Woke word-policing is now beyond satire

“A story is told of a revolutionary socialist who was strolling with a friend when they encountered a beggar. The friend began to hand a few coins to the mendicant, but the revolutionary stopped him, exclaiming: ‘Don’t delay the revolution!’ The socialist thought worse would be better. More social misery would mean more social upheaval. ‘Arise ye prisoners of starvation’ and all that. In America (take that, Stanford), the worse wokeness becomes, the better. Wokeness is being shrunk by the solvent of the laughter it provokes.” (03/08/23)
