The Art of Wokeism | Opinion

Most have heard about The Art of War, in which Sun Tzu says, “if you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.”

For us to be able to effectively regain control of the country in 2022 and 2024, we need to first understand who our enemy is. At the most basic level, our enemies are the elite members of the far-left Democratic Party who wish to destroy the founding principles of our country and everything we stand for.

Their most powerful tool is messaging and information warfare. And you know what they say, whoever controls the perception of reality often dictates what reality is going to be. This has caused anyone with any kernel of critical thought often left feeling confused – and make no mistake – that effect is setup by design.

The media and elite cognitively terrorize the most vulnerable masses, ruling and manipulating with fear-based tactics. This has created a large generation that is being used and misguided for the purpose of political gain and total realignment (The Great Reset, anyone?).

It has created a space where asking questions is now immoral.

Question BLM the organization’s motives? You’re a racist.
Question mask efficacy? You’re anti-science and a grandma killer.
Question digital IDs? You’re an uninformed conspiracy theorist.
Question the election results? You’re an anti-democracy extremist trying to overthrow a legitimately elected government.

It’s a full collusion course.

With messaging peppered at you from every single angle, realistically, it’s easy to fall prey. Why? It has created a tiered society: the science followers and those who care about others vs. the selfish conspiracy theorists, misogynists, and racists. A classic good guy vs. bad guy narrative. The educated vs. the ignorant. The light vs. the dark.

Of course, nobody wants to be unjustly labeled and slandered, which causes the unique phenomenon of virtue signaling for nothing other than reassurance and praise with a corresponding dopamine spike. “Look at what a good person I am!”

Once that behavior is rewarded, it is repeated. And once that army grows, it becomes easier to condemn anyone who dare question or disagree with those on the frontlines for the “greater good of society.”

This is a cyclical recurrence as the elite decide what narrative profits them best, and unless challenged, will continue with its blatant goal of disruption and control.

But in true form, as always, the democrats have overplayed their hand. Media trustworthiness has plummeted amongst the greater American public. More people have begun to understand that they are being lied to, or at best, manipulated.

So, do we know our enemy? I think so.

Do we know their motives? We’re starting to.

Can more people wake up? Definitely.

Our future is dependent on all of us collectively pulling back the curtains and shedding truth on the mainstream narratives. Our messaging will either enlighten those who reject our messaging and bring them on-side, or push them further into the arms of the Church of Wokeism.

Time will certainly tell.
