The Coming Totalitarian Persecution

Woke Ideology Mimics Precursors to Totalitarian Slaughter, Experts Say

BY PETR SVAB June 21, 2021 Updated: June 22, 2021


Some of the core tenets of the “woke” ideology spreading around the country mimic ideas used to justify many of the most horrendous atrocities of the past century, according to several experts.

A recently released documentary exploring the topic, called “Better Left Unsaid,” concludes that the self-identified “radical left” endorses four fundamental “truths” that they “hold to be self-evident,” noting that these tenets have also been used to justify and incite many of the worst massacres of the 20th century.

The first of the four claims is that “the world is best viewed through a group oppression narrative lens.”

The “woke” ideology is based on a set of quasi-Marxist theories that divide society into “oppressors” and the “oppressed” based on characteristics such as race, sex, class, or sexual proclivities. “Woke” is sometimes used interchangeably with Critical Race Theory (CRT), which is one of the more prominent ideologies that operate within this framework.

The second claim is that “evidence of oppression is the inequality between groups,” the documentary says. If the designated “oppressed” group does on average worse in some regard than the designated “oppressor” group, that is taken as virtually unassailable proof of “oppression.”

The third claim is that “peaceful dialog and understanding between the groups is impossible since the dominant group’s strategy is to retain its power.”

Woke theorists have posited that the “oppressed” have a uniquely valuable perspective on reality unavailable to the “oppressors.” Meanwhile, they say, “whiteness” or “white heteropatriarchy” can’t help but to try to maintain its “hegemony.” Even if it does things that benefit members of other groups, such as by abolishing slavery or giving women and blacks the right to vote, it’s still done out of self-interest and in order to further entrench its institutions and norms and thus ensure the “privilege” of its members.

Proponents of the ideology engage in dialogue between themselves, but with everybody else the communication is supposed to generally flow in one direction—that of acceptance of their views. Any challenge to the ideology is labeled as self-serving or even as an assault on the “oppressed.”

Finally, the ideology at least implicitly acknowledges that “because of the above, violence is justified to eradicate the inequities,” the documentary says.

“From my experience, they (to the degree they can be grouped together enough to call them ‘they’) tend to advocate for violence against those oppressing and equate it to laudatory behavior; hence, ‘punch a Nazi,’” author of the documentary, Curt Jaimungal, told The Epoch Times via email.

“I have catalogs of tweets, written statements, and videos of people ranging from students to [professors] explicitly calling for violence and downplaying the violence of those on the left when compared to the right,” he added, not because of intensity or frequency of such violence, but because of the so-called “nobleness of the extreme left’s position.”

These four tenets, Jaimungal demonstrated in the documentary, are common to many of the most brutal massacres and regimes of the 20th century, from the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany to communist China and the Rwandan genocide.

In each case, an entire class of society is painted as unfairly privileged and as such inherently oppressive, with little regard to specific actions of the individual members of the group. Meanwhile, disagreement with or mere disinterest in this classification is taken as support for the perceived oppression. With reconciliation through dialog taken off the table, the only remaining recourse is conflict—a “revolutionary” action where violence is seen as inevitable and, ultimately, preferable.

“Too few people know about the ceaseless carnage that took place under the masthead of the isomers of equity,” Jaimungal narrates in the documentary.

He said he avoided using examples of atrocities committed as a consequence of the totalitarian nature of the various regimes.

“I am careful to only list or only talk about the deaths associated with the philosophical doctrine of group guilt and class guilt,” he said.

Proponents of socialism commonly argue that the movements that led to these tragedies were commandeered or hijacked by people that didn’t really believe in the ideology. But they have tended to level the argument retrospectively, after they or their like-minded predecessors initially endorsed the movements and nascent regimes, the documentary points out. Also, proponents usually stop short of detailing how the next attempt will prevent any supposed nonbelievers from taking over.

Endorsements
The comparison between the preludes to past massacres and the current manifestations of the woke ideology is a fair one, as long as it’s not taken as an absolute, according to Erec Smith, associate professor of Rhetoric and Composition at York College of Pennsylvania.

“We’re not saying [a massacre] is definitely going to happen, but we need to be cognizant and remember our history and be careful about what’s going on here,” he told The Epoch Times.

Jaimungal’s conclusions were also recently endorsed by several scholars of totalitarianism, all of whom are critical of woke ideology. They were invited to comment on the film by Pat Kambhampati, chemistry professor and head of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship at McGill University in Canada.

“The same ideas that gave rise to Curt’s movie and the discussion of communism, we see a lot of parallels and isomorphisms taking place in the West and within academia,” he said during a May 31 panel discussion on topics raised by the documentary.

Janice Fiamengo, retired English professor at the University of Ottawa and self-declared anti-feminist, backed Jaimungal’s argument during the panel discussion. She was also featured in the film.

