Looking behind the curtain of woke and finding a yoke
As always excellent and on point. I agree 1000% ... the Woke are not working class, they are not people who have struggled in any way shape or matter. They are entitled, and their entire agenda is a self-processed form of narcissism, like no other. They are full of rage and they hate themselves, as much as they hate anyone who doesn't hate themselves. They use trauma like a commodity.
Please call them "parasites" instead of "elites". There is much power in words...
People have to decouple their basic needs with "the state"/ "the system", but people want money.
The parasites print the money, and fund all the brainwashing required to keep their servants happy.
Just as "The Devil" card in the Tarot, humanity's chains are open, they don't leave because they love their servitude. They are bound by pleasures of the flesh, and that is the fuel of the parasites.
They've developed a sustainable system for themselves, and quietly got most of humanity onboard, while hiding the actual sustainable nature of the world we live in. Something as simple as the understanding of "compost" - most urbanites give you the fluoride stare when you mention it.
"Waste" becomes fertilizer, becomes food, becomes "waste", and on, and on...
Everything was done to break that link in people's consciousness, even the toilet, where they have you defecate on the most sacred resource, water. Were you to defecate on a hole in the ground, microorganisms would munch on that, and the cycle of life carries on.
They had to build very complicated infrastructure to keep people from seeing a flower come out of the place where they previously pooped or buried some living creature. Then, they called it "progress".
Open Wokeism pledges allegiance to the power structure, no matter how illogical.
It is "Politically Correct" in the Bolshevik sense, I think, though I wasn't there for that epoch.
Interestingly, there was apparently some sort of Great Awokening, and maybe even some sort of public health “emergency,” in the third and fourth centuries BCE. Chuang Tzu reports:
FLIGHT FROM BENEVOLENCE
Hsu Yu was met by a friend as he was leaving the capital city, on the main highway leading to the nearest frontier.
"Where are you going?" the friend asked.
"I am leaving King Yao. He is so obsessed with the ideas of benevolence that I am afraid something ridiculous will come of it. In any event, funny or not, this kind of thing eventually ends with people eating each other raw.
"At the moment, there is a great wave of solidarity. The people think they are loved, and they respond with enthusiasm. They are all behind the king because they think he is making them rich. Praise is cheap, and they are all competing for favor. But soon they will have to accept something they do not like and the whole thing will collapse.
"When justice and benevolence are in the air, a few people are really concerned with the good of others, but the majority are aware that this is a good thing, ripe for exploitation. They take advantage of the situation. For them, benevolence and justice are traps to catch birds. Thus benevolence and justice rapidly come to be associated with fraud and hypocrisy. Then everybody doubts. And that is when trouble really begins.
"King Yao knows how dutiful and upright officers benefit the nation, but he does not know what harm comes from their uprightness: they are a front behind which crooks operate more securely. But you have to see this situation objectively to realize it.”
- Chuang Tzu (tr. Thomas Merton)
IMO this is just as good as great reset for dummies.
You nailed it - divide-and-conquer extends all the way to the top of the pigpile - no exceptions. Which is what I think brings the whole pigpile down.
'a classic American soul-wobbly child who is very rude to the parents over not getting the toy he wants—but applied to intellectual toys." So true! but between the childhood vaccine schedule, the magic rectangle, helicopter parenting and tiktok, these children are the most infantilized generation in history (and not all of them are, some of them are incredibly smart). How do we get the slow ones to run when they can't even crawl and they can't get off the phone long enough to learn how? I'm all for being as kind and supportive as we can be, but not if I have to join Facebook to do that.
Maybe our interests are best served by building bridges with those who aren't stuck in an alternate universe? Supposedly it only takes 10-15% of a population to generate a seismic shift
Acknowledging how we all have been victimized in ways, while not living in permanent victimhood, this is tricky, but quite needed. Thank you Tessa for speaking from the heart to the heart.
it’s hard to confront the woke with the truth because wokism does the job protecting their ego (from admitting they were scammed)… my experience is that those subscribing to wokeness are loathe to be proven wrong at any cost even if they end up paying with their life (maybe the definition of narcissism?)
As a trauma survivor who had very successful PTSD treatment, I could not agree more with your analysis here. Nothing will change until people start getting their trauma healed. Everyone in modern society is carrying trauma, because that's how abusive modern life has become. And it's clear that white people are now being "colonized", same as was done to our Native brethren.
I think TPTB know trauma treatment empowers people and prevents manipulations like "woke" from taking over, because there are no almost no trauma therapists under the age of 50 currently in the US. Everyone I know who got advanced degrees in counseling psych in the last 20 years were never taught how to heal trauma. Correct PTSD reatment is not difficult and nearly everyone responds very well to it, but it remains almost unknown in the psych field. It affects everyone and causes addiction, depression, and anxiety (the main reasons people seek out therapy), but the psych field is mostly looking the other way. This may partly explain why psychologists were silent about the lockdowns and shots--they have no trauma training and most cannot even recognize PTSD symptoms. Misdiagnosis is commonplace--complex PTSD is usually mistaken for schizophrenia or other severe disorders, and I've seen it take patients 10 years to get a correct diagnosis. Conventional talk therapy works well for pretty much NOBODY--it's not how you treat trauma--but that's all most people are offered. I worked in hospital mental health, and NONE of the docs and nurses on the psych unit or ER knew how to identify or treat PTSD. And yet, most patients I worked with on the psych unit had severe PTSD symptoms. Since I am not a doctor or APRN, no one would listen to me about trauma treatment.
