James Lindsay, super-antiracist @ConceptualJames

An important difference between you and the Woke is that if they see the opening, they'll demand your resignation or firing in a heartbeat and won't stop until they get it. You, meanwhile, will argue against removing from their positions even when they abuse them, and you.

This does give you the moral high ground, but it also guts every institution and removes all access of reasonable, liberal, and fair people to the power to resist. You cannot argue your way out of a power grab. You have to hit back until they're scared to raise their fist.

Keep getting this wrong long enough, and you won't have a society in which your morality is worth anything. Get it right strategically and powerfully enough just a few times, and you can actually start to fight for your principles again. Time's almost up.

Got asked: Does it really end when the lies becomes unsustainable?

It depends.

If they have enough power at that point, no. If so, that's when the Terror begins.

This guy used to be a lefty -- until he got a look at the woke Terror that's coming.

I wonder when the "right"-leaning press of Conservative, Inc. will wake up to reality.
