New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 49
Cults have a structure. The Woke Marxist cult is no exception: it is structured too. In general, there are three types of layers in cults, though each of these might have various levels or ranks within it. Those are the “Outer School” of initiates who are committed to the cult but don’t yet understand it, the “Inner School” of adepts who are deeply committed to the cult and do understand it, and the “Inner Circles” of disciples and leaders who are leading and guiding the cult whether they believe its doctrine or not. Until you understand the structure of cults, you will consistently underestimate and misdiagnose “Wokeness” because you’ll mistake the behavior of the Outer School initiates as being characteristic of the cult, which it is not. The doctrine is pushed by the Inner School and paid for by the Inner Circles. Join host James Lindsay for this important episode of New Discourses Bullets as he breaks it down for you.

How does this structure differ from the structure of almost any organized group? The founder(s) of any group is the most knowledgable, most adept. The upper-level managers are usually quite dedicated, but still learning, And most of the employees are there for all kinds of personal reasons. Some are really into what the group is trying to accomplish and some aren’t.
I don’t think the structure of a cult is as important as what its leader(s) is trying to accomplish and by what means. Cult leaders often use deceptive or hypnotic techniques to get members to do things or believe things they normally wouldn’t. Most groups just offer on-the-job training. They often demand blind devotion and impose severe penalties for leaving. Most groups promote you if you show sufficient zeal, and fire you if you are too uncooperative.
