Hello WNR Friends,
To get a clear view of what it means to be “WOKE” you first have to understand the actual source of wokeness and why it’s appealing to so many people. This series will attempt to explain woke, where it started (in the sense of its understanding now), where it’s headed, and what you can do, as a rational human being, to fight against the woke extremism taking over.
The growth of simply being ‘rebellious’ in the 50’s to where we find ourselves in the early 2020’s is both amazing and terrifying.
I was thinking about how we went from ‘rebellious’ to ‘enlightened’ to ‘progressive’ to ‘liberal’ to now ‘WOKE’. It isn’t pretty, but there is a very clear thread combining each moment in history.

Almost everyone that became ‘enlightened’, started with being rebellious.
They had a family unit. Parents. A mother and a father. And more often back then, the parents weren’t divorced.
In the early 50’s there was some semblance of family cohesion. Adults were still adults – and at least, partially respected.
But the nuclear family began to be broken up as the children born in the 30’s, who missed going into World War 2, realized that less than a decade earlier kids their current age were eager to sign up and fight.
Soon after in the 60’s these same rebellious kids became enlightened and took the “enlightened” thing to heart.
All of the sudden, they were smarter, brighter, more knowledgeable (3 things that mean the same thing) than anyone else; if only in their own mind. But after several years, being enlightened just wasn’t enough any more.
Then the progressive wave came.
Writers like Paul Ehrlich came out claiming that there were too many people in the world (without actually doing much about it himself, if you know what I mean). Much to the detriment of human society “Dr.” Fauci and Bill Gates took this message to heart (more on that later).
Ehrlich was an enlightened person. As an enlightened person, he had all the answers. With all the answers, the next logical step was to become a progressive – someone not only with all the answer, but with ‘forward’ thought on how we as a society should do things. Progressive.
He wrote a book named “The Population Bomb” that extolled the virtue of limiting the population to only himself and those that agreed with him. His thesis? The world needed less people, not more. And not surprisingly, many did agree with him. The book clearly made them feel special and set apart from the rest of the population (much in the same way Hitler’s Mein Kompf did certain Germans).
In fact many continue to both agree and work to see Ehrlich’s dream become a reality.
How did he become the darling superstar of death culture – and thus WOKE culture?
Traumatized from years of enlightened “thought” (after the Vietnam war), Universities were so afraid of teenagers, they gave him a position of power.
The media, not considering thousands of people just died in the war – and needing a new ‘outrage’ – gave him a platform (what’s better to talk about on TV than having too many people on the planet? Seems outrageous we have to live with so many people – and how will we feed ourselves? – more on that too).
And the progressive politicians, those that learned early how to divide and conquer a population, couldn’t resist. They were going to trumpet that ‘progressive’ idea. Especially that idea.
It wasn’t long before the progressive turned into the liberal.
A rebellious person doesn’t know anything. An enlightened person knows everything. A progressive is an enlightened person who also knows what everyone should do about what they know. A liberal (politician) is the one who carries out the plan the progressive has.
Literally taking Ehrlich’s advice to heart, Teddy Kennedy took it upon himself the lower the population – if only by one person. The senator from Massachusetts drunk drove his car into a canal and killed a woman in the process.
Nothing happened to him, and in fact the great people of Massachusetts continued to vote for him, election after election, until he ultimately ran for President of the United States.
He was a hero of the woke liberals (much like Che Guevara, who literally murdered woke people all the time, but still finds room on their t-shirts), up until the day he himself died.
Today people think President Biden might be removed from office because he had classified papers stuffed in his home office and garage, and everywhere else Hunter hid his crack pipe – including all the hookers he was with.
They soon forget that the former Governor of Virginia, a man named Ralph Northam, was found to have used a black face trope some years back, and survived politically to end his term ‘with honor’.
Not only did Northam survive that, he also survived for ostensibly calling for the killing of babies born alive, but unwanted by the mother. Infanticide. A liberal’s dream.
And woke people loved the idea.
These people, they know no end to depravity, but we’ll get to that …
