To fully grasp the nature of the struggle we are engaged in, the true nature of woke/wokeism must be understood. Wokeism is more than an ideology or worldview. Wokeism is the blend of Critical Consciousness (Critical Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, Critical Pedagogy, etc.) and post-modernism (whose foundation is that nothing is objective truth, all are subject to bias, prejudice, privilege, and therefore those in power decide what is “objective truth” in furtherance of their power, wealth, and status). It permeates nearly all our societal institutions and should be described as a religion in the true sense of the term. We will explain why this is the case in this article.
Yes! Wokeism Believers share one vow: how to separate anew Good from Evil. They participate in a convocation as mighty as Riefenstahl’s 1938 game, “ Olympia.”
It will be fun someday to sit together with you, sir, for a coffee or tea. Let’s gather and discuss how unique are Wokeism’s the good and the bad.
I won’t explicate here because I am weary of snap judgment and can hear Woke hounds a’howling and the grinding and gnashing of teeth of Woke’s “Grammar Nazi” Brigade, not to forget the Battalion of Nuevo Intellectuals who, needing no Western Canon of Reason, skittle off into the wild blue yonder.
How refreshing your straight-arrow lancing of a hangdog doctrine’s inverted logic! Are they aware Woke’s inverted tautology sticks Human Success in the hot seat of Dante’s lowest circle of evil?
Let’s stay out of range. Snags and splinters prickle Woke’s anti-meritocracy. We’re still free, we got The Beatitudes. So let’s celebrate that old time Religion. It’s good enough for me.
I love this: "“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” current and future laws and public policies should be examined through this lens. " And I fully agree. We should examine all the "Christian Sharia" laws and repeal them. You know, the ones that ban homosexuality and attack drag queens, and the BS of "In God We Trust" on currency, and of course, the "under God" phrase added to the pledge of allegiance by crazy Christians... Let's get ALL the religious gobbledygook out of my secular world.
Sounds like you want to keep the "Handmaidens Tale" world view going in post-modern America. Why do you dislike discussing real history?
