Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall, when the wise are banished from the public councils, because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.
Wokeness – It’s not just a fad; it’s not just some suppuration from the boil that is Millennial culture; it’s not even just a sociopolitical ideology. It’s a theology. It meets all the criteria and has all the material and cultural trapping of one.
There’s a lot of talk among “White” Liberals and Progressives about being a good White ally to groups such as #BlackLivesMatter, and this is just about the stupidest thing I’ve heard of.
You can’t be their ally and they don’t want or see as an ally, and they likely never will do so.
If you’re told to be quiet and only speak in total, unquestioning support of their manifesto, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you don’t and can’t understand a group’s purpose, agenda, and/or raison d’etre and that it is not your place to have it explained to you, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you are inherently wrong and/or evil and that supporting the “allied” group is necessary, yet will not ever be something that will make you no longer inherently wrong and/or evil, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
If you’re told that you actively attack and work against your own people in total support of the “allied” group, you’re not an ally; you’re a subjugated people.
So set those particular quisling dreams of allyhood aside. To #BlackLivesMatter, you’re just another evil, untrustworthy White who deserves to be and must be subjugated in order for the Blacks to get what they want.