“As soon as one establishes these oppressor groups and oppressed groups, then when you are speaking supposedly on behalf of the oppressed, you can do nearly anything,” she said.

Gad Saad, evolutionary psychology professor at Concordia University, put forth the point during the panel that people professing utopian goals have a tendency toward eliminating those who oppose them.

“Utopians believe that the world could be a perfect place except for this one group that is stopping the world from becoming a perfect place,” he said.

Another panelist, retired New York University professor of liberal studies Michael Rectenwald, linked the woke ideology’s potential to unleash totalitarian force to its postmodern roots.

Postmodernism introduced the idea of fundamental relativism, professing that there is no objective truth, but instead the powers that be establish as true whatever is in their interest.

While the documentary notes that this notion is itself a “truth claim” and thus undermines its own validity, Rectenwald pointed out that adoption of the notion has serious real-life implications.

“The problem with this is not simply that we have no criteria for truth claims with this kind of notion, but rather it leaves open the possibility that when it has the requisite power behind it then anything can be asserted and can be asserted with force,” he said.

He gave the example of the ideology behind the transgender movement sweeping through government institutions.

“The force of the state is behind it and they can say that if you don’t accept that your child is a boy or a girl when they are the other then you could go to jail for this … or you could lose custody of your child,” he said.

“So when my truth becomes as good or better than any objective truth then we get to this point where the requisite power is applied and therefore we get the kind of authoritarianism and totalitarianism that we saw in the Soviet Union where people were forced to maintain things they knew to be false.”

Memes of Survival
Jaimungal defended in his film not only physical truths, but argued that just as there are “preserved genes” in human DNA that stand virtually unchanged through time and would be catastrophic to meddle with, there are also “preserved memes”—ideas that stand true throughout history and are similarly crucial to maintain, timeless lessons one can find in many religious scriptures and ancient stories.

These ideas are ingrained in humans, but have also been “externalized,” meaning imprinted on the external world in the form of the written word, art, rituals, and so on, he says in the film.

“Our survival depends on these ‘externalized memes.’”

Clinical psychologist and professor Jordan Peterson touched upon this topic during the panel discussion, noting the damage to the Western mythos inflicted by certain scientific theories, particularly Darwinism, and the subsequent substitution of the religious underpinnings of Western culture by an ideological ersatz.

“I could say to the atheists among the group, you know, ‘You’re not too fond of religion. How are you feeling about its replacement?’” he said.

In an “intact culture” a person is “inculturated” by the age of about 18 into “a religious belief that saturates the entire culture,” he said.

“It’s granted to you, it gives you an identity, and that’s what your identity is.”

Western culture has become in this sense fragmented, he argued, as it now lacks such a comprehensive unifying ethos.

Students still come to universities with a “messianic” urge, craving an initiation of this sort, but what they’re offered instead is an ideology, which he described as “a parasite on an underlying religious structure.”

“A proper religious structure gives you a balanced view of the world, there’s characters for that negative part of nature, there’s characters for the positive part of nature, for the negative part of culture, for the positive part of culture. [It] gives you a view that enables you to look at the world and it’s existential permanences, I guess, in a manner that allows you to live a balanced life.”

Ideology, he said, doesn’t serve this purpose.

“You get indoctrinated into an ideology and you find where Satan is, you know, it’s not in you, it’s out there in the patriarchal oppressor, let’s say. And the thing about that is that it rings true mythologically and it is also true because every culture is oppressive to some degree and we’re all crushed as individuals by the dictates of arbitrary society. And kids get into the university and they’re taught this one-sided, lopsided doctrine with a utopian end and it matches their developmental needs perfectly,” he said.

If an ideology is accepted as an intimate part of one’s identity, it becomes difficult to let go of as it provides the person’s life meaning, Fiamengo noted.

“They would actually rather die than admit that they’re wrong,” she said.

Part of the solution, the panelists agreed, would be to restore universities to their original purpose of pursuing objective truth.

The Revolt Against the Evil Woke Cult

How ‘Woke’ May Be Leading Us To Civil War
Authored by Roger Simon via The Epoch Times

Source: https://www.zerohedge.com/political/how-woke-may-be-leading-us-civil-war

The other day, I wrote that “woke” was the new conformism.

It is, of course, but I undersold it. It’s much more than that and more dangerous.

As Tal Bachman notes at Steynonline, it’s now our state religion, a state religion in a country that – constitutionally and for good reason – isn’t supposed to have one.

But “Wokism” is yet more than that, too. It’s a mass psychosis similar to many that have arisen throughout history when the masses followed leaders who, in their zeal or self-interest, took them to disastrous ends.

A good example was when the Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola – in a 1497 version of “cancel culture” – swept up everything secular in Florence from some of the most extraordinary paintings and sculpture of all time to the works of Boccaccio and burned them in the so-called Bonfire of the Vanities.

