If you want to understand the Woke ideology, you have to admit that you’re not ready to understand Woke ideology. Everyone knows that the Woke use terminology with their own inventive and biased definitions, but understanding that terminology requires understanding how the Woke think about the world. It isn’t possible to understand concepts like “diversity,” “inclusion,” and “equity” without first understanding that the Woke see everything in the world through a particular lens of power.
When you do understand how the Woke see the world and thus how they use language to their advantage, you’ll also understand how we’re all being played. Diversity gets revealed as a program to concentrate resources, influence, status, and power in the hands of Woke Critical Theorists while disempowering everyone else. Inclusion is comprehensible as restricted speech, intentional segregation, and a justification to concentrate their idea of “diversity.” Equity is the goal, which has to be understood as a combination of affirmative action and reparations used to redistribute resources and engineer outcomes in the name of correcting past injustices.
Everything can be threatened by this change of context in our language to one that interprets everything through “systemic power dynamics.” Our contracts, our laws, and even our Constitution can all be reinterpreted to mean something completely different without having to change a single word through this Woke manipulation of language. Join James Lindsay as he walks you through the Woke mindset and how it can, and will, be used to turn our societies’ core principles back against them.
