Why the Successor Ideology will not name itself
Western Jihadism seems like an accurate description, as converts to this new ideology (or new faith) often try to proselytize around them (with friends, family, on social media,...). For many of them, the end justifies the means.
Interesting piece, thanks.
Great piece. Wasn't "woke" originally a self-descriptor? I presumed it was a reaction to the Right's successful co-opting of "red-pilled".
I usually use Social Justice, which for me at least meets them where they are and seems both generous and accurate yet also situates them in larger, older historical movements, basically encompassing everything from the Puritans to the Progressive movement to Marxism and socialism (and whatever this ideology may be called it is undeniably some mix of Protestantism and Marxism/Leftism).
But I think it helps to add something like "theocrats" or "theocracy" because this also helps pin them as the angry ayatollahs that they are.
But when this ideology is wielded by the rich & powerful (people like Gavin Newsom or Kamala Harris or anyone at the NY Times etc) and not a blue-haired They straight outta the Gender Studies Dept, lately I've been using "progressive oligarchy", which I think also hits the nail on the head.
I have long referred to it as simply woke, but lately I have been calling it transhumanist, for the way this phenomenon has made common cause with corporations and the likes of Blackrock, and the globalist crowd of the WEF, WHO the UN, Democrats, the military and intelligence community. The woke instinctively embrace a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) because they know it is the absolute tool in cancelling your enemies, and you might imagine it would be administered exactly like Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, PayPal etc, except greater than all.