Being Jewish, I am also reminded of the bizarre tale of Sabbatai Zevi, the 17th-century Sephardic rabbi who proclaimed himself the long-awaited true messiah of the Jews, garnered thousands of followers, and then ended up leaving them completely in the lurch when he converted to Islam. (Interestingly, Bachman writes that “wokism” resembles Islam structurally.)

Closer to our time, the great Italian director Federico Fellini, in his film “La Dolce Vita” (1960), shows us what seems like hundreds of people rushing about, tears streaming, trampling each other, believing reports that the Madonna has been sighted. As the scene progresses, the crowd grows, with more and more people convinced of the sighting.

Of course, what Fellini documents is more or less harmless—not so “woke.” This psychosis has a political dimension and the capability of changing a society, which it has already done.

Face Excommunication
“Woke” gains adherents much in the manner of “est”—the cult-like Erhard Seminars Training—that I attended in the 1970s at the behest of a movie producer interested in making a film about it. (It never happened.)

If you’re too in, you’re out.

For instance, several hundred people sat in a large conference room listening to the “training” for hours under instructions not to get up, even to go to the bathroom, until they raised their hands signaling they “got it” (i.e., effectively joined the cult). Nature’s calling being what it is, most eventually did.

Although operationally similar, “woke” is exponentially more perilous than the now-defunct est training. Our position in society, our livelihoods, and our children’s educations and futures are being held over our heads, not our mere use of a restroom.

An iron-fisted, ideologically extreme minority has our country under its thumb—play along or face ex-communication. This is stronger than anything in our history and almost identical to what we see and have seen in totalitarian countries.

Stop tolerating the intolerant!

It’s a psychosis approaching mass hallucination.

In Franco’s Spain, they shouted, “Viva la muerte!” (“Long live death!”) Here we are asked to proclaim just as loudly “Black Lives Matter,” to display signs saying as much on our lawns, although we never thought otherwise and always thought (naively, we are told) that all lives mattered.

All key aspects, most parts of them anyway, of our society “get it” as they did in est (i.e., now believe in ”woke”) or, yet more ominously, cynically say they do—the media, the corporations (“Better woke than broke!”), the government bureaucracy, the Democratic Party, the Department of Justice, the FBI, the military (yikes!), entertainment, the university system, the K–12 system, the medical community, the scientific community (incredibly), the religious community (sadly), and on and on.

All, to one extent or another, believe in “woke” except—the people.

Most of the people anyway.

Most of what used to be called the common men (or women) in the street roll their eyes at “woke”—including even some silent, but browbeaten, Democrats—and do their best to move on, although many realize that “woke” and its sister “social justice” are in essence euphemisms for an ideology far more totalitarian than any ever in control of this country, communism.

Rebellion Brewing
How long can this gaping dichotomy continue?

How long before they stop rolling their eyes?

A rebellion against “woke” is brewing, particularly in red states, some of which are banning or have already banned critical race theory in their schools, among other pushbacks. (Kudos to Rep. Mark Green, Republican of Tennessee and Iraq War veteran, for introducing legislation to block critical race theory training at U.S. military academies.)

But will that be enough against a federal government that lives and breathes this evil ideology and that is essentially governed by a homegrown politburo—the thought that Biden acts by himself is ludicrous—determined to impose it?

As this imposition increases, the “contradictions,” as the Marxists would say, are heightened.

What the extremist ideology of “woke” actually provokes is talk of—and not just talk—secession and even civil war.

Few of us have heard anything like that in our lifetimes. But now it’s real. We have been driven apart as never before. We have been awakened indeed.

Anything can happen and some of us, who would never have considered anything like secession and civil war, suddenly do—highly disturbing to us as those thoughts may be.

So why do we even tolerate “woke”?

Bachman gives us a quotation from Austrian philosopher Karl Popper that is remarkably apposite for our times:

“Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”

From Antifa to BLM (whose leader apparently identifies with the mass murderer Chairman Mao) to the willfully blind talking heads of left-wing cable TV, no one is as intolerant as the ”woke” folks. They break all domestic records in that regard.

Time to stop tolerating them.

Woke-ism: The Rise and Rise of the Anti-Christ Religion.

Author: The Moderator.

In general terms, the Woke social justice movement shares common values with traditional Christianity. The values of equality, respect, caring for those in need, justice and sharing things for the common good are admirable qualities of woke-ism. Within Christianity, this is seen in:

Acts 2:44–47 (NKJV):  Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

Acts 4:32–35 (NKJV): 32 Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all. 34 Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need.

Differences are obvious within the daily application of such shared values. A great disparity exists between Christianity and Woke-ism with the issue of immediacy of justice. The Woke incessantly demand change and that all of their desires to be met, regardless of morality, laws and existing traditions. Christians are always asked to consider the actions of God while seeking justice.

