Pursuing the light of objective truth in subjective darkness.

    Pierre Trudeau, the Club of Rome, and the Degrowth of Canada

    Pierre Trudeau, the Club of Rome, and the Degrowth of Canada

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Ep. 143

    Canada is in a lot of trouble, but few of us realize how far back the trouble really began. In 1968, Canada was swept with a madness affectionately called "Trudeaumania," and a new prime minister, Pierre Trudeau, was swept into office with an interest in making major transformational changes to the Canadian circumstance. Though his ambitions were greater than what the political environment in Canada in the 1970s and 1980s could tolerate, the elder Trudeau shifted policies and government institutions strongly into the radical model championed even today by some of the most concerning outfits on the planet, including the World Economic Forum (WEF), United Nations (UN), and the infamous neo-Malthusian "Club of Rome." In fact, in this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay exposes that Pierre Trudeau worked closely with the Club of Rome (https://www.utpjournals.press/doi/full/10.3138/cjh-57-2-2021-0101/) before it officially launched and set Canada's environmental policy from its outset in line with their wicked ambitions. Join him to learn how deeply infected the Canadian Liberal Party is, and has been for fifty years, with bad Communistic ideas like "degrowth" (https://newdiscourses.com/2023/08/degrowth-wests-leap-backwards/), "sustainable development" (https://newdiscourses.com/2021/10/sustainability-tyranny-21st-century/), "inclusion" (https://newdiscourses.com/2023/11/the-fraud-of-diversity-and-inclusion/), "Net Zero" (https://newdiscourses.com/2023/05/absolute-zero-and-the-western-holodomor/), and the "well-being economy" (https://newdiscourses.com/2023/11/degrowth-distributism-well-being-economy/).

    James Lindsay Condemns the UN in Geneva

    James Lindsay Condemns the UN in Geneva

    The United Nations is an evil organization, and it's time for us to recognize it. Fortunately, We Are The Change, part of the Inspired Network (https://www.theinspirednetwork.org/ ), put on a rally outside the United Nations headquarters in Geneva on June 1st to help the world do just that. Among the invited guest speakers to this huge rally, which had over 3,000 people in attendance, was James Lindsay, owner of New Discourses and host of the New Discourses Podcast. Lindsay delivered a short, fiery speech in which he condemned and denounced the United Nations as an evil organization, rejecting its ambition to claim any of our national and individual sovereignty to itself. He explained their big-picture ambition to act as a kind of "central nervous system" for a global "meta-organism" of all of humanity and nature, which is a Marxist agenda. In the end, he warns the UN of their hubris, comparing them to Babel and reminding them: "God shall not be mocked!" Check it out!

    Reflexivity Leftism In The 21st Century

    Reflexivity Leftism In The 21st Century

    New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 96

    Dialectical Leftism doesn't just do the old Marxist thing anymore. There's a new dialectical game in town that allows Marxists worldwide to transcend classical Marxism, including in the Chinese Communist Party over the last few decades. That method is called "reflexivity," as it was outlined as a so-called "shoelace dialectic" by George Soros in his famous book The Alchemy of Finance (https://amzn.to/3XjXqJp). Host James Lindsay detailed the Soros method (https://newdiscourses.com/2024/04/the-reflexive-alchemy-of-george-soros/) recently in a long-form podcast on the New Discourses Podcast platform, and here, he summarizes the essential points in short form for the New Discourses Bullets. Join him for this important episode to learn how propaganda and driven feedback loops are misshaping the world.

    Do Your Homework!

    Do Your Homework!

    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 matters is as simple as one thing: doing your homework. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay talks about this Leftist strategy and the importance of doing your homework to countering them. Join him to up your game!

    Voting as a "Social Determinant of Health"

    Voting as a "Social Determinant of Health"

    The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Ep. 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 opportunity to do surveillance, problematize, and seize control over entire systems to be reorganized to achieve Woke Marxist goals. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reveals in two papers that professional associations like the American Medical Association (and others) have designated voting as a "social determinant of health" with "political determinant of health" consequences and have used this bogus designation to justify doing voter registration and targeted voting drive campaigns from the platform of psychiatric healthcare services. Join him to hear about this extremely unethical practice.

    The Political Definition Of Queer

    The Political Definition Of Queer

    New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 94

    Queer Theory is one of the most destructive ideas ever to have been loosed onto our society from the halls of academia, as we have documented in the recent book The Queering of the American Child (https://amzn.to/3K2HovQ ). But do you know the definition of "queer"? Do you know that it's not possible to be queer, only to act queer? Do you know it has almost nothing to do with gay people? Do you know it's virtually guaranteed by definition to encourage pedophilia? All this and more is available in the original definition of "queer" as it is used in Queer Theory. Join host James Lindsay in this episode of New Discourses Bullets, where he reads and explains the original definition of "queer" from David Halperin's 1995 book Saint Foucault: Towards a Gay Hagiography (https://amzn.to/4bmHaM2 ).

Excellent work

You are doing invaluable labor, for which many people are grateful. You mentioned the deprogramming people who have been swept into the cult of the woke. Could you do a podcast on how to go about that? Thank you again.

Exposing creepy totalitarians

You’d have to be a real queer to leave a negative review on this podcast. Just wondering why James has a hard on for Israel isn’t it just dialectical antithesis decision trap? I see the protests are fake but Oct 7 was also fake

Exposing the Groomers

It’s scary what the deviants have in mind for our children. Brainwashing and creating an army of unhappy people. James reveals the agenda of these monsters. Progressives are just slightly nicer communists slow walking us to tyranny and death. Keep up the great work!
