I’ve an excessive amount of respect for Maher’s expertise, and often for his concepts as effectively, however I merely don’t get his presentation within the video beneath. Nobody, woke or in any other case, is making an attempt to “re-invent the very nature of human beings.”
The “woke revolution,” if there’s such a factor, is solely an extension of the “kindness revolution,” whose spokespeople are people just like the Dalai Lama. It merely means: You could have a option to make about the best way you behave round different folks: you will be form and respectful, striving to be enlightened and accepting of the world’s folks, or you may select to be an asshole.
Nobody is forcing you to decide on the previous over the latter, however those that contemplate themselves woke would like that you simply did.
FWIW, the U.S. Structure primarily forces the federal authorities to be woke, insofar because the fifth and 14th amendments prohibit legal guidelines that confer benefit to 1 teams vs. one other.
