The Psychological Toxicity of Woke-ism

It’s hard to comprehend a more toxic, psychologically unhealthy or self-destructive mentality than socialism. Or what today we label “woke-ism”.

Think about the underlying mindset of woke-ism.

Unearned guilt. “You’re a racist. I don’t have to prove it. I know you’re a racist by the color of your skin. If you think you’re not a racist, you’re wrong. If you demand proof or evidence of your racism, or you require me to define my term ‘racism’; — then that’s simply more proof of your racism.”

Envy. “Those with more have harmed you — because they have more. The one percent steal from the 99 percent who supply their wealth. Take it back. Achievement has nothing to do with wealth — including any wealth you earn honestly. There is no honestly earned wealth. All property is theft. Take what’s yours; you deserve ten times more than you’ll ever manage to get.”

Neurotic fear. “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Reason and rationality can solve nothing. Personal responsibility is a total waste of time. There is no power of positive thinking.”

Lack of critical thinking. “So long as the woke media says it, it’s true. So long as the network or website is CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC, then all you need to do is trust the concerned, worried and professional expressions of the geniuses reading the news. That’s all you need to know; and all you need to think.”

Blind obedience to (woke) authority. “Life sucks. Nothing can help you. ONLY the government can help you — the right, woke government officials, that is. Trust in government. Do what you’re told.”

Rage. “Life is a vale of tears. Everything that can go wrong will go wrong. So get angry. At least when you’re in a wild, mindless rage, you don’t have to feel the terror of existence. Act like Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Or at least support them. THEY are the means of destruction, because destruction is all we have. It’s the only alternative to perpetual terror.”

Most mental health professionals (myself excluded) are leftists. Most of them buy into “woke-ism”. Yet the vast majority of these therapists, doctors and psychiatrists would NEVER espouse the mentality that their own sociopolitical ideology imposes on the world. Whatever their errors or failings, they would NEVER seek to impose the wreckless and destructive psychological toxicity on individuals that they happily vote for/endorse for the world-at-large.

Woke-ism is madness unleashed. Buy into it at your own peril.

Roger Daltrey: Woke Generation Creating a Miserable World

The Who legend Roger Daltrey says the ‘woke’ generation is creating a miserable world that serves to stifle the kind of creative freedom he enjoyed in the 60s.

The iconic frontman made the comments during a recent appearance on Zane Lowe’s Apple Music 1 podcast.

“I don’t know, we might get somewhere because it’s becoming so absurd now with AI, all the tricks it can do, and the woke generation,” said Daltrey.

“It’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves. I mean, anyone who’s lived a life and you see what they’re doing, you just know that it’s a route to nowhere,” he added.

The singer noted how he was lucky to have lived through an era where freedom of speech was encouraged, not silenced.

“Especially when you’ve lived through the periods of a life that we’ve had the privilege to. I mean, we’ve had the golden era. There’s no doubt about that,” he said.

Daltrey also slammed the negative impact that social media has had on the world, saying it has undermined truth.

“It’s just getting harder to disseminate the truth. It’s almost like, now we should turn the whole thing off. Go back to newsprint, go back to word of mouth and start to read books again,” he said.

While Daltrey’s comments may not be mind-blowing, any celebrity speaking out against the mob that has cannibalized culture is something to be applauded.

Once again, this only tends to happen with older celebrities who have already passed their peak of fame and entered icon status. They are beyond cancellation.

For any up and coming celebrity, or even one who is at the top of their game, to question ‘generation woke’ is career suicide.

Which makes it all the more ludicrous to continue to see identitarians, notably the LGBT movement, continue to claim they are ‘fighting oppression’ when their mantras are echoed by every cultural institution, media outlet and corporate entity in the west, while anyone who utters a whimper of dissent is swiftly cancelled.
