The Strange Death of the University, Part 1: The Red Thread

Podcast cover
Read more
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 95

We all know academia is in trouble. In fact, we're not even sure it can be saved. To put it simply, the university is dying. To be sure, it's a strange death, however, because the university is in some sense going back to its roots, returning to being theological seminaries, though in a completely new religion. That religion is the transformative religion of Dialectical Leftism, and its materialist watchword in the 21st century is "Sustainability." In this New Discourses Podcast series, host James Lindsay takes the listener through a 2022 UNESCO book, Knowledge-driven Actions: Transforming Higher Education for Global Sustainability (https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000380519/), that calls upon all "higher education institutions" to transform themselves so that they align, promote, and help complete the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a part of the 2030 Agenda.

In this first episode of the series, Lindsay goes through the preliminary materials, including a foreword that explicitly grounds the entire purpose of the document in the work of the Critical Marxist Herbert Marcuse. "Transformation is the red thread running through all the Sustainable Development Goals," we're told in the first sentence of the foreword. The goal in this executive summary is clear. The university must be transformed. It must be made into a think tank that services the UN 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals meant to achieve it. All institutions of higher education, colleges, universities, seminaries, and beyond, must be bound and oriented in this one particular Neo-Communist direction. They must abandon their missions and take up the core value of sustainability, on the UN's agenda-driven terms. They must install "sustainability officers" and refuse to engage in any activity that supports "non-sustainable" practices. Join James and be shocked at what the United Nations thinks it can coerce the world's colleges into doing.

Understanding the Dialectic

Podcast cover
Read more
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 21

Leftist thought for at least the past 250 years has taken a particular form that is not the usual form of thinking and understanding we know and love. It's something completely different. The Left, perhaps since Rousseau and definitely since Hegel, has been dialectical in its thinking. It is the Dialectical Left. What is the dialectic, though? What is dialectical thinking? In short, it's the fusion of opposites in a way that understands them from a higher-level perspective, which is necessarily synthetic. In this slightly longer episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains the dialectic and dialectical thought in some detail with a considerable number of examples to help you understand this synthetic approach to thought and why it's always going to be a catastrophe in the making.

How Paulo Freire Made Marxism Stupid

Podcast cover
Read more
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 94

Paulo Freire is a Brazilian Marxist who is responsible for "Marxifying" education (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/05/paulo-freires-marxification-of-education/), thereby ruining it. In effect, what he did was created a Marxist Theory of being educated (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/05/paulo-freires-schools-new-discourses-bullets-ep-7/), and what this did, in turn, was create a Marxist Theory of knowledge and knowing. Who gets to be considered a knower? On what grounds? To whose benefit? Who decides? All of these questions are to be answered on (Critical) Marxist grounds. One result of this transition, in addition to his approach to education (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/08/paulo-freire-and-the-critical-theft-of-education/), is that he opened the door to a true Marxism of stupidity. You see, as a result of Freire's arguments, "excluded knowledges" have to be included, which includes the stupid. Speaking of how anti-intellectual and stupid this allowed Marxism to be, it allows for any idiot with a "Critical" disposition to create a Marxist Theory of anything by asking and answering the sorts of questions listed above about the knowledge base of anything they want. Thus, we end up with Marxist analyses of every academic subject, every facet of society, every hobby, every everything, in an interminable cascade of irritating stupidity we refer to as "being Woke." In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay explains the phenomenon through a number of examples that make it absolutely clear how cheap and stupid "Marxist" analysis has become as a result of going "Woke."

The Dialectic of Global Citizenship

Podcast cover
Read more
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 20

There are certain advantages to understanding not just how the Dialectical Left (including Marxists and Wokeness) think but how their thought evolves over time. Theirs is a wholly Leftist religion that operates through a completely dialectical faith. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay spends a few minutes unpacking the dialectic and how it works. He then uses this information to trace the development of Leftist thought over the last 260 years and offers a cogent explanation for how it will develop over the next thirty, progressing through Woke Marxism into Sustainable Capitalism and pushing onward into "global citizenship" and a basis for a global administrative state.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 93

Redefine the words; redefine the society. That's the basic idea of "critique" and the way so much of Marxist activism proceeds. Recently, James Lindsay explained this phenomenon in an essay (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/09/three-terms-communists-redefined-to-subvert-society/) on New Discourses with relation to three key terms that allow a subversion of society: "inclusion," "democracy," and, most concerningly, "citizenship." In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through and elaborates on his own essay on this topic. Join him to understand this important maneuver.

