New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 95 To be successful at pushing back at Woke Marxism, you have to know some Woke Marxism and know it pretty well. It’s not enough to have a tacit sense of what “Woke” or its programs are about. You have to be somewhat knowledgeable. Leftists are extremely good at discrediting their opposition by making them look dumb (or ignorant, or uninformed), evil, or crazy, and they will spring questions on unsuspecting activists to create this image. Preventing them the easy entry against you, your work, and your message that is undermining your intellectual authority on these

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 142 A Woke concept that doesn’t get nearly the attention it demands is the concept of various “Determinants of Health (DoH).” They are institutions, systems, and societal structures that have health-relevant outcomes, and the Woke Marxists have a few objectives in pushing this perspective, which amounts to “society is preventing you from having optimal health and needs to be controlled by Woke Marxists.” There are social determinants of health (SDoH), commercial determinants of health (CDoH), economic determinants of health (EDoH), political determinants of health (PDoH), and more (and more). Each is an

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 93 Surely you’ve noticed that Woke doesn’t work. Of course it doesn’t. It’s not just bad ideas put into operation by bad people and obvious grifters, though, that causes the problem. Woke Marxism isn’t even interested in making things work. In fact, it’s worse than that, even. Woke Marxism is, by definition, hostile to making things work. It is, as Herbert Marcuse put it in An Essay on Liberation in 1969, a protest against “the totality of a well-functioning and prosperous society,” even against its very Platonic Form. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 86 One of the most potent techniques dialectal wizards make use of is setting “affordance traps.” An affordance trap is a way to trap their targets into a very limited range of options (which are afforded to them), usually with the psychological effect of making it difficult or impossible to think of any other possibilities other than those offered. Breaking free of affordance traps is necessary to beating Woke Marxism and all other forms of dialectical manipulation. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of New Discourses Bullets to learn about this important topic. Additional episodes of New

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 84 “Communism marries a truth to a lie.” -Julie Behling, author of Beneath Sheep’s Clothingand director of a forthcoming documentary by the same title. One of the most basic truths about how Marxism works is that it marries a truth to a lie. Another way that has been put is that “every Woke term conceals an agenda.” In order to combat Woke Marxism, then, it is crucial that we learn to pull apart the truth and the lie and to expose the manipulation involved. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay takes you through the principle and

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 83 Many of us are working tirelessly to fight Woke Marxism and its attempted takeover of our societies, but the question is whether we’re working as effectively and efficiently as we can. Often, we aren’t, and it’s discouraging, frustrating, exhausting, and demoralizing. When we are, though, we get the opposite effects: morale builds, momentum is generated, and winning builds upon winning. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay introduces the “Pareto principle,” also known as the “80-20 Rule” as a guide to organizing our efforts when we’re out organizing against Woke Marxism. Join

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
