New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 62 There is a psychological phenomenon called "reactance" that is triggered when someone is convinced they're likely to lose liberties and freedoms they currently enjoy. It's a powerful effect that motivates action and forces people to take a side, usually against the perceived threat to their liberty. Woke manipulators know this and use it frequently. They explain that their enemies, usually members of a free society, are "fascists" who want to "limit the rights" of some vulnerable group. The goal is to trigger activation through reactance to join up in solidarity with the threatened group. You'll notice Leftists do this all the time, by the way. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains this form of activism and how it works to polarize and activate useful idiots in the Leftist base. Join him to learn what it looks like.