On Individual, Corporate, and Social Buying

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 19

Apparently a lot of young people believe not only in something nonsensical but also specifically in socialism. I recently heard an example of a young woman talking about how all the necessities of life both "should be free" and "should be paid for by the government." Obviously, if they're paid for, they're not free, but she means that they're free for her and paid for by everyone, thus partly her, through the intermediary of the State. This is a terrible idea. To better understand why, it's best to understand a basic fact of economic decision-making, which are the differences between first-, second-, and third-person purchasing decisions and why government purchasing, which is always third-person, is always least likely to do well by the cost/quality tradeoff. Join host James Lindsay in this episode of New Discourses Bullets as he breaks it down.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 92

We have to talk about Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). It's not the first time it's been addressed here on the New Discourses Podcast, but the full picture hasn't been painted for you yet. Social-Emotional Learning is evil and must be stopped. It isn't a nice little program to help at-risk kids deal with the difficulties of learning. It's the central pillar of a nefarious attempt to remake and control society. Host James Lindsay walks you through a number of sources promoting and describing Social-Emotional Learning in unprecedented depth, breadth, and clarity in this long but crucial episode of the podcast. Join him to understand why Social-Emotional Learning and the mechanisms that enable it must be removed from our schools as soon as possible and the people who have implemented it need to be investigated and held accountable.

What is a Woman?

Podcast cover

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 18

What is a woman? That's the question of the year, it seems, and we're all aghast. The thing is, almost nobody understands what that particularly nasty bit of confusion is about. Luckily, the most high-profile case of the problem, which occurred in the Supreme Court confirmation hearing for Kentanji Brown Jackson, gave us the answer. She said she didn't know what a woman is (while being a woman) because she's not a biologist. In other words, to know what a woman is, you have to ask a qualified expert. It doesn't matter what the definition is because the whole thing is a power grab making use of Queer Theory (better called Queer Marxism) to steal power from deliberately constructed confusion. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks it down for you like no one else can. Join him and hear!

Paulo Freire and the Marxist Transformation of the Church

Podcast cover
Read more
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 91

The churches are under attack, not just from without but also from within. Marxist subversion has been brought deeply into them, and they are already falling. The model for how this is being accomplished mirrors the model used to steal education, so it's little surprise that the Brazilian Marxist educator Paulo Freire is at the bottom of it. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay picks up out of the Critical Education Series (https://newdiscourses.com/tag/critical-education-theory/) in which he has been reading most of Freire's landmark 1985 book, The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation (https://amzn.to/3IJ4ZOT). Here, he presents the last two thirds of the tenth chapter of that book, which is dedicated not to education at all but to seeing churches as educational platforms that can be utilized in the same way as schools to raise Marxist consciousness. The model is simple: capture the colleges of education and seminaries and you get the teachers and the pastors, and once you have them you get the students and the laity. Join James to understand the goal of transforming the Christian churches in theory, practice, and agenda in this gripping podcast that exposes the roots and implementation of a devastating Marxist rot in mainline Christianity and thus the chief heresy of the twenty-first century.

The Normalization Scale

Podcast cover
Read more
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 17

Woke Marxists talk endlessly about the need to "destigmatize" this, "normalize" that, "affirm" this other thing, and "celebrate" whatever they say is best. They want you to think that these things are all the same, though, and any one who doesn't take the slider all the way from "destigmatize" to "celebrate" on any of their causes célèbre is somehow a conservative (or a bigot or a "Nazi"). In fact, these gradations are necessary to a healthy society, and their boundaries must be understood and maintained. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down the relevant categories and gives concrete examples of things that belong and do not belong in each. His goal is to add clarity to all discussions made muddy, murky, and ultimately dangerous by Woke Marxist activism that benefits from blurring the lines and making those slopes slippery.