Romans 12:17–21 (NKJV): Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore
“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

In contrast, Woke culture wishes to attain immediate results, even if it is through the pursuit of violent riots, protests and looting. This immediacy and need for conflict to force change has generated a “cancel culture”. The self-justified woke adherents seek to cancel an entire person’s status, employment and social media reputation from the entire planet. One may liken this to a virtual act of bloodless execution against a person that they hate. Cancel culture is an expression of hate, and it is only a slight margin of difference between cancelling a person’s status from cancelling the entire person from the entire Earth (i.e. murder).

Christians live and work in the Lord with the trust that, at the end of days, Christ will return and reign over His gloriously peaceful Kingdom:

Isaiah 11:6–9 (NKJV): The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
The leopard shall lie down with the young goat,
The calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little child shall lead them.
7 The cow and the bear shall graze;
Their young ones shall lie down together;
And the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole,
And the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.

Christians are required to submit to the authority of Christ as well as the laws of the land:

Romans 13:1–7 (NKJV): Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.

In recent years, ‘mostly peaceful protests’ have turned into murderous, violent, fiery protests. Insurrections and destructive protests, regardless of political affiliation, are against people, property, laws of the state and against the will of the Lord. The states and countries who fail to maintain civil peace through law and order are negligent and have failed their citizens. As Paul states, love is the fulfillment of God’s will.

Romans 13:8–10 (NKJV): Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law. 9 For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not bear false witness,” “You shall not covet,” and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Woke culture endorses the world view that one race is greater or less than another, which logically concludes with the need for reparations and limitation of status and opportunities for ‘privileged’ races or groups. Certainly, if there is evident unfairness or inequality, then this should be resolved and monitored to ensure that all races and all groups have equal rights, freedoms and access to justice. The glaring problem with woke-ism is that it justifies the degradation of other groups and races. This ignores the fallen nature of humanity and the hypocrisy of such an act.

All are sinners: Romans 5:12 (NKJV): Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned…

Hypocrisy: Matthew 7:1–5 (NKJV): Judge  not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgement you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Woke-ism is a false religion antithetical to the love of God. By resembling closely the values of equality, respect, justice and sharing the common good, Woke-ism is a trojan horse or a fifth column full of hate, racism and lawlessness. This is anathema to the love of God.

Jesus, the Son of God, is the pinnacle of love and sacrifice by redeeming sinful humanity through his redemptive work on the cross. Jesus redeems all who believe upon Him regardless of their age, race or gender. Woke culture, on the other hand, is envious and demands that other people make a sacrifice for its cause. The only love displayed by the woke is self-love before the idol of humanism.

Jesus asks us to forgive those who harm us and to model Christlike behaviour so that, we, as brothers and sisters in Christ, may be part of His eternal family.

Luke 6:27–36 (NKJV): “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Woke culture is unforgiving and will unnecessarily find evidence of the most minor social sin or mistake endlessly. They will ignore apologies and insist on the harshest penalties for the person who has offended them. This is in stark contrast to Christ, who commands us to forgive others so as to be forgiven.

Matthew 6:14–15 (NKJV): “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

We live in dangerous times when radical humanism, through critical race theory, has blinded the population to instigate a false utopia on Earth. Like all godless utopias, this too is destined to fail. We are in the end times and Satan has developed a counterfeit image of God’s Kingdom, a kingdom that is selfish, merciless, unforgiving and self-righteous. The citizens of this counterfeit kingdom choose to force others to do as they do, and believe as they believe. Woke-ism and Cancel Culture are signs of a rising anti-christian religion. True Christians will never deny the Lord, who is the only Hope,  Light and Truth in this fallen world. Upon the appearance of the Anti-Christ, Christians will be persecuted because they will never relinquish their love and faith in Christ.

2 Timothy 3:1–7 (NKJV): But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Woke-ism embraces victim-hood. An adherent of this cult is quick to absolve themselves from responsibility and guilt in order to project it upon other people and races. Instead, God will judge our own thoughts, words and deeds – regardless of social status, gender, race or age.

Psalm 7:8 (NKJV): The Lord shall judge the peoples;
Judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness,
And according to my integrity within me.

Most Christian Churches have been infected by the cancerous humanism of woke-ism. Be wary of anyone who preaches division of race, reparations for historic injustice, and is also unforgiving and condemns people or groups for opposing woke-ism. These are false prophets who are sowing division, instead of uniting the Body of Christ. The Anti-Christ spirit will show in those who protest for peace while inciting violence, looting and killing. The evil spirit also thrives in those who encourage guilt and unforgiveness when Christ has plainly commanded mercy and forgiveness to the least one of us. They preach the necessity of giving when they sacrifice nothing and gain much; they speak lies and hide the truth; they tolerate much evil, yet cannot tolerate biblical truth. These preachers are the blind, leading the lost, into a pit of everlasting flames.

Matthew 7:15–20 (NKJV): “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America

Authored by Victor Davis Hanson via The Epoch Times

There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently.

1) Money is a construct.
It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much.

