My money is on when the Dems took to the street to disavow the election result, having previously stood in stunned horror when they assumed the perfidious deplorables May do the same.

2016 brought thwarted feminist woke SJWism into partisan politics with a healthy dose of anti-white racism and liberal self hatred. Quite the combination.

I was going with the definition of acceleration. Which can happen at slow or fast speeds making it difficult to determine a starting point.

Probably 2016 is a little late though. Peoples impulse to be a 'moral scold' or a 'do-gooder' or to express righteous indignation goes back further than that. The degree and quality of current social discourse could be linked to the ubiquity of social media.

In which case it's a Melody Hensley world and we are all just PTSD victims living in it.

I can think of previous politically partisan elections but not woke inducing ones.

The car may have been gently accelerating for some time, but since 2016 the pedal has been stamped to the floor. Quite possibly powered by converging forces, but the counter neo-lib ground-swell and militant-lib factions seem quite new.

Politicians come in two flavours - partisan and spineless. While I'd prefer not having to taste either - if push comes to shove I'll go with the former.

If we define the concept of 'woke activism' or 'militant woke activism' as not to have existed before 2016 - then I'd be hard put to argue my case contra Last-Thursdayism...

...Fuck it. I'll still give it a shot.

The various tributaries to woke culture would be the activism associated with black, gay, womens and (more recently) trans groups. Probably others too - like the Jewish anti-discrimination groups - and that half-hearted attempt in the 1960s/1970s against anti-Italian stereotypes in America. They probably trace back to the 1960s - then 1930s and to 1920s and earlier for the Suffragettes. All at times could be classified as militant by any reasonable interpretation.

There you go - that's probably the extent of my knowledge - but if may serve as a rough guide in your search for the Amazonian source of wokeness or the golden El Wokado - before you light out for the territories.

I'll be doing something similar - though starting with Norton and 'Slow Chocolate Autopsy'.

I'd apologize for my boring pedantry (as opposed to the other sort) - but at this stage most would be more offended by the insincerity inherent in any such attempt.

It would probably be a mistake to look for a single magic bullet cause. Like most seemingly abrupt cultural changes, it was likely a confluence of factors in the loosely coupled dynamical soup that is culture which happened to superpose around 2015-2016. Factors I can think of include:

- A few years of cocooning and tribalization due to social media (especially Twitter, easily the most pernicious of the lot)
- The coming of age of the historically coddled and fragile Gen Z
- Mainstream media panic over their lack of influence as gatekeepers
- Financial incentivization of mainstream media to focus on niche audiences
- Increasing monoculture of the Academy
- The election of Trump, perhaps serving as a tipping point, radicalizing many on the mainstream and center left, and even some centrists and center-rightists.

I think intersection thinking is also part of it. It used to be Democrats vs. Republicans (in the USA), but now it is women vs. men, minorities vs. whites, trans vs. cis, millennials vs. boomers, etc. There are more tribes and the tribes are based on mostly unchangeable characteristics. And there is no attempt to persuade, just to blame. That is one problem with Greta's speech. It was not about coming together to try to solve a problem, it was about blame.

Yes, add authoritarian identitarianism to the tinder box and a particularly virulent strain of Manichean radical leftism emerged. One that had no interest in discussion, persuasion, and compromise, only provocation and vilification.

But the interesting question for me is what lead to the fertile environment for identity politics this decade, when the 1990's identity politics front couldn't make headway beyond the campus left and collapsed amid ridicule within a few years.

I think the big thing in the 1990s were campus speech codes. I remember reading a story in the local paper where a professor who was initially in favor of a proposed speech code listened to students speaking in favor of it and heard one student say the code was necessary because of words like "niggardly". At that point the professor realized that these people were nuts and was against it.

The difference now may be that the people pushing for the speech codes then are now professors or are out in the media and HR departments, so instead of the media looking on with bemused detachment at the craziness they are now cheerleaders for the craziness, and there are fewer professors willing to speak out against it.

I first noticed it during the 2008 Dem primaries, when obama rode a wave of pavlovian white guilt and dreamy-eyed youth certain they were on the cusp of the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Most journalists today are in their early twenties -- the veterans having been driven out -- so were in grade school when obama was first elected, then passed through the increasingly radicalized university system. Already trapped in an ideas bubble, their range of perspective is further narrowed by Twitter.

Trump's election was an existential shock to their and the rest of the far left's false assumption that almost everyone thought like them, and also their quasi-religious belief that their belief system was "on the right side of History" thus destined for victory. Everything since then has been just the petulant temper-tantrum of the spoiled brat who didn't get what they thought was coming to them, and who seeks to punish the one(s) responsible.

Cautionary financial tale for anyone interested:

Twenty years ago my mom bought a new car and must have opened a credit line at her bank to finance it. But, she never closed it and must not have paid the entire thing off, so maybe there was a few tens of dollars left in it. She also has a checking account there.

We only discovered the credit account because we went into the bank together to investigate her finances. So all this time she's been using the checking account, not knowing there was this little tumor of debt growing in this silent account. Guess what, it had grown to over $1000 and was accruing 20% interest. So next year it would be $1200 and next $1440, and so on.

We killed it with fire. Kids, don't let this happen to you.

