This Present Madness – 1
Because “Wokeness” is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything. It falsifies the past. It falsifies the present, and it falsifies the future. It falsifies statistics. It now controls much of the police apparatus. It pretends to respect human rights. It pretends to persecute no one. It pretends to feel nothing. It pretends to pretend nothing. Individuals need not believe all this stuff, but they must behave as though they did, or they must at least tolerate it in silence, or get along well with those who work with it. For this reason, however, they must live within a lie. They need not accept the lie. It is enough for them to have excepted their life with it and in it. For by this very fact, individuals confirm the system, fulfil the system, make the system, are the system.
