The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 117
Intersectionality is a Woke standard, but what is it? Where does it come from? The history of the concept isn’t that hard to trace, and where it leads us is back to some of the worst regimes in history. Kim Crenshaw tends to be credited with Intersectionality, but she got it from the radicals in the Combahee River Collective. They put the idea together, in their turn, from the advocacy and activism of Herbert Marcuse. Marcuse was copying Mao, who was completing ideas laid down by Stalin for completing the perfect Soviet Union. In this provocative episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads and expands upon his recent essay, summarizing his remarks given at Northwestern University at the start of May 2023 explaining the Maoist nature of Woke intersectionality. He also delivers a powerful warning to the Woke youth who have taken up with the movement.

Thank you, James. Wokeness, systemic racism, political correctness/ indentity politics, etc are all basically nothing more than nonsensical artificial manufactured oppression causing self mutilation in groups of people/ victimhood using crutches to destroy individualism. Nothing new under the sun as all has originated from past atrocities now on steroids advocating for fake inequality. Wokeness could be akin to eating the forbidden fruit causing self harm under the guise of knowledge. Wokeness is a disease of old (Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Authoritarianism, and Facisim) affecting the youth. It’s actually bondage disguised as freedom through indoctrination, propaganda and political cults. It appeals to the youth because they are the ones searching for purpose and belonging. If the youth of today actually cared enough to understand history they would know they are being played like a violin for a sinister agenda. They are merely pawns in a wicked game. Using fear, lack of self awareness and lack of knowledge is how racial genocides occur and it’s the oldest game in the book. Anyway, I had to repost my comment because for whatever reason it wasn’t posting. Will have to continue listening later because I’m multitasking. Ciao
Thank you, James. Wokeness, systemic racism, political correctness/ identify politics, etc. are all basically nothing more than nonsensical artificial manufactured oppression causing self mutilation in groups of people / victimhood using crutches to healthy competition and destroying individualism. Nothing new under the sun all originated from past atrocities now on steroids advocating fake inequality. Wokeness like eating a forbidden fruit causing self destruction under the guise of higher knowledge. Wokeness is a disease of old ( Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Authoritarianism, and Facisim) affecting the youth. It’s actually using blinders while claiming clear vision caused by indoctrination, propaganda and political cults. It’s a special kinda stupid. If the youth of today actually understood history they would realize they’re being played like a violin for the purpose of a sinister agenda. They are merely pawns in a wicked game. Using fear of losing a group of one’s ethnicity while playing the race card is the oldest trick in the book. Anyway, I’ll have to continue listening later. Love your channel. Ciao 👍🏻
I cant believe these foolish students cant figure out the situation they are in. But this movement has gained traction and gotten its fangs on the leaders of the free world including FJB. James you really expressed the situation with stunning clarity in the closing remarks to the students. Were any of them listening???
