An enlightening, yet chilling, article provides a snapshot into the premise of my new book. Dr. Hanson walks through the logic of WOKE thinking that commences with a distorted version of “diversity,” is fostered by misrepresentations (even downright lies), and results in a society we will regret. History has illustrations of the end result of uniformity and of diversity, according to Dr. Hanson:
“Just as uniformity can result in both stability and stagnation, so too can diversity sometimes ensure either dynamism or bedlam. In all these cases, the emphasis on tribalism is the critical determinative. If a 95 percent Asian or white country defines itself in blood-and-soil terms as did Japan of the 1930s and early 1940s and Germany between 1933 and 1945, then it becomes toxic, unlike a more natural assumption that race is incidental, not essential, even in a racially uniform society.”
“The same is true of diversity. Accentuate it; sharpen differences; treat individuals as part of tribal collectives—and a descent into violence and anarchy is assured. But consider tribal differences superficial, and human commonality more important than racial difference, then diversity can be enriching through voluntary contributions to the whole in terms of varieties of food, music, art, fashion, and literature. But again, envision diversity as iron-clad calibrations of identity in which the individual cedes to the collective tribe, then a tribally regressive America will be no different from the world elsewhere and our fate is assured.”
Even worse, this is the “end game”…
“So, we are headed, dangerously so, into an historically ugly, hateful, and volatile place—all the more so because we lie that it is utopian when it is pre-civilizational and reactionary.”https://amgreatness.com/2023/01/02/the-baleful-cargo-of-woke-diversity-worship/
You Say You Want a Revolution…?
I reach a similar conclusion in my new book. My premise addresses race, religion, and politics from a public safety perspective. Showing how these factors will result in a bifurcated, lawlessness, and ultimately authoritarian society, the “end game” will not be good. My thinking is supported with some excellent quotes from Dr. Hanson and many other extraordinary thinkers. I hope my premise is wrong… but if you are interested check it out:
