The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion movement that some call “Wokeism” is mostly about destroying Western norms and rebuilding a new society. The activists behind the movement are Critical Theory inspired Cultural Marxists. Which is why they speak incessantly about oppression, the marginalized other, & smashing this and that, especially Capitalism & Heteronormativity.
There are plenty of things in the West which need our urgent attention. But tolerance of Race, Religion or Sex differences has never been higher. Which partially explains the invention of a fake category called ‘gender identity.’ (Most of us don’t believe we have a ‘gender identity.’)
I agree with Shellenberger. DEI promotes intolerance and censorship.