Prior presidents ran up huge annual deficits, but at least there were some concessions that the money was real and had to be paid back. Not now. As we near $30 trillion in national debt and 110 percent of annual GDP, our elites either believe permanent zero interest rates make the cascading obligation irrelevant, or the larger the debt, the more likely we will be forced to address needed income redistribution.

2) Laws are not necessarily binding anymore.
Joe Biden took an oath to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” But he has willfully rendered federal immigration laws null and void. Some rioters are prosecuted for violating federal laws, others not so much. Arrests, prosecutions, and trials are all fluid. Ideology governs when a law is still considered a law.

Crime rates do not necessarily matter. If someone is carjacked, assaulted, or shot, it can be understood to be as much the victim’s fault as the perpetrator’s. Either the victim was too lax, uncaring, and insensitive, or he provoked his attacker. How useful the crime is to the larger agendas of the left determines whether a victim is really a victim, and the victimizer really a victimizer.

3) Racialism is now acceptable.
We are defined first by our ethnicity or religion, and only secondarily—if at all—by an American commonality. The explicit exclusion of whites from college dorms, safe spaces, and federal aid programs is now noncontroversial. It is unspoken payback for perceived past sins, or a type of “good” racism. Falsely being called a racist makes one more guilty than falsely calling someone else a racist.

4) The immigrant is mostly preferable to the citizen.
The newcomer, unlike the host, is not stained by the sins of America’s founding and history. Most citizens currently must follow quarantine rules and social distancing, stay out of school and obey all the laws.

Yet those entering the United States illegally need not follow such apparently superfluous COVID-19 rules. Their children should be immediately schooled without worry of quarantine. Immigrants need not worry about their illegal entry or residence in America. Our elites believe illegal entrants more closely resemble the “founders” than do legal citizens, about half of whom they consider irredeemable.

5) Most Americans should be treated as we would treat little children.
They cannot be asked to provide an ID to vote. “Noble lies” by our elites about COVID-19 rules are necessary to protect “Neanderthals” from themselves.

Americans deserve relief from the stress of grades, standardized testing, and normative rules of school behavior. They still are clueless about why it is good for them to pay far more for their gasoline, heating, and air conditioning.

6) Hypocrisy is passé.
Virtue-signaling is alive. Climate change activists fly on private jets. Social justice warriors live in gated communities. Multibillionaire elitists pose as victims of sexism, racism, and homophobia. The elite need these exemptions to help the helpless. It is what you say to lesser others about how to live, not how you yourself live, that matters.

7) Ignoring or perpetuating homelessness is preferable to ending it.
It is more humane to let thousands of homeless people live, eat, defecate, and use drugs on public streets and sidewalks than it is to green-light affordable housing, mandate hospitalization for the mentally ill, and create sufficient public shelter areas.

8) McCarthyism is good.
Destroying lives and careers for incorrect thoughts saves more lives and careers. Cancel culture and the Twitter Reign of Terror provide needed deterrence.

Now that Americans know they are one wrong word, act, or look away from losing their livelihoods, they are more careful and will behave in a more enlightened fashion. The social media guillotine is the humane, scientific tool of the woke.

9) Ignorance is preferable to knowledge.
Neither statue-toppling, nor name-changing, nor the 1619 Project require any evidence or historical knowledge. Heroes of the past were simple constructs. Undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees reflect credentials, not knowledge. The brand, not what created it, is all that matters.

10) Wokeness is the new religion, growing faster and larger than Christianity.
Its priesthood outnumbers the clergy and exercises far more power. Silicon Valley is the new Vatican, and Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter are the new gospels.

Americans privately fear these rules, while publicly appearing to accept them. They still could be transitory and invite a reaction. Or they are already near-permanent and institutionalized.

The answer determines whether a constitutional republic continues as once envisioned, or warps into something never imagined by those who created it.

THE WOKE CANCEL CULTURE TRUTH AND PURIFICATION MOVEMENT?

A satirical, tongue in cheek look at the logical consequences of Woke Cancel Culture.
By Dr Ragnar Purje.
(Submitted on behalf of Dr Purje by a friend)



There is a reason the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is a universal truth, because everyone, but everyone says so; plus, and addition to that, the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement allows for the all-important development, enhancement and
advancement of the unadulterated purity of mind, purity of knowledge, and of course, purity of pure truth, not someone else’s opinion.

The unadulterated pure mind
This unadulterated purity of mind, purity of knowledge, and of course, and the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement’s purity of truth is supported, enhanced and advanced by the Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge.

The only universal truth
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is now the only universal truth that can be involved in all aspects of human life, and human disciplines. Because of this purity of universal truth, this means the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has the right to comment on and advance the potential of education, science, music, the arts, all levels of entertainment and the media, and of course medicine and surgery.

