How the Woke Fail the Paradox of Tolerance. They are absolutely intolerant, will not debate or listen to alternative perspectives, and, unlike all other hate movements that fail those two criteria, have grown to be completely unchecked and uncheckable by public opinion.

Critical Theorists as Grand Inquisitors: The Logic of "Repressive Tolerance". In this part, Marcuse dedicates the rest of the original 1965 essay to explaining why it is him and people like him (that is, Critical Theorists) who get to decide what constitutes good violence and bad violence.

Negy's Challenge: Academic Cancellation and the Freedom to Fight. Given that Negy’s activity was clearly protected speech that could not justify the termination of a tenured professor, UCF took the astonishing step of actively soliciting complaints about Negy from past and present students.

Essentialism: a philosophical method best characterised as the worship of language. Essentialist thought has stifled our reason since antiquity due to its overwhelming intellectual obsession with language itself, failing to recognise that language is a tool we use to represent reality, nothing more.

Repressive Tolerance: Left Good, Right Bad, What Could Go Wrong? Lindsay walks through the darker part of Marcuse’s argument to show how he arrives at this blatantly biased and ridiculous conclusion that has set the stage for the totalitarianism we see today in Wokeness and from Big Tech.

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.”

Antonio Gramsci, Cultural Marxism, Wokeness, and Leninism 4.0. If you want to understand the present moment, especially how similar Wokeness seems to Mao’s Cultural Revolution, you have to understand the Italian communist Antonio Gramsci. Understand more clearly than ever why it must be resisted.
I have a hypothesis that the modern phenomenon of “Social Justice” occurred in China around a hundred years ago. The eventual result of an obsession with racial and ethnic differences the Chinese Communist Party, with its near-absolute control over the lives of 1.4 billion peasant subjects.

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.
What Is Critical Race Theory? Its true objective is to re-organize the social, cultural, and legal playing field in a way that claims to reverse “historical injustices” around the issue of race, allegedly without reproducing them. Please share this essay around, it needs to go viral.
Despite his official stance as a moderate Democrat, Biden has proven himself willing to pander to the radical left. This suggests that he himself accepts some dimensions of the Critical Social Justice framework.
Intersectionality Goes to Court. What is clear at this juncture is that intersectional theories of discrimination will increasingly govern civil rights litigation. “Progressives are chomping at the bit to bring new cases—’textualism’ in the service of intersectionality.”
The Woke Make Biden's "Moderation" Irrelevant. For any of his late and thin comments about the violence that has rocked our streets for the last half of this year, Biden has given us absolutely no indication that he’s going to resist any of this bureaucratic totalitarianism.
(Higher) Education Is Destroying America. The less educated distrust the educated contingent’s claims to knowledge and expertise because knowledge claims by the educated elites now routinely come packaged with liberal doses of barely concealed political prejudice.

The University as the Woke Mission Field: A Dissident Women's Studies Ph.D. Speaks Out. That someone who critiques the axioms of a field of study feels compelled to write under an assumed name tells you everything you need to know about the authoritarianism underpinning this ideology.

Psychopathy and the Origins of Totalitarianism. Many of the greatest horrors of the history of humanity owe their occurrence solely to the establishment and social enforcement of a false reality. This means that they require power, coercion, manipulation, and eventually force to keep them in place.

The Five Most Moronic and Dangerous Woke Ideas of 2020. A concept had to stand out as (1) silly and (2) insidious in its ability to influence people (the “coattail effect,” as we will discuss). Until enough thoughtful people fight back, nutty woke concepts will continue to take root and metastasize.

Is BLM Based On a Conspiracy Theory? The Black Liberation Army of which Davis was a part was more forthright about what liberation meant and entailed. It’s a neo-Marxist conspiracy theory. They observe, to quote them at some length (cont.)
Philip Guston (Not) Now: The Impact Argument. The exhibition organizers were guilty of not protecting the viewers, of not thinking first and foremost about the pain they might feel, thus negligently exposing the vulnerable by exposing them to “incendiary and toxic racist imagery.”

The 'Model Minority' Myth Cudgel. "To maintain white supremacy, whites will allow certain Asian and Latin American groups to become honorary whites and succeed, so they can ally with them to oppress blacks and other, generally darker-skinned Asian and Latin Americans."

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay – Episode 13. The truth is, even on a perfectly equal playing field, liberty will produce unequal outcomes because people will behave in unequal ways, and this form of inequality of outcome is just, even if inequality of opportunity isn’t.

White Fragility Training and Freedom of Belief. The similarities between this belief system and belief systems more instantly recognisable as religious, which also believe in original sin, powerful but insidious forces of evil, a priesthood, epiphany and atonement, are clear.

Four Fallacies of the Woke Prohibition of Cultural Arguments. Woke ideology has achieved a near total victory in crowding out cultural explanations for disparity in the world. The woke have successfully branded cultural explanations as racism.

Wokeness Threatens the Rule of Law. In this worldview, there is no such thing as a “reasonable person,” and nothing can be considered “reasonable,” because the very application of “reason” is a mere application of whatever is accepted by the dominant power structure at hand.
"Everything Is Problematic". There is something dark and vaguely cultish about radical left politics. I’ve thought a lot about what exactly that is. I’ve pinned down four core features that make it so disturbing: dogmatism, groupthink, a crusader mentality, and anti-intellectualism.

“Anti-racism” explicitly tells us that there is no such thing as being “not racist” or even “less racist.” This is patently absurd, but because these ideas have gathered so much widespread support and adoption in recent months and years, we are now offering this essay as a guide.

Critical Race Theory has a Jewish problem, and, finally, people are beginning to notice. “Stop being shocked,” implores Bari Weiss, formerly of the New York Times, writing for the Jewish commentary magazine Tablet. It’s a staggering article that cannot be recommended highly enough.
This is the world according to Critical Race Theory, and in such a world, you’re always wrong (and notice—your race never had to be assumed for these situations to play out to the inevitable conclusion of present racism: the conclusion was simply to be and was assumed from the outset).
Why Schools Are Teaching Our Kids "Social Justice". Rather than learning how to do mathematics, then, your children will be taught to ask questions like how mathematics is used to maintain racial oppression—for it must, according to Critical Race Theory.

The Great Silencing of America and the Hallmarks of Woke Totalitarianism. We are in the midst of a Great Silencing, the quashing of all voices from both our present and our past. Wokeness is deep into the process of filling the void with objectives that bear the classic hallmarks of totalitarianism.

2+2 Never Equals 5. Occasionally in the course of human events it becomes necessary to have to explain something no one would ever have expected to have to defend. In the present moment, we find that circumstance to be the case and that thing to be that two and two do, in fact, make four.

James Lindsay explores the principle of charity in debate and dialogue in the context of the motte-and-bailey rhetorical strategy. His goal is to explain how the game of critical theories is not the same game the rest of us play in broadly liberal societies. The critical game seeks to destroy.

Welcome to New Discourses. This commitment to open and forthright dialogue won’t just risk offending people. It will offend them. At present, our discourses are limited, and many people are coming to realize it. Those who do, don’t like it, and we’re ready for a change.

The Critical Race Theory belief system deconstructed. It is inherently racist and divisive, cynical and Sisyphean in the extreme. It is opposed to the humanist beliefs about race that made us what we are today: an imperfect, but decidedly less racist society than any that has come before.
