Woke Marxism undermines law, and for it to succeed, it must pervert law. So far, it has been extremely successful at this. If our remaining judiciary remains unaware of the infiltration and subversion, we will probably lose our country. If it wakes up and discharges its duty we can save our country.

In Marxist literature, you run into the words “reality,” “realities,” and “actual” all the time. Marxists believe they, and they alone, have hacked the system and come to the only true understanding of reality. What they mean is their own weird and dangerous misinterpretation of it and nothing else.
Social-Emotional Learning Explained. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is one of the hottest scams in academia, but what is it? It is a psychological grooming mechanism used to open up children through “social” and “emotional” means to Woke Marxist ideology and praxis.
Schools throughout North America are reproducing the youth radicalization program utilized by Mao Zedong. They’re doing this by combining Critical Race Theory, Gender Theory, Queer Theory, to funnel kids into politically active, radical and revolutionary personal identities.

In most applicative contexts, Critical Social Justice Theorizes willful ignorance to be the reason for just about any disagreement with the claims of Critical Social Justice, especially if a member of some “dominant” social group.
Under Critical Social Justice, "Oppression" can be so subtle as to be undetectable even by the people who experience it until they develop a critical consciousness (become woke).
When advocates of Critical Social Justice ask people to be more "tolerant," what they mean is to take on a particular form of self-serving intolerance that acts in service to their radical & revolutionary agenda.

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay: The Woke Manipulation of Democracy. Much of Woke activism works by equivocating between two meanings in a strategic way: boring everyday meanings to gain access and win arguments; specialized meanings to do their activism once they have the power.
Marcuse makes the case that to achieve a liberated utopia, man will have to be changed at the level of his fundamental needs and his biology, and that this can be accomplished by making him live in a society that “introjects” a new critical morality into him. It’s a truly alarming piece of work.
