"Wokeness" and "Identity Politics" ... far worse than "Corona" ?
Recently I came across the term "woke" / "wokeness" and even with the various information in which I read the term, I still have no real idea about what the term is supposed to mean. I did get the impression that while praised by some authors as a community or cultural or educational achievement and result of some kind of human development, there were plenty of grave concerns and rejection by others who appeared (at least to me) to have a more sound and common sense thinking and life philosophy.
It seems as if the "woke" movement? idealogy? is sort of a cousin to "Identity Politics", which has become (at least in my perspective) the root of many evils over here in Germany over the course of more recent decades. Society seems to have been and to continue to be robbed of standards for a prosperous and stable community life. People are almost not willing anymore to say what they really think because they fear denunciation, loss of job or career, defamation of being "Nazi", etc ....
Seems to me that such "woke" and "identity politics" are far more dangerous and deadly "viruses" for a community than the currently hyped up "Corona" epidemic that has taken over almost all the headlines.
