Have you ever torn a sheet of paper with both hands? How about 10 or 20 sheets? OK, how about 50-100 sheets? If you haven’t tried 100 sheets, you can rightly presume that it gets harder to tear with more sheets. Hold onto this thought, we’ll come back to this.
Whether one sees it or not, our society is going through a “Woke” Maoist insurgency or “Woke Cultural Revolution.” The Woke are those who have taken on the worldview of Critical Social Justice, and have been deemed as American leftists or American Maoists.
According to Yukong Mike Zhao, a survivor of Mao’s China Cultural Revolution, he draws parallels between what the radical left is doing in America and China’s Cultural Revolution fifty years ago.
Zhao notes that Chinese Maoists and American leftists have both:
- Created Marxist lies to establish moral authority and divide societies.
- Censor and cancel opposition.
- Radically change the culture, rewrite history and indoctrinate citizens.
There are many important lessons we can take away from Dr. James Lindsay’s Surviving a Modern Struggle Session podcast. We learn that one of the most famous and most evil techniques of Maoist Marxism is the “struggle session” which were made famous during Mao’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), but they were utilized in the Chinese thought-reform (brainwashing) prisons starting in the early 1950s under the CCP.
How the Woke are trying to force change into society today is by unleashing the strategies of those horrific ‘struggle sessions.’ In these brainwashing tactics, the Woke mob’s goal is to get you to tear off pieces of your soul to give to ‘them’ to define it for you – ‘they’ will re-humanize you.
They will accomplish this by pressuring their target victim to denounce or betray friends or families, and even get their ‘friends’ to expand the pain of the struggle session with any ‘smears’ the mob has made up about the target.
They will struggle highly ‘influential’ targets in today’s public square, which is social media, and may overwhelm and harass targets by unleashing fake accounts (bots) to smear them. The intent is to get you to ‘confess or yield’ something in order to get the mob to stop harassing you, and they may get you kicked off the social media platform if you don’t – injuring the livelihood for some by doing that.
More than just hurting your reputation, the key in the mob’s ‘campaign’ to struggle you is to break you psychologically – making you feel that your friends are turning or are abandoning you. Targets must be prepared to find out who their real friends are here…some may not want to become targets themselves, but there will be some that stand up for you. However, do not ‘rely’ on your friends, the strength ultimately must come within you.
They are trying to get ‘you’ to ‘demoralize yourself’ – and then this will demoralize others when they see this happening. One either survives the struggle session or they don’t, but you must never give in. If you give in some, then you have chipped away a part of yourself, which is what they want.
Don’t feel you have to ‘explain’ anything to them…because it will not work, it will only intensify things – if you ‘explain’ things, then you are losing! They will get you to give in to guilt ‘somewhat’ – so if you say something like “I don’t think that I’ve done anything wrong, but I can see why you would think that” – they have then dominated you as you gave ‘some’ confessions. Then they will look for ‘FULL measure’ of your guilt.
They are trying to get you to ‘denounce’ something, and if you do then they’ve ‘got you’ because they have effectively humiliated you by getting you to do or say something that you didn’t need to… so do NOT be a tool of this Communist ploy!
Do not presume that they are ‘good faith actors’ – they are actually violent manipulators. They want to affect their target’s entire being, even if symbolically through emotional abuse. They want to attack the parts of your loyalties and beliefs to one’s sense of self, and your standing in a community.
Their goal is to kill off the part of you that they deem problematic, the socially connected part.
They want to affect social death within your social circles; to ‘isolate’ you, so you are vulnerable until you don’t know who you are and where you stand. Their dehumanizing goal entails estranging you from yourself and from others by making ‘you’ do the denouncing – thereby self-betrayal. They would want you to ‘drag’ your friends into this toxic circle, due to your fear of annihilation.
The person who has been struggled must adopt the Woke cult group’s ‘higher morality.’ This cult indoctrination is about ‘grooming’ the target to not just ‘feel guilty’ – but to groom so that the guilt and shame felt is that of the ‘environment’ that the Woke need you to admit …until you are completely destroyed!
Know that some of the Woke may have been brought to this point themselves through these unbelievable psychological and social pressures. The failure of one’s human limitations to the ‘standard’ they’ve shamed the target with will cause them to ‘blame other people and visit that abuse’ on others – and that’s why Woke act the way they do.
Struggle sessions are happening at your kids’ schools and at your workplace. Know that ‘Social Emotional Learning’ is designed to put pressure on your children, and DEI and ESG trainings are forced upon you at work. If your kids speak up at school ‘they’ will get struggled through kids bullying them, or by the school not helping them out. In the workplace, your job just might be threatened if you speak out.
