    Paulo Freire's Politics of Education and a New Hope

    Paulo Freire's Politics of Education and a New Hope

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 63
    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 3

    How did Wokeness come about? Here on the New Discourses Podcast, we've dedicated hours and hours to uncovering the roles of neo-Marxism (or, Critical Marxism; or, Critical Theory), postmodern Theory, Marxism, Hegelianism, and other dimensions of Leftist thought. The role played by Critical Pedagogy, and in particular the Marxian Theory of Paulo Freire, has not been fully discussed, however. The role played by this line of Marxian thought cannot be ignored, however, because, as James Lindsay puts it in the forthcoming book Race Marxism (https://amzn.to/3qo23Bw), Critical Pedagogy is the plow, planter, and fertilizer that enabled Wokeness to grow in the first place. This is evident when we understand Freire's line of thought on the purpose and approach to education, but what's less well understood is the aspect of faith and hope ("Critical Hope") Freire brought back into Marxian Theory. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, join James as he dives into the introduction to Paulo Freire's 1985 book, The Politics of Education (https://amzn.to/3ntSjnr), in order to better understand Freire and his influence. This podcast is the third in the developing Critical Education Theory series on the New Discourses Podcast and the first of many focusing on the figure and thought of Paulo Freire.

    Why Every Day Is January 6 Now | OnlySubs with James Lindsay, Ep. 77

    Why Every Day Is January 6 Now | OnlySubs with James Lindsay, Ep. 77

    On January 1 of this year, the New York Times told us that "Every Day is January 6 Now." That's obviously absurd, hyperreal, pseudo-real, but it's also an echo from the past. While many have rightly made the comparison between that farce and the Reichstag Fire perpetrated by the National Socialists in order to grab power, I was immediately put in mind of a paragraph from Herbert Marcuse's 1965 essay "Repressive Tolerance" (https://www.marcuse.org/herbert/publications/1960s/1965-repressive-tolerance-fulltext.html) when I saw that headline. "The whole post-fascist period is one of clear and present danger. Consequently, true pacification requires the withdrawal of tolerance before the deed, at the stage of communication in word, print, and picture. Such extreme suspension of the right of free speech and free assembly is indeed justified only if the whole of society is in extreme danger. I maintain that our society is in such an emergency situation, and that it has become the normal state of affairs," Marcuse wrote. Every day is January 6 now, and our entire society is in such an emergency situation, one of clear and present danger. In this episode of my subscribers-only podcast, James Lindsay OnlySubs, which I'm taking out from behind the paywall and making available to everyone, I walk you through the crucial paragraphs of Marcuse's essay in light of this ridiculous and ridiculously dangerous pronouncement. Join me to learn even more about how we find ourselves living in Marcuse's nightmarish neo-Marxist philosophy.

    The True History of Intersectionality

    The True History of Intersectionality

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 62

    Intersectionality is usually credited to Kim Crenshaw, who coined the term as well as "Critical Race Theory" in 1989. It has an older history, however. Listeners to the New Discourses Podcast will have heard earlier episodes in which James Lindsay articulates how intersectionality arose from the Critical Marxist Theory of Herbert Marcuse in the late 1960s, but there's another link in the middle of the twenty-five year span between 1964, when Marcuse wrote One-Dimensional Man (https://amzn.to/3pXrjhK), and 1989. That link can be found in the Black Feminist organization known as the Combahee River Collective, which published a manifesto-like statement in 1977 that lays out intersectionality 12 years before Crenshaw ever wrote about it. In the Combahee River Collective Statement of 1977 (https://www.workers.org/wp-content/uploads/CombaheeRiverCollectiveStatement1977.pdf), then, we can find the first articulation of what intersectionality is really about and see unambiguously its deep Marxist roots, cementing the claim that it is, in fact, Identity Marxism. Join James on this episode of the New Discourses Podcast to hear the statement in his signature style.

    How Education Turned Critical

    How Education Turned Critical

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 61
    Critical Education Theory Series, Part 2

    Something is rotten in the state of Western education. The name for that rot is "Critical Pedagogy," which could also be called "Critical Education Theory," the infusion of Critical Theory into all aspects of education. How did this happen? Rather, how was it allowed to happen? Activists have been tirelessly working for over 50 years to make their way into the American, Canadian, and other Western school systems, and, as you will learn in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, the second in a growing series on the Critical Turn in Education, they have been successful in that mission for at least the last 30 years. In this episode, second in this series, James Lindsay reads through the book that documents this horrific turn, The Critical Turn in Education (https://amzn.to/3qDpJRi), by Marxian education professor Isaac Gottesman, and makes clear exactly how our educational systems were deliberately and strategically turned Marxist over the last half century. Join him to understand exactly what's going on in our schools and why.

    Groomer Schools 3: The Creation of an American Red Guard

    Groomer Schools 3: The Creation of an American Red Guard

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 60

    More and more people are waking up every day to the fact that our schools have become an undeniable catastrophe, and they're starting to realize alongside that fact that it isn't an accident. It is purposed. It is intentional. It is a strategy, and it uses our children as pawns for achieving a nightmarish agenda, no matter how much damage it does to them to achieve it. In this Groomer Schools series on the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay has already walked you through (in Part 1: https://newdiscourses.com/2021/11/groomer-schools-1-long-cultural-marxist-history-sex-education/) the long Communist Party strategy to use sex education in schools to destabilize society and sever ties between generations and just how specifically grotesque this grooming sexual agenda is (in Part 2: https://newdiscourses.com/2021/11/groomer-schools-2-queer-futurity-and-the-sexual-abuse-of-your-children/). Here, in the third part of the series, Lindsay puts these two pieces together, explains their purpose, and illustrates how Critical Race Theory works alongside Queer Theory (grooming) for a blatantly Maoist purpose: to create an American Red Guard meant to overthrow our society and start all over from a new Year Zero. Join him to understand the evil Maoist tactics being employed in our schools to turn our children into Revolutionaries for the purpose of undermining America and the West.

    Five Key Points to Understand About Critical Race Theory

    Five Key Points to Understand About Critical Race Theory

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 59

    The movement taking on Critical Race Theory is now in full swing across the Western world, and not a moment too soon. Over the course of the last year and a half, people have learned enough about this Neo-Communist menace to be ready, willing, and able to stand up and fight it in schools, institutions, companies, and communities all across our societies. What's necessary now is a simplification. Critical Race Theory flourishes in part by making people believe it is complicated and sophisticated when, in fact, it is neither. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay boils down Critical Race Theory to five simple points that are easily understood and easily communicated. Join him to arm yourself to show up to the fight and to equip officials to take up the fight beside you.

Very well informed

James Lindsey knows what he's talking about. I hope more people will listen to what he has to say.

Miss Zed. ,

Fascinating and fair.

Helen Pluckrose’s one on the development postmodern thought is thrilling for its attempt to make things clear, but honestly, all of them have left me thinking for days.

Well researched, fair and fascinating. The perfect long form mediation. Hit play, grab headphones. Go for a walk. You won’t regret it.

kdsde ,

That was a tedious way to say 2 + 2 ≠ 5.

There might be an interesting philosophical discussion about truth and will to power to be had, but listing in detail the ways that 2 + 2 ≠ 5 was not entertaining
