Though we can not escape original sin does not mean we should not fight against it.

 J. B. Shurk has an article today at the American Thinker entitled Jiggery-Pokery Wokery in which he uses the Scottish term jiggery-pokery for dishonest behavior to describe what has come to be the term woke. It is a good pairing because to be woke is to be deceptive, dishonest, and to evade reality. When you and everyone around you recognize that this woke business is jiggery-pokery, one also has to wonder why it seems to be taking over the whole world? No doubt the term jiggery-pokery sounds silly, and thus seems the perfect adjective for what has become wokeism, but as Shurk notes:

Yet it is not silly, is it? As amusing and bemusing as its zealous adherents appear, their devotion to wokeism's edicts (I won't call them "principles") is deadly serious. Any small business–owner who has had the misfortune of struggling to earn a living near the scene of some perceived injustice providing the pretense for Antifa and Black Lives Matter arsonists to unleash a new criminal campaign of burning, looting, and murdering in the name of "justice," knows that once the woke go berserker, no innocent person or private property is safe. The woke love to destroy whatever they touch — culture, infrastructure, social cohesion, rational thought. To be woke is to embrace chaos and injury as a philosophy.

Shurk then goes into a litany of destructive ideas and ideologies that make up the woke "thought" processes. All of these woke notions contradict reality and common sense, and one suspects that getting people to parrot things they know, deep down, are lies is the whole point. One wonders why people don't realize that they can go outside, see the world as it really is, and realize they are being lied to?  Indeed, it seems as if it is actually a mass psychosis.

If deception, violence, and obedience are all part of the woke creed, then contradiction is its life-force. Black lives matter, but all lives do not. Racism is abhorrent, but defining people first and foremost by their race is somehow just. Engaging in stereotypes unjustly blames all members of a group for the actions of a lone individual, but white people alive today must be forced to pay for the crimes of people who not only lived centuries ago, but also are not likely blood-related ancestors. When all people are treated equally, white supremacy wins. Equity demands that we destroy systemic racism by systematically dividing the races and treating them differently. The less white someone is, the more deserving of special privileges — unless that person has Asian ancestry, which necessarily requires discriminatory punishment when decisions about college admissions and job hiring are made.
Women should be protected from an inherently sexist society, unless their mothers choose to abort them. Black Americans should be protected from an inherently racist society, unless their mothers choose to abort them. Parents should have no say over what schools teach their children but complete say over whether their children are aborted. Men have no right to an opinion about abortion since they cannot physically become pregnant, yet anyone who claims that men cannot become pregnant is horrendously transphobic. Menstrual products should also be placed in all men's restrooms. Again, science demands it.
Hydrocarbon energies are bad for the environment, but mining for the rare earth elements needed for electric vehicle batteries, covering endless hectares of land with solar panels, and dotting the skyline with giant fan blades that routinely kill flocks of birds are all environmentally friendly. Fair wages are essential, yet African and Chinese slave labor should be ignored. Using coal and natural gas is dastardly, yet recharging electric vehicles with power generated from coal and natural gas is ingenious. Extreme cold kills far more people than extreme heat, yet we must obsess over global warming. The cycles of the sun, the rotation of Earth's magnetic core, ocean currents, geothermal activity, and the shifting magnetosphere all directly alter the Earth's climate, but man alone must be held responsible for changes in the weather.
Destroying Western economies by eliminating their relatively inexpensive use of hydrocarbon energies will somehow save the planet, even while the globe's most populous developing nations refuse to follow the West's economic suicide. Forcing impractical green solutions that increase the cost of living for everyone alive today means that more and more people will suffer from poverty and famine, yet killing people alive today is somehow preferable to risking the lives of future humans who have not yet been born (unless the unborn human is an "unwanted pregnancy"). If "kill today to save tomorrow" policies are not ludicrously woke, then nothing else is.

Shurk points out that jiggery-pokery wokery acts as both a religion and an elaborate con. This insight is the dead give away to the origin of wokeism. It is nothing less that the snake in the Garden of Eden convincing Adam and Eve that if they eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, they will be like gods. It is this temptation to be like gods, indeed to take the place of God himself and sit on His thown, that is at the root of jiggery-pokery wokery. Everyone has this temptation. But though we can not escape original sin does not mean we should not fight against it.

Deciding what to quote from this article is nearly impossible because one wants to quote the whole thing. That violates the fair use doctrine, but Shurk has packed this article tightly with information you should understand if you don't want to fall into the woke trap. So go read the article yourself.

  1. RE "mass psychosis"

    The official framing of the mass formation (or mass psychosis) "phenomenon" is misleading and wrong in terms of what the whole true reality is. The false hope-addicted psychologists and their acolytes want you to believe this is "just some temporary occasional" madness by the masses when it is but a spike of a CHRONIC madness going on for aeons with "civilized" people --- read “The 2 Married Pink Elephants In The Historical Room –The Holocaustal Covid-19 Coronavirus Madness: A Sociological Perspective & Historical Assessment Of The Covid “Phenomenon”” ....

    One of these mainstream psychologists who have been spreading this whitewashed reality, Dr. Desmet, also fails to see that the PLANNED Covid Psyop is a TOTALLY deliberate ploy because he doesn't think (after more than 1 year, even 2 years, into this total PLANNED scam!) it's ALL intentionally sinister as he stated in a prior podcast (this makes him witting or unwitting controlled opposition).

    In the May of 2022 podcast with James Corbett he stated that "some people tend to overestimate the degree of planning and intentions" (behind the COUNTLESS, VERIFIABLE, FULLY INTENTIONAL, FULLY PLANNED atrocities by the ruling tribe of psychopaths over the last century alone) and see all of it as being PLANNED which Desmet called "an extreme position" ... Sound logical thinking is "extreme" and therefore false and sick in his demented delusional view!

    This all means Desmet is ALSO a member of the masses of lunatics, an ACTIVE CARD-CARRYING MEMBER of mass formation!