The nirvana of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will, and proudly so, as demonstrated by words and actions, intends to remove, expunge and obliterate all of human history that does not meet with their values, and the associated true values of the Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge. This will mean there will no longer be a need for (and in fact there should not be) a multitude of cultures. There will now be but one culture, the Cancel Culture, which is all about truth, purity and knowledge. To recognise anything to do with the past, would, of course (as proudly, openly, sincerely, and very enthusiastically demonstrated by the nirvana like actions of all of the members of the Committee of the Rolling Statue Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement), be an acceptance of racism.

The Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge)
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement in conjunction with the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge) will, of course – and rightly so – continue with the removal of all statues, except for the statutes the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement approve.

Already known
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement have already made it known, with the support of all of the people of the world, that the statues (which the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement does not approve of) are an abhorrent and daily reminder of racism, elitism, separatism, chauvinism, sexism, genderism. This means that these unapproved statues cause pain. They must be – and as the world has seen – these appalling historical statues and monuments have, now thankfully, been brought down by culturally enlightened and unified cheering crowds, all of which clearly and unambiguously live by applying the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge).

Multiculturalism is racist
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has shown that cultures must be cancelled. This now extends to the universal Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement that informs that any culture that allows multiculturalism to exist must not be allowed to exist. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about the universal truth of cancelling cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is not about double standards or hypocrisy.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth
It lives for and it only applies the truth of what is the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. Therefore, it is a self-evident Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement universal truth that the word multiculturalism is inherently a racist descriptor. That is because the word and the social behaviour of multiculturalism separates humans into a multiple of separate cultures; and this needs to be canceled. What can no longer be accepted is the separation of the purity of one humanity. Multiculturalism separates humanity, which self-evidently means that multiculturalism is racist.

Separate cultures are racist
The human race, because of the Ministry of Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement, and Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity (that of Purity, Truth and Knowledge); acknowledges that separate and different cultures can be racist, sexist, elitist. These different and separate cultures divide humanity and that means they are racist to the core. This means a nation, any nation, by definition (as initiated cultural movement that is now the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement) is also racist.

Walls and borders must be purified
That is because every nation (which has its own separate culture) has metaphorical as well as physical borders and walls. And these abhorrent borders and walls separate the human race. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about one thing, and one thing alone, bringing all of humanity together as one human race. That means the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is not cancelling anything, it is enhancing every person and culture by cancelling all other cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is all about the purity and truth – of one culture – which is all about one truth and one truth alone: the purity of the singularity of humanism and equalism.

National flags are racist
This then of course means, according to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, that every national flag must be purified by the fires of the members of the Flag Burning Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement Committee. Added to this of course, is that any form of oral language and literature (digital or otherwise), that talks about or presents an image of these national racist flags, will need to be purified by fire. Fire is purity. Fire purifies.

Burning of books purifies a culture
History informs that one of the most profound and sacred ways to cancel a culture is to burn their books. Australia is proud to boast, that recently that it was able to metaphorically burn two magazines, by having them forcibly from the shelves of supermarkets. This is the immense social power that the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is able to bring to bear on any organisation, government, culture collective or social entity. There is but one humanity. There is but one voice. Everything that separates and divides humanity is – as not presented or agreed to by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement – is racist.

Cultural clothing is racist and sexist
What this purifying of the human race, and the expunging of the racism of the past must, universally and self-evidently, lead to where cultural clothing must cease to be worn. The cultural clothing of the past has been and is racist and sexist. This racist and sexist cultural clothing has also led to racist and sexist attitudes. All clothing now must reflect the purity of the human form, the human race, and universal human condition, that human spirit, and of course, the universal truth and purity of what is the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement.

The words male and female are sexist
The sexist words of male and female can no longer exist, they will be cancelled. There is now – under the protection of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement – only culture and one humanity. This single culture and humanity will be reflected through the cultural clothing that will now be worn. There will now, thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, be only one style of cultural clothing. This cultural clothing will reflect the human form, the one culture, and the one human race. There will be no male or female apparel; this has now been cancelled by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. There will only be culture specific clothing that will be worn by everyone. The words male and female will be cancelled, these sexist words will now be replaced by the words gender of choice.

Make-up of any kind is racist and sexist
Coupled with this cultural clothing purity, there will be none of the previous sexist and racist presentation and use of make-up. All of the different colours, shades and face alterations that is offered and presented by make-up, is the worst type of racism and sexism that exists. There is but one face, and that one is the one face of the human race. The human race must be displayed in its open and natural glory; not hidden under the artificiality and falseness of make-up make-believe.

Face coverings of any kind are racist and sexist
Any face covering, by any person separates the one human being from the other. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is about removing all racial and sexist displays that separates. As with make-up which changes the human face, the face covering, which hides the human face, is, as noted by the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is unacceptable. The human face must be gloried equally. Neither make-up, and most certainly any face covering, does not glorify equality. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement is all about equality in its purest form and presentation.