We have scientific proof that addiction is caused by trauma (physical or psychological), but like everything else, good science is being ignored and dogma prevails. Even in AA, most people don't know they need trauma treatment. Addiction treatment centers rarely address PTSD. If they did, people would not relapse nearly as often, so it's bad for their business model.
So here's what I'm doing to help change things: I am volunteering with the International Association of Near Death Experiencers (IANDS) to help create a manual on trauma treatment because SO many NDErs have PTSD and are struggling. IANDS is the first organization I know of to address this directly with members. I am hoping this spreads to 12 step groups, churches, anywhere wounded people are congregated. I'm also working with some people to help create an organization that supports advanced spiritual healing and helps NDErs enhance and utilize the gifts they brought to our world from the Other Side. UConn's long term studies of NDErs found that we all return with a "backpack full of spiritual gifts" but few are able to understand and utilize their gifts because they're bogged down in PTSD. Imagine a world in which 10 % of us have pronounced spiritual gifts--healing abilities, creative abilities, etc.--and we know how to use them. I'm convinced this may be key to changing the world.
I think the biggest thing the globalists are overlooking is human spirituality--Klaus and Bill do not think it exists. They are drowning in wetiko, as are alphabet agencies and governments worldwide. And this will be what tramples them in the end.
Interesting points, although the focus on healing and crying together seems rather too much of therapeutic culture to my tastes. Mere grief is insufficient as a motivator to action.
Wokeness serves as a socially divisive force, yes, absolutely - it weaponizes crimes of the past to justify crimes in the present, committed by the same sorts of criminals. Yet it has another, very important function - it morally disarms the target populations, currently white westerners, by severing us from our ancestors, and by gelding our men. And this too is in keeping with past patterns! You mention the forced religious conversions, for example - these divided one generation from their heritage, and replaced the warrior energy of the pagan heroes with the meek and submissive message of the church (itself a perversion of what that message was meant to be....)
If a people is to be made to submit, its men must be made weak. This, I would argue, is a core dynamic within wokism. It splits men off from women, giving men nothing to fight for; and then shames them for the very instinct to fight. The resulting passivism and atomization results in societies of inert, pulverized dust - easily rolled over and digested by the Great Resetters.
Incredible article! Beautifully written in manner that invites an awakening with healing. Can’t wait to read more of your content!
One thing that is always left out in a discussion like this is the important relevance of our first few pre- cognitive years. During this time of foundational learning, if we are responded to as nature intended, we learn to trust that we will be given what we need, learn to trust our own knowing, learn to initiate for ourselves. We are learning this in our bodies, not in our heads. When our cognition matures, what we learned in our bodies is still there but it is hidden, and we are ripe for giving up our power to these tragic guys because we don't trust our own knowing. Blaming others for the situation we are in may be partlalky true, but the only way to empower ourselves is by looking inside ourselves and see why we want what we want and respond the way we do.......Why do we always look outside ourselves? A wonderful book, Gabor Mate's 'The Myth of Normal', discusses this process both scientifically and the social implications for it.
I hope that in some future post that you can drastically simplify this message (less text ?)... and then point to some action steps that would lead to change. Thanks for all that you do...
And at the end of the day every movement is like the emperor's New clothes. Not one solution in a world that imagined itself into a corner where words no longer had direct meanings. Remember only food can be eaten. How's that food for thought?
Wow!!!!! Thanks so much for this. The muffled scream...fine, thanks, Epic!!! You always touch my heart in several places. Your love is evident in all your writings.
Thanks, great analysis, with which I agree. Indeed, I find this informs and overlaps with a series of articles on the role of development and corruption of healthy personal boundaries, I am currently writing about.
This right here:
"We are not our ideas. We are a lot more than that. And identifying with our ideas is a dangerous drug regardless of what the ideas are."
I couldn't be more biased*, but this is still a fundamental truth you bring to light. Ideas are tools, as much scalpels as they are sledgehammers, and as such no idea has anymore merit than its effects when actually implemented, from which follows that any and all ideas are only worth the measurabe effects of said implementation.
Ideas cannot be measured against their own principles and abstractions, only against what actually happens when they are put to use as instruments and patterns for behaviour, nomatter if it is on thw macro or micro scale.
So christianity must be judged as much by looking at christians acting like they think Christ would have done accoring to his teachings, as by the deeds of their churches and the clergy down the ages. Or islam, or hinduism or judaism or... The same goes for any -ism such as marxism or anarchism or capitalism or libertarianism or...
*Having taught ideas, which equires the ability to use meta-cognition to understand them and be fair to them, obviously I'm as biased as can be here.
The quoted part is something all authoritarians hate. It removes their ability to excuse their wrongdoings by blaming a power outside their own will, be it party doctrine or clerical orthodoxy.