Paulo Freire's Marxist Easter for Educators

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 90
Critical Education Theory Series, Part 20

This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation (https://amzn.to/3IJ4ZOT), and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series (https://newdiscourses.com/tag/critical-education-theory/). In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the ninth chapter of that book, where Freire outlines that the purpose of education is to humanize Man and the world, exactly as indicated by Karl Marx.

Part 7: https://newdiscourses.com/2022/08/paulo-freire-and-the-critical-theft-of-education/

In this episode, the last in the formal educational series covering this book, James takes up the first part of the very weird tenth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire discusses Liberation Theology and the Role of the Church as a parallel educational institution. In this first part of this shocking chapter, before turning to the role he envisions for churches, Freire explains the religious conversion educators must go through in order to be "true" educators. He describes it as a process of spiritual death and rebirth, literally an Easter educators and religious leaders must go through to be resurrected on the side of the oppressed. This is the religious heart of the so-called "pedagogy of the oppressed" at the center of Freire's entire project and legacy. Join James to understand how Freire enabled the theft of education so that it could be transformed into religious education for the Theology of Marxism (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/01/theology-marxism/).

Queer Theory Is Queer Marxism

Podcast cover
Read more
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 16

Thanks to Drag Queen Story Hour, groomer schools, and all other things sex, gender, and sexuality pushed by today's out-of-control Woke Marxist Left, Queer Theory has been pushed front and center in the public consciousness, but what is it? Simply put, Queer Theory is Queer Marxism, which is a Marxist Theory about a form of sociocultural "property" called "normalcy," "normality," or "normativity," that it believes to have been unjustly created and in need of destruction and total abolition. As such, it's incredibly dangerous and destructive, particularly on the formative and impressionable psychologies of children, whom it targets in particular, often directly through our schools and children's entertainment programming. On this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay breaks down what Queer Theory is, partly in its own foundational words, and illustrates succinctly why it is a form of Queer Marxism that must be stopped. Join him to learn about this important and timely topic!

21st Century Re-Education, The Digital Gulag

Podcast cover
Read more
New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 15

Most people do not understand what a gulag is. They think of the Nazi concentration camps and therefore miss the point. Gulags, utilized directly and by that term in the Soviet Union under Lenin and then Stalin and without the term in Maoist Communist China, are re-education camps, not merely labor camps or concentration camps. That is, they have an ideological goal, and that goal is to brainwash people into becoming Communists. They're also mid-20th century technology, so they're not likely to be utilized extensively in their classical prison-camp form in 21st century totalitarian regimes, as we can already see in CCP-controlled China. The tyranny and brainwashing of today will be through digital gulags, which amount to using digital devices and technology to control and contour behavior, including through social-credit programs, while re-educating people into the Neo-Communist ideology behind these totalitarian agendas, primarily ESG-driven "sustainability." In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains not only what digital gulags might look like but how they're already being built, primarily using our children as guinea pigs under the "educational" brand name of systemic Transformative Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). Join him to learn about this crucially dangerous problem so we can take steps to stop it before it goes too far.

Critical Education Violates the First Amendment

Podcast cover
Read more
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 87
Critical Education Theory Series, Part 18

Critical Pedagogy in our public schools unambiguously violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The reason is simple. As Critical Pedagogues themselves say, it has ambitions that can only be framed in religious terms, describes a fundamental concept of man and the world, and gives rise to duties of conscience. According to well-established First Amendment law (https://scholarship.law.cornell.edu/clr/vol74/iss3/4/) in the United States, that violates the Establishment Clause. The argument is simple. The conception of man and the world it forwards is not the self-evident base of liberal society, which is by definition secular in this way; it is otherwise. It is the Hegelian-Marxist conception of a world that is transformed into its intended utopian state (literally, "the Kingdom of God on Earth") by the morally obligated and willful activity of man undertaken with a specific belief, intention, and set of practices. It is a world that demands to be transformed into its ideal state by specific means in accordance with specific beliefs about its organization and operation with "conscientized" man as its intentional transformer. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of the New Discourses Podcast where he makes the argument, neat as neat.

