Host James Lindsay reads through French Marxist Jean-Paul Sartre's famous summary of Fanon's Wretched of the Earth and shows that decolonization is little more than a Gnostic rebirth ritual perpetrated through murder.
In this lecture from Dr. James Lindsay of New Discourses, the nature of the action-reaction dynamic as a tool of political warfare and the example of the setup of Christian Nationalism as a reaction to Woke provocation is laid bare.
In this lecture from Dr. James Lindsay, the parallels between our experience today and the tools utilized in China under Mao will be made so clear that the unavoidable conclusion will be that we are living through nothing less than American Maoism.
A great deal of subversion has already taken place in both low courts and high, though we’re also seeing a wakening judiciary quickly starting to realize the problem and its underlying nature. This rousing of the judiciary is patently visible in the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v.

In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson famously used a curious phrase to describe man's fundamentally inalienable rights: "among these, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." What many do not know is that Jefferson was riffing off and augmenting a similar formulation from John Locke, who argued that we have inalienable rights to life, liberty, and property.
