“Brave New World” was published in 1932. The novel, by Aldous Huxley, presents a nightmarish vision of a future society called the World State.
In “Brave New World” there are no meaningful relationships as “everyone belongs to everyone else,” children frolic in the bushes playing games of erotica, God and the family unit do not exist, people are brainwashed to believe what the state wants them to believe, and history is rewritten.
The rise of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is a Woke phenomenon in which the oppressed demand representation in the society that oppresses them.
Another Woke trend is the rise of transgenders. The oppressed transgenders stand against the society that oppresses them. The number of youths between 18 to 24 who identify as transgender has soared from 2 percent in 2017 to 39 percent today. The LGBTQ message is everywhere and it is targeting young people.
Equity is Marxism Rebranded
Marxism has never worked as evidenced by the collapse of the Soviet Union, the human rights abuses in China, and the disintegration of Venezuela’s economy.
The solution to this failure of Marxism is to invent a new label that will appeal to the masses. Enter the latest rebranding of Marxism: “Equity.” Many are inclined to embrace “Equity” because it sounds good. It sounds like “Equality.”
Woke Takeover of Education
The leftist academic of the 1930s, Max Horkheimer, was a locked-and-loaded Marxist. He predicted a century ago, “The revolution will not happen with guns but incrementally as we gradually infiltrate educational institutions and political offices.”
Professor Alexander Riley of Bucknell University said, “The university as a site for radical propagandizing is getting stronger every day, steadily erasing the traditional view that the mission of higher education is the pursuit of objective truth.”
In July 2023, Emily Drabinski was put in charge of the American Library Association. Last year she posted a Tweet in which she declared herself a “Marxist lesbian.” In a recent interview, she said “I was excited to highlight and celebrate two aspects of my identity that are important to me.”
Former Navy SEAL Mike Sarraille blames a lack of confidence in the military on “the leaders and policies they are trying to enact that disrupt the military from focusing on their core mission.”
Americans Do Not Want Woke Programs
America today has many of the nightmare visions that Huxley wrote about in “Brave New World.” Children in elementary school are asked what gender they want to be. The LGBTQ community wants to eliminate the traditional family unit. History is being rewritten.
Woke ideologies will destroy themselves because they are not based on truth. American consumers, with over $21 trillion in disposable income, have reached the end of their patience with the “Pride” parade and corporate America is waking up to the fact.
A sign that people see flaws in the Woke ideologies is mainstream comedians are making jokes about it.
