like: How does the way we make meaning, at all our different stages of development, relate to the ways we act on climate change? How can we foster more engagement with climate change? Is climate action scalable? And how are we going to show up for the people who are facing the greatest impacts? This post was originally published on Integral Life.

With Liberty & Justice For All, Session 1 of 3 The Left moves operationally and according to a battle logic known as “dialectical political warfare.” The dialectic is the operating system of the Left, and it works by marrying a truth to a lie. Political warfare is a method of conducting warfare in which political means are used with hostile intent to get an enemy to behave in a desired fashion—propaganda is a great example. Perhaps the greatest dialectical political warfare tactician in human history is the monstrous figure of Mao Zedong, Communist dictator of China until his death in

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

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 122 We are halfway through a plot to seize control of the world. It may seem like a conspiracy theory, but it’s placed awfully prominently, and everywhere, to be such a thing. The United Nations Agenda 2030 is a sweeping program to take control of our entire world. It launched in 2015 with an ambitious “17 Goals to Transform our World” and 169 targets to hit by the year 2030. That was eight years ago, and we can get a sense of how it’s going. Badly. Tyrannically. Farcically. Reading from the Agenda

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 116 You have probably heard of “Net Zero,” the unrealistically ambitious target of having no net greenhouse gas emissions by some point in the relatively near future (2030, maybe 2050 at the latest). A report filed in 2019 by the prestigious government-funded UK organization of engineers and scientists, UK FIRES, thinks Net Zero is not enough and is pushing for an insanely aggressive program called “Absolute Zero,” absolutely zero emissions by 2050. What does it entail? Among other things, no flights, no container shipping, no red meat consumption, no cement, no new steel production, and no

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 50 Woke Marxism is a cult. In being a cult, it operates like an “initiate society,” and the initiation into the cult is largely but not wholly accomplished through its deliberate misuse of language. As it turns out, this is a pretty consistent feature of cults, especially gnostic cults like Woke Marxism is. In technical language, gnostic cults are esoteric cults, and their language often has two meanings at once. One of these meanings is the everyday meaning they want you to think of when they use words like diversity, inclusion, belonging, sustainability, and so on: the exoteric meaning. The

In that Marxism is a theology that gives birth to a religion of Communism, it has to also have a process of conversion. That process was not well-developed under Karl Marx, but it grew over the intervening century and a half and came to be known as “conscientization.” As Marxism entered its cultural turn in the 1920s, Theorists like Gyorgy Lukacs recognized that “class consciousness” unfolds in stages and is educable, though the last steps remained elusive and mysterious. By the 1980s, Theorists like Paulo Freire developed the process of conscientization further into a critical and even utopian consciousness that

I just re-read Birthing the Design School Next Year (in 2021) that was written more than two years ago.

This week I address a listener’s question about a fascinating subculture arising in the environmental movement: the “post-doomers”, people who, as she writes, “hold the idea that the collapse of civilization as we know it is already well underway, is unstoppable, and will be felt by us here in Comfortable Land through disruption of many kinds in the not-too-distant future.” Post-doomers find meaning in surrendering to this inevitable doom, much as a hospice patient might find peace – even joy – in the acceptance of their death. Or that their loved ones might find in reconciliation and morning. I’m not