Know this: when you start accepting the thought reform and believe that their guilt and shame – this the most dangerous part of thought reform, for this is when you give in and adopt the Woke. Now that the Woke can not get you ‘banned’ on the social media hyper-reality, they have lost their ‘trump-card’ there – but they will still try to DISPARAGE YOUR IDENTITY.
Remember that we must BREAK the cycle – don’t ‘pull others into’ the session! If you see someone you look up to being struggled, do not add or contribute to it in order to satisfy your curiosity, but recognize it is a ‘leftist smear campaign’ and acknowledge that the opposite must be true. Try to remove yourself from the situation unless you KNOW how to fight it. Break the power of the struggle sessions by acknowledging or calling out what they are doing: they are engaging in ‘grooming’ (so they are ‘groomers’).
You CAN survive this, but can’t ‘go to war’ with people who get sucked into every psychological operation that comes along their way. If people ‘leave’ you when they see you struggled, then they were ‘dead weight’ who would have only brought you down. Be with real people.
Here are some pointers If you are in a ‘struggle session’ – some suggestions for what you SHOULD and should NOT do:
- HIT BACK when you can, on the ridiculousness of the whole thing (mock it to take away their ‘stick’).
- Log off online, so you don’t have to look at it.
- File complaints if at work – while might intensify things it is best to get papertrail going.
- Most important: Have ‘real friends’ in real life (not just online), so they can help you stay psychologically grounded.
Should NOT do:
- Do NOT give in by trying ‘clear the air’.
- Do NOT throw someone else under the bus.
- Do NOT do what they are asking of you.
- Do NOT believe the lie.
- Do NOT rely on most of your friends to come to your defense, lest you get disappointed.
- Do NOT get suicidal.
- Do NOT take it personally…let it burn out.
Before I share some real-life scenarios, I strongly encourage you to listen to the full and robust podcast from which I only shared some takeaways from.

Real Life Scenario ‘A’ – Struggled at the Gym
I reflect back on a time that a fitness instructor friend of mine had posted on social media his disappointment with a certain politician coming into office. There wasn’t a lot of detail on that post, but just voiced his displeasure with this politician. Now my friend is ‘white’ and a very patriotic ‘male,’ – and he got reprimanded as a ‘racist’ on that post by a black female. This was a strange thing for her to accuse him of being a racist, just because he didn’t approve of this ‘white male politician’ and hadn’t said much of anything else on that post. Rightfully, my friend lashed back by unleashing facts about the politician that proved the politician was the racist; my friend pushed back the ‘shame on you’ comments to the false accuser.
So my friend apologized for nothing and did not give the false accuser an inch (none of the “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to offend…I’m not a racist” rhetoric that the Woke tend to expect from their victims). What was also powerful for me to witness was the deluge of supporters that my friend received via comments, and many of us ‘minorities’ encouraged him that he is NOT a racist. The support was so overwhelming that the false accuser even made a comment about it. Gratefully, there wasn’t anyone who ‘commented with curiosity’ as a busy-body, which could have given a foothold for the false accuser to jump on.
The best part is that many of us who supported my friend have actually become closer friends, and now we understand that we community of individuals stand together for each other and encourage one another – we are ‘real’ friends in person as well as on-line.
Real Life Scenario ‘B’ – Struggled at the Workplace
There was a friend of mine who was ‘struggling’ with the forced ‘micro-aggressions’ toward minorities training courses at her workplace. She was a gorgeous blue-eyed blond who was very kind to everyone. When discussing what she learned at the forced ‘micro-aggressions’ class, she told me she was ‘scared to death’ – and I can see how it would frighten her as it seems that anything could be deemed offensive.
She was pleasantly surprised to hear me declare all that as ‘a bunch of crap’ – and for her not to fall for it! I explained to her that these are programs that are being pushed corporately due to ESG pressures, and that even her own boss may not have had any say about all of that. I believe and hope that enlightening her to the nonsense that all that was, did in fact helped her to not be so afraid. I sense our conversation was accomplishing the part of having a real friend to keep her from the paralysis of fear that the work-place struggle sessions were trying to push.
So between my friend and I, we ‘called it out’ so that it lost some of the power it meant to have over her.
Now, remember the illustration at the beginning of this podcast regarding the multiple sheets of paper being more difficult to tear? Along with truth from Ecclesiastes 4:12 which tells us that: “And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.” So my encouragement for you is that you do gather up and get to know ‘real’ people to stand together with, as Dr. Lindsay has strongly advised. On-line only friends are one thing, but the necessity of having real friends and community will help you stay sane against this Maoist ‘Woke’ Cultural Revolution that is taking place today.
Find your community of individuals, and be there for them when they get put through their ‘struggle session.’ It might actually be fun to gather some ‘real friends’ together and make an event out of listening and learning from the lengthy and powerful ‘Surviving The Struggle Session’ podcast together.
