Prof. James Lindsay explains the Leftist tactic of critical attacks called a “Struggle Session”

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 104

One of the most famous and most evil techniques of Maoist Marxism is the “struggle session” (dòuzh?ng, ??; or p?pàn dòuzh?ng, ????, “critical struggle”; or sometimes just p?dòu, ??; also called “denunciation” sessions). They were made famous during Mao’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), but they were utilized in the Chinese thought-reform (x?n?o, ??, lit. “wash brain” or brainwashing) prisons starting in the early 1950s under the CCP. The nature of struggle sessions must be understood clearly in 2022 because Western nations are going through a “Woke” Maoist insurgency now, and the struggle session is all the way back in fashion (and has been for some time). Since being banned and returning to Twitter following Elon Musk’s acquisition, host of the New Discourses Podcast, James Lindsay, has been subjected to a rather brutal online struggle session (a “twitter storm” as a harassment campaign) in the attempt to punish him back off the site and to discredit his highly effective popularization of the term “groomer” for Maoist ideological groomers, especially those using Queer Marxism. In this groundbreaking episode of the podcast, James goes through the struggle session he’s currently experiencing while tying it to the psychological analysis of that phenomenon as presented in Robert Jay Lifton’s book Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: A Study of “Brainwashing” in China ( ). Join him to learn about this destructive form of bullying activism and to learn how you can resist it.

  1. Personally, I wouldn’t give much credence to Mao or resurrecting any “Struggle Sessions”. Let him slip off into obscurity of history.

    We call this what it is… a smear campaign of retaliation because he labeled the pursuit and grooming of children by people seeking sexual access to them for what they were – groomers.

    Thank you for being so brave James!

  2. Paraphrasing Alex Jones’ remarks to the Judge and Jury at the Sandy Hook show trial.
    ‘what are we doing doing here, having a struggle session?”
    Then they fined him billions (not millions) of dollars, they didn’t like his dissent.
