In trying to understand what the Woke movement is and why we all need to be willing to fight back against it, it's helpful to observe how it behaves under certain circumstances. You've all probably heard, for example, that we should look to how someone treats those beneath them to understand their character, but there's another test of a person's mettle that can be quite revealing. How do they react when, for good reasons, they are asked to relinquish power? With the Woke, it's pretty obvious: there's nothing they hate more. They throw fits. They engage in illegal activity. They bully. They slander. They sue. They call everyone opposing them by horrible names. They cheat. They do literally everything they can to hold on to every shred of power that they've taken for themselves, even when they're clearly abusing it. This tells you a lot about them. They're bullies, and they're obsessed with one thing above all else: obtaining and keeping power for themselves. Few facts could possibly tell us that they don't deserve power and, in the very moment they abuse it, must be removed from it. In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I discuss this phenomenon a little to give you some clearer sense of what we're dealing with in the Woke movement and therefore also how we must approach pushing back against it.
