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

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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 81 We all hear about the pendulum swinging in politics. We’re also all aware that the pendulum is currently pushed very far Left, leading people to suspect it will swing back hard soon; indeed, maybe too hard. It’s important to understand how Work Marxists and other Leftists throughout history have made intentional and productive use of the pendulum swinging. It is their style to arrange affairs so that when the pendulum swings back, it has also moved position so that instead of striking them, it strikes another one of their targets. In this episode of New

Should the United States split up? The country is more polarized than it ever has been, at least since the Civil War, having divided not so much geographically but culturally and ideologically. The two broad factions in this split are what we might call the “Red Team” (conservatives) and the “Blue Team” (progressives)—the irony in these color designations not being lost on many. Now that things are so divided, might it just be better to go our separate ways as peacefully as possible so we can get on with life? Might it be time for a “National Divorce”? Blue Team

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 80 Entryism is the idea of infiltrating an institution with hostile subversives. It’s a name for a variety of strategies for getting them in where they’re not wanted. DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) programs achieve an entryist goal through an indirect method that involves a bit of randomness. That is, they’re stochastic entryism. The way they work is to increase the probability of hiring people who are activists or who can be made activists through further training without intentionally selecting for activists in a direct way. This maintains plausible deniability about the goal of the program. Simultaneously, it

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 79 A magic word for Woke Marxists and their shrewd handlers is “reflexivity.” Reflexivity is the energy that makes revolutions go. Most of us, since we’re not wizards who want to manipulate society to our own ends, don’t think in reflexive terms, and so we not only fail to recognize the use of reflexive political warfare tactics against us, we also tend to fall for them. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay introduces the concept of reflexivity. Join him to learn to recognize the building of reflexive potential, the explosion into a

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 134 Fascism wasn’t just a “bad thing” that happened in the first half of the twentieth century, and it’s not just a bogus word the Left throws around today about everyone and everything it doesn’t like. It was an explicit totalitarian ideology of state power that arose as a reaction to Communist provocation and libertine excesses in the 1920s and 1930s. That doesn’t go far enough in describing it, though. It is, in fact, the dialectical antithesis of Marxism and libertinistic “liberalism,” which is to say that it is an ideology that

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 76 Communists have to get inside institutions to subvert and transform them. Getting into them requires tactics. The name for these tactics is entryism, or sometimes just entrism, and it describes how a hostile ideological force goes about getting inside an institution that wouldn’t normally accept it. It’s a key concept for stopping Woke Marxism, so in this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks it down. Join him and understand this important Woke tactic.
