The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 131 Medical Lysenkoism is the application of ideological, specifically Communist, doctrine to medicine, and it will kill tens of millions, maybe more, if it continues being put into practice.

In fact, not only are all the obvious manifestations of Medical Lysenkoism apparent, but also the American Medical Association (among others) have taken up an explicit commitment to Medical Lysenkoism under the brand name “health equity.” In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James

During COP 26, as he was on route to the G20 summit, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had an extraordinary message. Civilization could collapse “like the Roman empire”, he warned, “unless we get this right in tackling climate change.”   “Humanity, civilization and society can go backwards as well as forwards and when they start to go wrong, they can go wrong at extraordinary speed,” he said.   The UK Prime Minister’s recognition that civilizations can experience a life cycle of growth and collapse is a milestone. But understanding what’s really driving the risk of going “backwards” is crucial to navigating our

Ten Lessons from Covid for Stepping into the Decade of TransformationIn 1989, a few months before the Berlin Wall would collapse, I was co-leading an international student group in a program called Peace Studies Around the World that took us to East and West Berlin.

In ancient Jerusalem there was a gate called the Eye of the Needle which was so narrow that when a fully loaded camel approached it, all the bundles had to be removed so that the camel could pass through. Referring to this well-known image of his day, Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”This is what comes to mind as I contemplate images of the Ever Given stuck in the Suez Canal. Fully loaded with containers on their way from Asia
