Marxists use linguistic tricks. “Communists share your vocabulary but they don’t share your dictionary” is a common way of putting it. One of the dirtiest of those tricks is on the word “people.” Whether it’s in establishing “Democratic People’s Republics” or championing “the people’s movement,” Communists are always subtly telling us that the only people they count as people are Communists. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains this history and usage and ties it to a present-day example that, on the surface, looks funny but turns out to show an ugly hand. Join him to learn more!

Did you know you can keep money out of the hands of the state government by making a donation to the Libertarian Party of Oregon? It’s not just tax deductible, it’s a straight up credit of $50 for single filers and $100 for those filing jointly for household incomes of no more than $75,000/150,000 respectively. (More info: https://oregon.public.law/statutes/ors_316.102)

We have big plans for our upcoming State convention this May and we are working on getting events planned and systems put in place for a very exciting presidential year in 2024…but our success in growing the party and building it’s infrastructure will largely rely on our available financial resources.

So if the Oregon state government getting LESS money and the Libertarian Party of Oregon getting MORE is a formula that appeals to you please make the maximum donation for the credit that you can to help us grow the Libertarian Party throughout the state. 

You can donate by clicking here —> DONATE

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

― Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The leftists we call woke have corrupted and continue to destroy society.  A small percentage ACTUALLY knows where this comes from.  The vanguard is usually college-educated people in your company’s HR department, but many educated in our system now believe nonsense.  There is also an army of “useful idiots” who have been immersed in the culture of oppression Olympics, racist, sexist, phobias, and whatever the current thing is. Learn to spot it and get out of this cultural phenomenon.
