WOKENESS. Being WOKE.
"Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment." Ecclesiastes 11:9
WOKENESS is the world of Kant, where "lawfulness without law" rules, i.e., where the law of the flesh, i.e., the child's carnal nature, i.e., the child, "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates rule without the father's/Father's authority (restraint) "getting in the way," thus making the 'purpose' of life the augmentation of pleasure, establishing pleasure over and therefore against doing right and not wrong according to the established commands, rules, facts, and truth of the father/Father. (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment) By creating a world of "positive," i.e., a world of affirmation, where the child's carnal nature rules, i.e., a world where children rule instead of a world of the "negative," where parents, i.e., the father/Father, i.e., doing right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth rules instead, children can do wrong,, disobey, sin without having a guilty conscience, i.e., can do wrong, disobey, sin with impunity, i.e., can be WOKED. 'Justifying' their "self," i.e., affirming their carnal nature before one another, they are therefore innocent of any wrong doing, disobedience, sin, making any who humble, deny, die to, control, discipline their "self" in order to do the father's/Father's will (insisting upon others doing the same) guilty of doing wrong, disobeying, sinning. "Make me 'feel good' and I will (like) listen to you." "Hurt my 'feelings' and I will, like, negate (unlike) you." The WOKE, being intoxicated with, addicted to, and possessed by "self," i.e., having negated the father's/Father's authority ("rule of law") in their thoughts and actions ("theory and practice") praxis "negation of negation," making everyone subject to their carnal nature, making "human nature" the law of the land. Being possessed with "self," i.e., being God, i.e., being WOKE they can not see it any other way.
"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)
With the "help" of psychologists, "group psychotherapists," facilitators of 'change,' Transformational Marxists (all being the same in praxis), students, through their "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," "positive," soviet, brainwashing, i.e., dialoguing opinions to a consensus classroom experiences, are 'liberating' their "self" from the father's/Father's authority, creating a "new" world order of WOKENESS ("self-actualization"), i.e., a world void of Godly restraint. Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud all had Kant's world of WOKENESS in mind.
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right')
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16
"Not feeling at home in the sinful world [where the father's/Father's authority, i.e., the father's/Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth make children "feel bad," i.e., feel guilty for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., for being "human"]. Critical Criticism [WOKERS, i.e., child of disobedience] must set up a sinful world in its own home." "Critical Criticism [WOKENESS] is a spiritualistic lord, pure spontaneity, actus purus, intolerant of any influence from without." (Karl Marx, The Holy Family)
"For the dialectical method the central problem is to change reality.… reality with its 'obedience to laws'." (György Lukács, History & Class Consciousness: What is Orthodox Marxism?)
WOKENESS is all about "preventing someone who KNOWS from filling the empty space," so they can be their "self," of and for the world only (loving pleasure and hating restraint) without having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning against the father's/Father's established commands, rules, facts, and truth. (Wilfred Bion, A Memoir of the Future) In the 'moment' of WOKENESS a person is "self-actualized," i.e., "of and for self" and the world only.
"Self-actualizing people have to a large extent transcended the values of their culture. They are not so much merely Americans as they are world citizens, members of the human species first and foremost." (Abraham Maslow, The Farther Reaches of Human Nature)
"Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to "self" in order to do God the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating God the Father and His authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks you from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 Those of dialectic 'reasoning,' as a child of disobedience ('justifying' their "self") can not see their hatred toward God the Father as being evil because their love of "self," i.e., their love of pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding them to the truth of the deceitfulness and wickedness of their heart.
While claiming the issues of life are about negating racism, climate 'change,' etc. (any social, environmental, etc., issue will do) WOKERS can not see their heart, i.e., the heart of man as being the issue. It is not a race or environment issue. It is a sin, i.e., heart issue. Having 'justified' their "self," i.e., 'justified' their love of pleasure, making pleasure, i.e., "peace and affirmation," i.e., "worldly peace and socialist harmony" the 'drive' as well as the 'purpose' of life they can not see their hatred toward restraint, i.e., their hated toward the father's/Father's' authority as being wicked, having found pleasure in hate as well. You can actual engender pleasure, i.e., dopamine in the brain through hate. This is why children become angry, i.e., hateful the 'moment' they can not get their way. If pleasure is the 'purpose' of life than whatever engenders pleasure, including hate, is 'justified.' Having 'justified' the lust of the flesh, i.e., their "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates, they can not comprehend their hate as being evil or wicked.
WOKENESS began in a garden in Eden, where the first (and master) facilitator of 'change' "helped" two "children" WOKE their "self," where through their use of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification' (Genesis 3:1-6) they 'liberated' their "self" from the "Father's authority" (Hebrews 12:5-11), negating their having a guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning in the process (Romans 7:14-25). Being WOKED, i.e., void of any need to admit they were wrong they were void of any need to repent. After all, with Adam throwing the woman "under the bus" and the woman the facilitator of change (when they were caught), they were the first 'liberal's.' 'Liberal's,' believing how they see the world—subject to their "feelings"—is 'reality,' i.e., refusing to admit they are wrong, i.e., blaming someone or something else or the situation for whatever went "badly" (for what they did wrong), see no need to repent. Being WOKE they can not even comprehend they did anything wrong, i.e., need to repent—it was someone else's fault (failure) for not being like them, i.e., WOKED.
"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' themselves, i.e., their love of "self" and the world, i.e., their love of the pleasures of the 'moment' over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., that they will not be held accountable for their carnal thoughts and actions]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates—including the affirmation, i.e., 'justification' of men]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