Queer Theory and "Cripping Incest Discourses(s)"

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 86

Queer Theory has no bottom. No matter how bad you think it is, it's worse. No matter how bad you think it is now, it will get worse later. In that spirit, we at the New Discourses Podcast present to you yet another "academic" paper rooted in Queer Theory: "Cripping Incest Discourse(s)" (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12119-021-09856-3). You probably didn't think it was an act of latent genocide to be against incestuous sexual relationships, but according to "Crip Theory," which is the fusion of Queer Theory and Critical Disability Studies, you'd be wrong. You see, incest produces disabled and deformed offspring at a higher than otherwise rate, so you being against incest means you're supporting the idea that there should be fewer disabled people in the world, which is "latent eugenics." Join host James Lindsay as he takes you through this stunning piece of academic work. You won't believe your ears.

The Social-Emotional Learning Bait-and-Switch

Podcast cover
Read more
The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 85
Critical Education Theory Series, Part 17

Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is a key battleground topic in education today. Parents across the country are rightly very upset that what sounds like and could be a very useful program for kids who struggle in certain ways at school has far less wholesome purposes. On the one hand, they're noticing that SEL tends to be misapplied in classrooms and through other subjects, not in controlled therapeutic settings with kids who have been identified to need it. On the other hand, they've noticed far more nefarious uses like data mining of children and a diversion of educational resources into overtly grooming and Marxist programs they don't support or want for their kids. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay goes through a paper on Social-Emotional Learning in the context of the pandemic to reveal that there's an intentional bait-and-switch being sold to school districts (unless they realize what they're doing, which is unconscionable). What sounds good in SEL is being sold to promote "Transformative SEL" (CASEL model) or, in this paper, "Social-Emotional Learning for Social-Emotional Justice (SEL-SEJ)," which is just a different description of essentially the same thing. What's obvious here is how flimsy SEL programs of this type are and also how overwhelmingly Marxist in the Paulo Freirean mold Lindsay is exposing in tremendous depth here on the New Discourses Podcast. Join him to learn about how SEL is definitely not what it might seem to be.

This episode of the New Discourses Podcast continues a long miniseries exploring Paulo Freire’s landmark 1985 book The Politics of Education: Culture, Power, and Liberation (https://amzn.to/3IJ4ZOT), and it is embedded in the broader Critical Education Theory series here (https://newdiscourses.com/tag/critical-education-theory/). In the previous part, James Lindsay presented the ideas in the seventh chapter of that book, where Freire makes clear that education is really meant to be about conscientization, which is to say becoming Marxist. The previous parts of this series, covering the earlier chapters of the book can be found here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/04/paulo-freires-politics-of-education/), here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/04/paulo-freire-educating-to-proclaim-the-world/), here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/04/social-work-education/), here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/05/paulo-freire-birth-of-groomer-schools/), and here (https://newdiscourses.com/2022/07/paulo-freires-perpetual-cultural-revolution/).

In this episode, James takes up the eighth chapter of The Politics of Education, wherein Freire describes what he calls "The Process of Political Literacy." That is, in this chapter, Freire explains explicitly that political literacy, which is called cultural competence or racial literacy today, should replace the usual, actual literacy in education. Join him to understand how Freire didn’t just Marxify education but made the entire Marxist project of transforming society and man the centerpiece of his educational project.

Podcast cover
Read more
One does not merely arrive at a Marxist consciousness. In fact, conscientization is a process of awakening a Marxist consciousness, and it is a deliberate practice of cult grooming. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay walks you through the eight stages of Marxist conscientization, as he has understood them from Cultural and Critical Marxists in the 20th century. Join him to learn about the Marxist grievance cult initiation in a clear step-by-step way.
