James Lindsay Goes to Oxford. They chose him to argue against the proposition “This House Believes Woke Culture Has Gone Too Far.” He made stellar arguments and made the case that, by its own words, woke culture can never go too far.

“Communism is the riddle of history solved, and it knows itself to be this solution.” –Karl Marx. The fancy, new-fangled “solution” to the non-existent “riddle of history” therefore now tends to go by the name “sustainability,” or more specifically, “sustainable capitalism.”

The Many Faces of Marxism. In every case, a special form of property is at the center of the “Theory,” and the liberation of man depends on its abolition, by which is meant its “positive transcendence.”

Leftists are always talking about "the dialectic", but what does that actually mean? How many people know? In short, it’s the fusion of opposites in a way that understands them from a higher-level perspective, which is necessarily synthetic. This video does a good job of explaining it.

How have the radicals on the Dialectical Left—specifically, Woke Marxists—stolen education from our children? The answer is called “critical pedagogy,” which was developed on the back of the great Marxist religious revivalist Paulo Freire.

Woke Marxists talk endlessly about the need to “destigmatize” this, “normalize” that, “affirm” this other thing, and “celebrate” whatever they say is best. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay gives concrete examples of things that belong and do not belong in each.

In Marxist literature, you run into the words “reality,” “realities,” and “actual” all the time.

In most applicative contexts, Critical Social Justice Theorizes willful ignorance to be the reason for just about any disagreement with the claims of Critical Social Justice, especially if a member of some “dominant” social group.
Under Critical Social Justice, "Oppression" can be so subtle as to be undetectable even by the people who experience it until they develop a critical consciousness (become woke).
When advocates of Critical Social Justice ask people to be more "tolerant," what they mean is to take on a particular form of self-serving intolerance that acts in service to their radical & revolutionary agenda.

The Only Thing That Isn't Systemically Racist: vaccine passports. Despite the fact that vaccine passports, if implemented, will meet the Critical Race Theory definition of racist policy. Twitter is suspending people for sharing satirical memes pointing this fact out.
After sowing distrust by naming the healthcare system as racist, blacks and Latinos are less vaccinated. Vaccine passports would create a (systemically racist) mechanism by which the disproportionately black and Latino population will be excluded from participation in the functions of society.
Critical Race Theory's Dictatorship of the Antiracists. Gnosticism turns progress upside-down by reframing it away from the effort to prosper in the world as it is and toward remaking it into a world that is not and, because this non-reality is essential to the Gnostic project, cannot be.
Classical music, Beethoven specifically, art, hiking, going outside, the pandemic, black people who don’t agree with Critical Race Theory, logic, loyalty, punctuality, hard work, merit—these are all part of the “system” of racism that this neo-Marxian Theory “interrogates” for its hidden racism.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay: The Woke Manipulation of Democracy. Much of Woke activism works by equivocating between two meanings in a strategic way: boring everyday meanings to gain access and win arguments; specialized meanings to do their activism once they have the power.
Marcuse makes the case that to achieve a liberated utopia, man will have to be changed at the level of his fundamental needs and his biology, and that this can be accomplished by making him live in a society that “introjects” a new critical morality into him. It’s a truly alarming piece of work.
It is not normally appropriate to liken one’s ideological opponents to something like a virus, but what should we do when the people who hold that ideology liken themselves to viruses like HIV, Ebola, and SARS? This is exactly what we encounter with Critical Social Justice.
Is Critical Race Theory Marxist, as many insist, or is it not? What is the relationship between Marxism, neo-Marxism (Critical Theory), and Wokeness? All three criticize one another, and yet all three have a great deal obviously in common. Is there some common underlying thread? The answer is yes.

By having adopted a strict adherence to Critical Theory and the social constructivism of postmodernism, Wokeness rejects the idea that there is any thing as a reasonable person or standard. In place of a sense of what is and isn’t reasonable, the Woke ideology sees only its sole obsession: power.
A Manifesto for the Based, from New Discourses by James Lindsay. Being based is the opposite of being Woke. Woke is wholly intolerant of everything but itself. It, because it is cynical of every motivation, it never acts in good faith. It demands absolute conformity and tolerates no dissent.

What is the end-game of the Woke ideology? The immediate goal of the Woke agenda is to turn everything into a Woke organ. The Woke agenda is to flatten all the variety out of life and make every aspect of life do one thing and one thing only: serve Theory.
The Rise of the Woke Cultural Revolution. In this essay, I hope to outline a few factors that I think offer a partial analysis of how this societal virus escaped the university lab. Critical Pedagogy trains students to become generally uninformed, uninformable, incurious complainer-activists.
We need to know what a post-Woke world would look like and, more importantly, which values will get us there. James Lindsay presented four values he thinks are core to the establishment of a post-Woke world. These are truth, beauty, liberty (thus responsibility), and merit.

The fight against the ideology called Wokeness is gaining ground for the first time in a decade, if not decades. People increasingly understand what it is and why it is a terrible, inhuman, and inhumane ideology that has no place governing our societies.
The End of Civil Rights in Kimberlé Crenshaw's "Mapping the Margins". James reads through the conclusion of “Mapping the Margins” and illustrates exactly how Crenshaw’s ideas will achieve the complete subordination and redirection of all leftist, left-wing, and civil-rights thought.

I want to introduce a new strategy and term to you. It’s simple: call Critical Race Theorists and its activists “neoracists.” It’s a good term. This brilliant neologism allows people to name a blatant injustice and to make a clear, principled call against racism and neoracism at the same time.
