Woke, Mao, and the American Cultural Revolution
A New Discourses comparison of a 1957 speech by Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong & America at present
It's time to be plain. Actually, it's long past time. What's happening in America today and throughout the West is a Maoist cultural revolution, just like happened in China under the CCP from 1966 to 1976. This is plain to see for those who know what to look for, from the struggle sessions, to the ideological totalism, to the separation of families, to the brainwashing in schools, to the destruction of statues, curriculum, and culture. If we are to have any hope of stopping this Maoist Cultural Revolution with American Characteristics, we have to begin by being honest about it. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay walks the listener through a speech given by Mao Zedong1 in February 1957 to make very clear and palpable that what's happening here, now, is what was happening there, then. Mao gave this speech on the eve of the Great Leap Forward (into catastrophe), just as we're living through our present tumult on the eve of the Great Reset.
Lindsay’s latest book, The Marxification of Education: Paulo Freire's Critical Marxism and the Theft of Education explains how this cynical ideology made it’s way into American Education.
To learn more about the series of 4 four presentations on the Marxification of Education delivered in late July 2022, which were the foundation for the book above, check out the following Schooling Delaware post:
Below is some additional content from New Discourses. The content on Paulo Freire is in itself worthy of a seperate post.
Here are two books which expose the goals & methods used by the communist party that I consider “must reads”. In these books you will find a list of 45 Communist goals2, which on January 10th, 1963 Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read into the Congressional record as well as exposing the tactics used by the Communist Party of America. Primarily, how the Communist Party infiltrated the most resiliant & resistant demographic, the black community, by way of the church.
