    Here's an idea about how to fight against woke ideology. It's not my idea, it came from James Lindsey during a conversation with a woman who describes herself as "deprogrammed". The solution: don't fight it. Leave.

    In your workplace, school/college/university, in your church, wherever you start hearing the buzzwords and language of insane social justice, when it has infected people to the extent that the purpose has now become purely anti-racist goals (by that I don't mean merely being not racist, but their definition) don't fight it. Leave. Leave the institution to fail on its own, which it probably will eventually after all the sane people are gone.

    In the conversation James Lindsey was talking about the thousands of emails he's received since George Floyd's death. People talking about how work is now all about social justice. In one email a scientist wrote him and said his colleague told him that he doesn't see the point of working on projects when the real work should be anti-racism. They should just focus on that. Lindsey told him to leave and start up a company that competes with his former company and don't let any of that woke bull**** in. Eventually the "woke" company will not be able to compete. Well, non-compete agreements notwithstanding, the idea would work. It works in schools. Evergreen comes to mind. They've been bleeding enrollments since all that **** happened with Bret Weinstein leaving. Brain drain. If organizations lose all the sane people they can't survive. They'll either have to recognize the folly and correct it, or they can just ride that ideological ship all the way to the bottom of the ocean.

    I just rewatched Divergent with my wife last night. Wokeness and the identity movement is a lot like that movie, at least the first movie. Later, they inject a drug that turns people into mindless drones, but divergent people aren't susceptible. I see people all around succumbing to the insanity, but it doesn't affect everyone. Some people, for whatever reason, appear to be immune to it. And then the drones turn on us. Even our own friends and family, unless we pretend to be woke too.

    In the movie, divergent people have the attributes of all the factions, not just one of the factions. I'm not saying a movie proves a theory. Just that it kinda explains the theory. Okay, so if there's anything to Jonathan Heidt's moral foundations theory, maybe the people who are most susceptible to indoctrination have only developed one or two moral foundations, where people who tend not to be susceptible have developed all or most. I think conservatives are pretty immune because they tend to have been raised with a keen sense of reciprocity fairness (you earn your way, personal responsibility, reap what you sow, etcetera).

    Jamil, I like the idea, but it doesn't work in all sectors. Example: I can't start my own hospital to work in as a nurse. Is there an answer in the theory for that? Not being sarcastic, I want to know.

    Understood. Not everyone can be an entrepreneur. Not everyone is a leader. I should have said, *a* solution, not *the* solution.

    I'm not gonna start my own company. But, if my employer went insane, and I'm not saying that's even gonna happen, but hypothetically, I'll probably start looking for a job with a company who's leaders are "divergent". Obviously not everyone will be in a position to change jobs especially during this covid hell. But to the extent people can start their own companies, change jobs, change churches, change schools, whatever, it will at least help defend some of this nonsense. As the saying goes, get woke, go broke. A broke woke society can't stay woke indefinitely.

    I have spoken.
