  • Stuff wokeism.  Now another way to insult people or 'shame ' them publicly while hiding in the shadows of  anti social media.

  • Anyone who uses the word woke other than as the past particple of the verb to wake (up) is guilty of a crime against the English language. To create and use the word “wokeism” is a hate crime against the language.

    You’re welcome😉
    many thanks for your opinions on modern English usage Mr Cawdrey  :)

    Little sexist no?

  • ‘Woke’ is one of those words anybody can define on the hoof and claim ownership of.
    In that spirit I claim ‘woke’ to mean anti racist, and that’s that.

    Fingers moving in a slightly different direction I reckon
  • What I find annoying about 'woke' people is the need for them to constantly prove how compassionate and caring they are on Social Media.

    They'll literally go into an empty room wearing a mask and tweet about how they're saving the planet from Covid.

    I much prefer it when people are incompassionate and uncaring on social media, gives you a good indication of who to avoid.

    This is it.  You are more bothered by people saying they give a shit than you are by the issues that they give a shit about.  
    I'd respect them if I actually thought they were contributing to solving a legitimate issue, but they don't. The purposes of the tweet are to make them appear like they're a better person than you, and to put you down if you challenge them.

    Sounds like the purest conjecture and projection. If I were to ask for examples....?

    Is this what woke is then?  Being too darn caring on social media.  The government need to step in and do something about this before it spirals out of control and I’m surrounded by too many attempted nicers.  
    It's clear Nick is stating that some people act like they care when in reality all they want is Social Media likes...

    Yes the social media fakes just trying to get likes. 

    A bit like Jeremy Corbyn and the Virgin train that time... Where "all the seats were taken".

    Sure, but when I see someone being nice I tend to take it at face value.  Otherwise we’d all walk around in a constant state of scepticism.  It’s probably better to have a society where people attempt to be nice in public than one that’s full of people pointing the finger at those attempting to be nice.

    In what way? Shaming people who are woke or aren't? Genuinely intrigued.

    If I see it in person and it feels genuine then I'll obviously take it at face value, unfortunately a lot of the time when it is on social media it cannot be trusted. A large part of why I am not particularly active on Facebook, Twitter, Insta etc. 
  • It’s not exclusive to Woke politics and Likes though.

    Many people use posting on social media to self-validate their views and to make one feel better about themselves for expressing those views.

    Without even realising it….thinking they’re posting for the greater good.

    As I’ve said before, I’m a Labour supporting remainer, but the kind of people you get on Twitter with the Euro  Flag, the FBPE, the Zero Covid icons are mainly sheep desperate to be heard for their own good.

    Well then we’re in agreement then, social network is the problem.  Not “woke”.

    Not everybody walks around in a constant state of scepticism, but either sadly or gladly for me I actually do. I am wary of everybody, especially in the field of philosophy and their outlook on life and politics, until I feel comfortable that they’re not a wrong ‘un in my terms.
