What’s Wrong With Woke

Halloween Costume: “Psychology of a Woke Student” (self-titled)
What’s wrong with woke is what is wrong with Marxism more generally.
As Sowell wrote, when discussing history Marx demonstrated a remarkable intellect, so much so that a fair portion of Marx’s thinking had become part of the intellectual apparatus of every thinking person. Yet in addition (Sowell wrote):

“Much of the intellectual legacy of Marx is an anti-intellectual legacy. It has been said that you cannot refute a sneer. Marxism has taught many – inside and outside its ranks – to sneer at capitalism, at inconvenient facts or contrary interpretations, and thus to sneer at the intellectual process itself. This has been one of the sources of its enduring strength as a political doctrine, and as a means of acquiring and using political power in unbridled ways.”
– Marxism: Philosophy & Economics (Thomas Sowell, 1985)
Sadly, this anti-intellectualism weds the woke to policy prescriptions which generally fail in two ways:

by generating unanticipated outcomes that overwhelm their stated goals;
by assuming a State so invasive that freedom could not persist.

They remain wedded to such policy prescriptions because their anti-intellectualism makes them deaf to counterargument, even obvious counterargument. Indeed, just like Marx wrote, “Military justice is to justice as military music is to music,” I would append, “…and military music is to music as Marxist philosophy is to philosophy.”
It could happen to anyone, but it especially happens to Marxists (and the Woke) because their policy prescriptions assume a static deterministic world. Adam Smith is wrote of such a person (whom he termed, “a man of system”):

“The man of system, on the contrary, is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests, or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-​board. He does not consider that the pieces upon the chess-​board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, in the great chess-​board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own, altogether different from that which the legislature might chuse to impress upon it. If those two principles coincide and act in the same direction, the game of human society will go on easily and harmoniously, and is very likely to be happy and successful. If they are opposite or different, the game will go on miserably, and the society must be at all times in the highest degree of disorder.
– “A Theory of the Moral Sentiments, Adam Smith 1759)
What is odd is that in many cases they are bright people. And it is always odd to be well-acquainted with someone, often someone quite wonderful, who turns out to have such a defect in their intellectual construction. (I do have a private theory on that: psychometric testing reveals that the most most salient psychological trait of Lefties is low self-esteem, and I suspect imagining themselves seated at such a chessboard satisfies some control-fetish/revenge-fantasy instinct). So one makes allowances as one would others beat up by life in various ways. “Be kind,” said Aristotle,”for everyone you meet is having a hard battle.” And cherish them in the same way one might cherish someone who has cone deaf, is a burn victim. One really stops perceiving it in so negative a way when one accepts it, and sees the person behind the injury. […]

Covid-1984

George Orwell’s work 1984 is presciently foresees tyranny’s need for propaganda that renders listeners incapable of critical thought, to the point that they cannot process what is in front of their eyes and even the food in their mouths.
Fine illustration was given in these early minutes from the movie 1984, following Winston (the protagonist) through a typical day. To a loudspeaker incessantly broadcasting statistics demonstrating Big Brother’s progress in all areas of life, we witness their physical impoverishment (a friend of Winston’s asking for a razor blade learns that Winston has been using the same razor blade for six weeks), as well as (through another colleague) Big Brother’s assault on language as a way to control independent thought. We also witness the inability of the brainwashed to process the world they inhabit: the loudspeaker’s lies about Big Brother’s successes cheers up Parson while he works his way through a bowl of mush and meat-substitute. He is so indoctrinated he cannot process the reality in which he is sitting or even the food he is tasting.

Here is another situation that resembles this scene from 1984. Yesterday in the United States Senate, a British actuary presented the following information from the UK (which has excellent public health surveillance): getting vaccinated makes one somewhere between 26% and 145% more likely to die.

British data shows that all-in mortality is 26% to145% higher for vaccinated than non-vaccinated
And yet, I know plenty of educated, normally sensible people, who cheerfully continue their defense of Big Brother’s handling of Covid-19. They espouse their willingness to continue subjecting themselves to shots with all the alacrity of 1984‘s Parson’s reciting statistics about Big Brother’s successes while shoveling down his gruel and meat-substitute with gusto.

Scientists Hybridize Worm + Human = David Priess

Say what you will about business, the fact remains that in government, one can make wormy twisty Philadelphia-lawyer answers like this and not only survive, but be celebrated for it. They get promoted for it. In business, a guy like this gets fired in 30 seconds. Seriously, I’ve seen it happen. I’ve done it. Numerous times I’ve stopped a meeting to take a guy like this into the hallway to fire him. Once or twice I did not even stop the meeting to do it.
I am curious about the internal monologue of worms like this. Leave your best guess in the comments. […]