Sport is racist and elitist
The racist sport of the past will now become the sport of humanism and equalism. There will no longer be any need for uniforms. That is because, self-evidently, and of course, all of the different teams and national uniforms of the past were about separation, rather than inclusion, and as such uniforms were and are. Thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement, instead of having the racism, and the elitism that sport of the past produced, and its associated uniforms, sport can be enjoyed for its purity, without uniforms. What matters in sport is the equalism of wantness.

Selection and competence are racist and elitist markers
No more selection of teams. That is the equivalent of slaves being selected. There will no longer be scores or scoring. There will be only the wantness of participation. Team and/or any individual athlete selection, will no longer be based upon, or even considered to the previous racist and elitist standard, that of selection-based competence. The elitist and racist word competence will be expunged and be replaced by the equalist word wantness. If an individual, wants to play sport, they will be admitted into any sport they want. No person will be asked to leave, or be removed from any sport unless the individual in question wants to leave. The racist and elitist culture of the Olympic games is now cancelled. In its place the world will have inclusion, participation, wantness, and equalism.

Refereeing and sports administration is inherently racist and elitist
Referees, umpires, judges, adjudicators, administrators, will longer be part of any sport. That is because these positions are inherently racist and elitist. These positions separate humans rather than unite humanity. Humans are being judged. Humans are being examined according to their actions. There is no purity of sport and culture when humans are judging other humans. Judging another human is inherently racist and elitist.

Individual human wantness replaces the racist and elitist act of selection
Individual sport participation will, of course, as noted above, be based on individual human wantness. Wantness brings with it the purity of personal celebration and desire. When this takes place, the human spirit is praised and elevated. There will, of course, be no placings. Having sport judged by having placings is inherently racist, and elitist. Placings denigrate the celebration of the universal human condition and that desire of wantness. The act of placings brings about different classes of humans. One only needs to look at the racist past to witness this appalling application of placingism, racism and elitism. All sports, whether it be teams or individuals, separate humans from each other. This is now cancelled. Human equalism is what matters.

Rules and regulations are brutal, racist, exclusionist and most certainly elitist
All sports are a witness to the appalling racist, elitist and brutal application of rules and regulations that always only led to an outcome where physical, mental, emotional and psychological pain was being inflicted on the participants, all of the enjoyment of a howling racist crowd. Sport is racist. Sport is elitist. Sport does not celebrate the human spirit. However, under the guidance and care of the Ministry of Cancel Culture Truth and Purification Movement, sport will now be an activity that is equalist, and which therefore celebrates the human race and the human spirit.

Cultural music is racist
There are different forms of music that are played in different cultures. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will not permit this abhorrence and denigration of the universal human condition to continue. Just like the racist statues, these different cultural forms of music, will be thrown into the rivers of past despair. Culturally different music separates. Music that evolved from the fields of slaves must no longer be played. Just like the statues, music that began in the fields of the forlorn, must, along with the statues, be expunged and thrown into the cold dark waters of the racist past, so that this pain of these slaves of the past can no longer (as with the statues) continue to be reminded the world of slavery.

Orchestral music is racist and elitist
The presentation of orchestras and the elite separation that is used to form orchestras is elitist and racist. That is because this process does not allow for wantness to be celebrated. The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will ensure that wantness, will be the prime social and single cultural driving force that will force orchestras to become culturally inclusive. There will no longer be orchestral recitals; that is because they are elitist, and this elitism leads to racism, and this artistic form of racism must be swept away by the winds of cultural purity, truth and knowledge.

Cultural names are racist
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement will not allow for names. Names signify gender. Names separate humans into different groups and classes. Names are therefore inherently racist. Names will be replaced by numbers and barcodes. Names and barcodes are gender neutral, they are inclusive to all of humanity.

Product names are racist
Product names separate and therefore this leads to racism. Fruit and vegetables. What a terrible indictment that is to the concept of equalism. Fruit and vegetables need to be known as food. This is food for wellbeing and food that purifies the human spirit. Food and product names will be cancelled.

The equalism of equiugenics must be the only truth of purity
What will follow next will take a little longer, but it will remove the potential for any form of racism that once existed in the past to take any traction in this now one pure culture and society. This process of equiugenics will take place through the enhanced unified universal human entity of bringing all cultures together and living under the umbrella of one culture, the culture of humanism.

The purity of equiugenics in action
Equiugenics, like the removal of racist statues, will begin the all-important biological unification of the human race. The equiugenics process will not only improve and equify the genetic quality of the human race, it will bring about a process where all humans will not be judged on any differences; such as the racist and elitist descriptors of the past, such as race, competence, creed, culture or colour. That is because the process of equiugenics will provide the wonderful purity of where there will now be only one human culture, one human creed, and one human colour. What was once the racist, sexist, elitist, human past will now (as with the racist statues) be expunged and relegated to a past that will no longer be thought about or read. All references to this abhorrent history will have been burned, and ashes of this racist past will be thrown into the air and be gone with the wind forever.

