Wokeism, Soft Power and the Globalist American Empire


This is a very good short video that outlines Darren Beattie’s argument that Wokeism is the official ideology of the GAE, which it uses at home and abroad against its enemies. To the extent that it is a successful instrument in the projection of power, the success of Wokeism is inevitably tied to the success of the GAE and the latter will defend the former by all available means. I would add, Wokeism isn’t, as some suggest, simply the march through the institutions of ‘cultural Marxism’, rather, it is the unfolding of political liberalism within our political regime.

Enjoy.

What the fuck is “GAE”? I skipped through the video and could find no clue. I have never even heard it used as an acronym for anything.

In other words the push to foist an American brand of authoritarianism on the rest of the world. He makes some excellent points in comparing and contrasting TikTok with home grown platforms, Goodyear tyres and military wokism.

the idea that these people march through institutions just be woke, is foolish

woke is not their motivation. its a outward expression of their idiocy

the guy in the video? the intersectionalists would be wetting themselves with laughter at what they just made him say

yeah…nah

interesting that the blessings of woke-liberalism don’t get extended to stupid white bigots

An interesting viewpoint. GAE is basically the administrative state and its parasitic stranglehold on the corporate world. The primary stick is government contracts and handouts something which pretty much all large corporates and numerous other institutions grovel for.

Woke is the power tool of the bugman state. He is certainly right that woke is no different to a colour revolution.

Before the Civil War set the American federal government on its seemingly inexorable path of centralisation, expansion and empire, the patriotism of most Americans, north and south, was distinctly local – their parish, their county, their state and only then the union. Political and social conservatives might want to reconsider reordering their priorities along those lines while they wait out the collapse of the “Global American Empire”.

There are of course numerous willing participants in the bugmen state’s drive for woke supremacy. Without the big dollars from woke billionaires, of which there seems to only be a handful, the soft coup of 2020 could not have happened.

This is a semantic issue. The notion of political liberalism is fine, but general. It does include power relationships, usually so that someone else, that is, the white, male, Christian capitalist, is to blame for sins of the West.
To the extent that it uses the disparity of power between different groups, it does include some element of Marxist thought. Marxism provides a neatly packaged solution in revolution: the overthrow of capitalism (but not until I have obtained my fair share of the capitalist goodies!)
State socialism (i.e. Marxism) will not be the outcome, because the market economy is too successful. It does however mean the denigration of the productive and responsible and the continuing infantilisation of life, which has been happening for a while. Note the rise of one particular teenager named Greta! It also means continued economic retrogression as social policy continues to enable this irrational and infantile clique to lead.
It also includes a healthy does of postmodernism, which is just an excuse for me to substitute my subjective theory of ethics for those of those self-interested money-grubbing capitalists.
I agree that wokeism is not simply cultural Marxism, but it is a type of intellectual civil war. And their zealots will continue until they destroy everything that they do not like.
There is no Marxist path here to a new utopia, just the envious and embittered promulgating their view of the world to which we all must conform.
(An interesting analysis by that chap. Thanks for the video.)

They got away with stealing the 2020 election and the legal system looked the other way. There’s no penalty for massive electoral cheating in the USA. The idea that it will stop now is wishful thinking.

High Treason is what Gen Milley did, in planning to disobey the President’s orders but there he is, still in the same role

it is the same with the green protestors, as long as they are seen to be “doing the right thing”, crimes are forgiven

If you can’t accept that there is another constituency in the country, that it deserves as much to be represented as your own, even as you can’t understand or agree with it’s aims, but instead of accept perfectly normal differences between sections of society and argue your case fairly, you prefer to make common cause with and promote the propaganda of foreign powers. You know what that makes you?
It makes you exactly like the left was during the days of the communist bloc.
Too bad that so many have turned out to be just as bad once the boot was on the other foot.

the cleavages that are appearing are not ‘perfectly normal differences between sections of society’

..
There are indeed different interests in society, which must be moderated through a political process. The alternative is autocracy.
..

neither do they ‘argue their case fairly’.

..
Read it again. I didn’t say they did. I indicated we should.

Duarte was fine though. Good value. Getting cops to blow away druggies on the street was an eminently workable solution to eliminate illicit drug use. After all, the (PWC audited) stats showed this to be true and who wouldn’t believe the stats coming from a regime sponsoring state sanctioned drive-by street murders.

Probably not the best then to suggest that an interlocutor “prefer[s] to make common cause with and promote the propaganda of foreign powers”.

I’m increasingly of the opinion that Putin doesn’t need an out; Zelensky does. We are probably a 2-4 weeks away from a major battle south of Izyum. Russia is redeploying its 1st Guard Tank Army into the area. They are going to create a cauldron enveloping a third to half of the Ukrainian Army and once that is finished, they are likely to seek out the UKR in the field until it surrenders or is destroyed.

‘Ere, look Dover, what exactly is it about the West in the 21st century that makes you hope it is defeated in Ukraine?
I assume, might be wrong, that you think there are things currently that make us less worthy of defending.
If so, can you name those things? What are, say, the top two things about the West that makes you view this conflict the way you do?

Arky
October 21, 2022 5:53 pm

‘The West’ isn’t being defended in Ukraine.

..
But it is fighting there.
So can you answer the question? What are the two things you most think has undermined the West’s moral authority to contest this invasion?

Because it seems to me that is the premise of phrases such as this:

Wokeism is the official ideology of the GAE, which it uses at home and abroad against its enemies. To the extent that it is a successful instrument in the projection of power, the success of Wokeism is inevitably tied to the success of the GAE and the latter will defend the former by all available means.

You have dodged the question.
Soot isn’t about wokeism, globalism, new world order or any of that.
Great.
As it is no longer a moral crusade for you, maybe you can lose the stupid transparent Russian talking points and just report and comment on what we actually know as facts.
No more crap about swastika bracelets that didn’t actually have swastikas. Or fantasises about destroying the bulk of the Ukrainian army with sweeping battles of encirclement.
