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.

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.

America's Overseers: How the Example of Harvard Discredits the Meme of Black "Marginalization". Among the many spells the wicked witches of the woke West have cast upon us is the one that compels us to believe that blacks are eternally “underrepresented” and “marginalized” in America.
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.

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.
The logic of the left today is rooted in an essay by the neo-Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse. The thesis statement: “movements from the left must be extended tolerance, even when they are violent, while movements from the right must not be tolerated, including suppressing them by violence.”

We are witnessing the birth of a new national mythology in America, and it is not good news. Imperfect as it was, the old one was better, warts and all, and it needs to be fought for. This new alternative, of “liberation,” is based not in truth but in alchemy; it will therefore end in catastrophe.