Inspirational ethics of Robespierre
With this insight and purity of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and the actions initiated by the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge) it is time to recall the revolutionary thinker and truth seeker, Maximilien de Robespierre. Robespierre is the equivalent of being the leader of what is now the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. It was Robespierre (just like the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement) who urged the formation of an army of the people, the purpose of which was to enforce revolutionary laws and sweep away any ideas or actions that were contrary to what is now known as the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement.

Now is the time
Now is the time (as proven by the actions of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement), to now dismantle (physical and otherwise) of all vestiges of the past that in any way contradicts the thinking, the purity and the philosophy of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and that of the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge), which is ensuring (just like the Ministries of Truth and Love, that we – the unpure and ignorant – can and will only watch films, and read books that meet with the principles and the standards of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement. The Third Reich tried to do this process in the now irrelevant past; however, because they The Third Reich, were not, and had not evolved cognitively, or culturally to being intellectually illuminated (i.e., the state of being ‘woke’), their actions were in actual fact, selfish, ignorant and culturally impure.

Brick by brick, plank by plank, fire by fire
What this now means of course, that the Woke and Cancel Culture Community will now begin to purify, by dismantling (brick by brick) and they will burn the premises in which they now live, so that none of these impure and filthy colonial reminders, and filthy capitalist establishments remain standing. All that will remain will be the pure earth.

This will be the start of the self-purification process
Integrity and sincerity To ensure that the absolute purity of integrity and sincerity, all members of the Woke Cancel Culture Community, will no longer wear they filthy and culturally corrupt clothing that has been weaved and worn. Again, to ensure that there is nothing but the purist of intentions taking place, all members of the Woke Cancel Culture Community will burn all of their capitalist clothes, they will no longer wear anything except the clothes they have woven themselves. If this cannot be achieved, their sincerity and integrity will be their clothing. The motto for this will be: “It is better to wear nothing, than to be corrupt, live a lie and be a hypocrite.”

The evolution of enlightenment
The Woke Cancel Culture Community are intellectually illuminated. This means that only purity exists and hypocrisy cannot exist. This evolution of enlightenment, which the Woke Cancel Culture Community has, and has demonstrated to the world by and through their purified and righteous acts of rioting, looting, arson, and the felling of statues, and the destruction of all impure monuments; the Woke Cancel Culture Community will no longer carry or adhere to having colonial or capitalist money, or any plastic symbols of this filth, i.e., what are known as credit cards. To ensure this integrity and sincerity advances further, the Woke Cancel Culture Community will no longer use anything object that has any connection to the colonial past or the capitalism that has grown from this impurity. This will mean not one member of the Woke Cancel Culture Community will use taps for running water. They will not use electricity. They will not use cars, aeroplanes, or any form of transport that is connected to the filthy past. Not one member of the Woke Cancel Culture Community, will approach or use anything to do with medical services, science, engineering, music, the arts, or anything that has an association with the colonial past and that of capitalism. Anything less than this would be hypocrisy of the highest order. Which cannot and will not be permitted. Those that transgress this purity, will be purified.

Anything less would be hypocrisy
All of the members of the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement (and all of their supporters in society and the media) are totally woke aware, and they all irrefutably know, and understand (in their own mind) that they are now unambiguously and totally duty bound by their own established rules (which is supported by their actions); that this – the destructive purification – of their own (former racist establishment) which now must be expunged from their lives and their social history. Anything less would be hypocrisy.

The purification of all racist statues, monuments and buildings
Once this has been achieved, to ensure their universal truth advances society, it will be then that they will have the right to dismantle the past, such as the Acropolis; the Egyptian pyramids; the Aztec structures; all Roman structures; all churches, temples and mosques; all government administrative buildings in the entire world; museums; art galleries; the wonderful list of buildings to be purified is endless. Anything less would be hypocrisy.

The Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth Knowledge)
We as a human race must now give thanks to the Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement and to the Universal Woke Cancel Culture Deity of the Trinity (Purity, Truth and Knowledge), that has lifted the torch of cultural purity and has now provided the means for all humanity to destroy and burn all reminders of the past that were so impure and putrid. All of which began of course by the racist thinkers of the Reformation, that led to the Age of Reason, which became the unenlightened Age of Enlightenment, and which eventually led to the appalling racism of the single culture, and the later racism of multiculturalism; but only in Western Civilizations.

One pure universal culture – anything less would be hypocrisy
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has created a new form of thinking, and Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge has provided to the means of how this process is to be achieved and perpetuated into one pure social culture forever. Everything else (thankfully), will be gone with the wind.

One pure social culture forever – everything else will be gone with the wind
The Woke Cancel Culture of Truth and Purification Movement has created a new form of thinking, and Universal Streaming Deity of the Trinity of Purity, Truth and Knowledge has provided to the means of how this process is to be achieved and perpetuated into one pure social culture forever.
