Cult Language of Woke

New Discourses

May 11, 2023

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 50 Woke Marxism is a cult. In being a cult, it operates like an "initiate society," and the initiation into the cult is largely but not wholly accomplished through its deliberate misuse of language. As it turns out, this is a pretty consistent feature of cults, especially gnostic cults like Woke Marxism is. In technical language, gnostic cults are esoteric cults, and their language often has two meanings at once. One of these meanings is the everyday meaning they want you to think of when they use words like diversity, inclusion, belonging, sustainability, and so on: the exoteric meaning. The other is the coded meaning cult members understand: the esoteric or hidden meaning. Understanding this feature of Woke language manipulation not only clarifies their behavior but also makes clear that we're dealing with a cult. Join host James Lindsay for this episode of New Discourses Bullets where he explains this feature of the Woke Marxist cult.
