Reading: The Woke Supremacy

Evan Sayet has just published an important and readable short book, "The Woke Supremacy: An Anti-Socialist Manifesto".

An excellent (and also short) review of the book is contained in the article:

No Laughing Matter, by Thaddeus G. McCotter, American Greatness, August 21, 2020. A few excerpts follow:

Sometimes it takes a comedian to have both the perspective and the courage to speak the truth. Which makes Evan Sayet’s The Woke Supremacy essential reading today....

He [Sayet] does, however, hammer (and sickle) home that whatever may be the noble goals espoused by a socialist, the system they seek to establish must eliminate private property, countries, and religion.

This is because, without possessions, the individual does not have the resources to stand up to a tyrannical government. Without nations, there are no other governments strong enough to challenge the Globalist rulers’ every mandate while, without religion, there is no higher moral authority to countermand the rulers’ every dictate, no matter how egregious and immoral those dictates might be.

And, before private property, countries, and religion can be eliminated, who do socialists invariably eliminate? “In order to create the paradise they imagine, the Democratic Socialists will have to find some way to eliminate [those who disagree]…all of the Others need to in some way be dealt with.”

As Sayet proves, cancel culture is but one means of dealing with the Woke Supremacy’s opponents.

So, who are these socialist Woke Supremacists? Sayet identifies them thus:

Whereas the Marxist Socialist believed the Supreme Trait—the characteristic that when shared by all the people would create the perfect world—was found in the “Worker” and the German Socialist believed it was found in the “Aryan,” the Democratic Socialist is convinced that the Supreme Trait is found in those they call the “Woke.”

The Woke are convinced that, by eliminating discriminating thought, they will eliminate all of the evils of discriminatory practices. They believe that, by eliminating rational judgment, they’ll eliminate all of the hurtfulness of judgmentalism and all of the harmfulness of prejudices. Their plan is to eliminate all of the wrongs of the world by eliminating the recognition of right and wrong itself....


What Is the Ultimate Endgame For 'Woke' Ideology, by Ben Bartee republished by The Daily Bell, ZeroHedge, 13 April 2023:

Woke ideology asserts that the story of human history is best explained by an eternal struggle between the oppressor and the oppressed. Categories in this dichotomy are delineated along essentialist and immutable categories of identity, such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. People, irrespective of their individual life experiences, are assigned to oppressor or oppressed categories depending on an amalgamation of these characteristics, forming a hierarchy of victimhood.
