How wokism is a cult and a mind virus.
"To mitigate these risks, individuals must cultivate critical thinking skills, maintain an open-minded approach to diverse perspectives, and actively seek out balanced information." Absolutely!
In times of ideological reconfiguration and political realignment (as today), it is difficult to define what the 'left' position actually is. But for me, there are five things that it absolutely cannot be. 1) ignorant; 2) misanthropic; 3) conformist; 4) authoritarian; 5) dishonest. That these 5 qualities have come to characterize the 'woke' movement, means that this is no longer the left. It is something else.
I'd be interested what people here thing of these two articles in the TransAtlantic on this topic of ideology, anxiety, and 'social contagion' among the young, regarding the gender identity ideology, etc. I think readers here would find them interesting…