Since only you seem to have called them Hitler , then you've answered your own question. Other people simply criticized the remarks. Not leaving a burning building is counter intuitive but there are often good reasons why people are advised to behave counter intuitively in an emergency (eg moving a person in an accident with a potentially broken neck) The delayed decision to abandon the "stay put policy " in a defective building (after about 2 hours) is another matter.
Unless because Hitler was "an authority figure" and some might have in his day described him as " a very cleaver person running the country"
that makes RM literally Hitler , from the word of his own idiot supporters.
Jacob is a leader, he’s an authority figure,” Mr. Bridgen said in a radio interview, describing why Mr. Rees-Mogg would have made it out of the Grenfell fire alive. “We want very clever people running the country, don’t we?”
Bridgen soon after apologized for comparing Ree Mogg to Hitler....or summat liek that...
https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/po ... ting-jacob



I'm definitely no fan of Corbyn - he's another idiot, but here's another "clever person running the country " who says Corbyn is actually Stalin:
Appearing on the Andrew Neil show on Wednesday night, the Business Minister struggled when the BBC interviewer brought up Boris Johnson’s comments comparing Jeremy Corbyn to Stalin on the grounds that he and his supporters hates wealth and aspiration so much that they ‘point their fingers at individuals with a relish and a vindictiveness not seen since Stalin persecuted the kulaks’.

When Neil suggested that this comparison didn’t hold up to scrutiny given that Stalin had people shot, Zahawi was unsure. Pressed on whether Corbyn really wants to have wealthy people shot, Zahawi replied:

‘I don’t know, you will have to ask him that question’

“I don’t know”

I should point out that Jacob Rees-Mogg was not called 'Hitler' . He was called 'Himmler'.

And Seamus Milne, one of Corbyn's top aides, is a literal Stalinist - although one who concedes that Stalin did make some mistakes.

Jacob Rees-Mogg is accused of being arrogant for saying it is common-sense to leave a burning building , by the same people who think the 2016 Referendum should be ignored because people didn't know what they were voting for, and the more educated people voted to Remain.

that makes RM literally Hitler , from the word of his own idiot supporters.
Jacob is a leader, he’s an authority figure,” Mr. Bridgen said in a radio interview, describing why Mr. Rees-Mogg would have made it out of the Grenfell fire alive. “We want very clever people running the country, don’t we?”
Bridgen soon after apologized for comparing Ree Mogg to Hitler....or summat liek that...

I'm definitely no fan of Corbyn - he's another idiot, but here's another "clever person running the country " who says Corbyn is actually Stalin:
Appearing on the Andrew Neil show on Wednesday night, the Business Minister struggled when the BBC interviewer brought up Boris Johnson’s comments comparing Jeremy Corbyn to Stalin on the grounds that he and his supporters hates wealth and aspiration so much that they ‘point their fingers at individuals with a relish and a vindictiveness not seen since Stalin persecuted the kulaks’.

When Neil suggested that this comparison didn’t hold up to scrutiny given that Stalin had people shot, Zahawi was unsure. Pressed on whether Corbyn really wants to have wealthy people shot, Zahawi replied:

‘I don’t know, you will have to ask him that question’

“I don’t know”
At the risk of being a bit IOKWWDI, at least Zahawi did say to ask the man himself rather than try to answer for him and declare him unfit to be heard. If only Corbyn were just an idiot. I'm afraid that he's a throwback to the days of Militant and union thuggery. The man never met an anti-Western despot he didn't like or a pro-Western democracy he did. He loves his bomb planting anti-imperialists, because look what we made the poor brown people do. The irony of it all, strangely seldom referred to, is that Jezza and his Trump hating cohorts are the real Putin sympathisers. I don't think I'm paranoid in suspecting that Corbyn in power would be a genuine security risk to the country.

So he's possibly a potential mass murderer by implication (ask him about that ) but thankfully he's not declaring him unfit to to be heard...
how jolly decent of him .... :roll:

Yes, a lot more decent than declaring someone to be a fascist or white supremacist, telling outright lies about them and then campaigning to have them thrown off of mass media so that they can't defend themselves, which is what Labour love to do to people like Tommy Robinson, Waters and Carl Benjamin. I didn't say it was a smart or particularly nice thing to say. Do you have a problem with that, or is only total condemnation allowed without any mitigation?

Aussieland was made to burn. Those Port Jackson willows and bluegums are like candles. They grow like weeds after a fire which is why they are taking over in South Africa. The local fynbos is relatively fire resistant, but grows more slowly and loses out to Port Jacksons. So we are not only losing indigenous vegetation, its being replaced by a fire hazard. A few years ago I was living just out of the city and we had a spate of fires. Port Jacksons lay down a carpet of thin, very flammable leaves, so airborne embers create lots of new outbreaks. Just when you think you've got everything under control, you'll see a new column of smoke coming out of the bush. Sometimes the fire would smoulder unseen under the top layer of leaves for hours before flaring up. I''ve raked back the leaves from the edge of a fire to find that it's crept many metres under the surface.

Secret Service releases report on mass school attacks. Conclusions:
• Most attackers had experienced psychological, behavioral, or developmental symptoms;

• half 
of the attackers had received one or more mental health services prior to their attack;

• All attackers experienced social stressors involving their relationships with peers and/or romantic partners;

• Nearly every attacker experienced negative home life factors ... includ[ing] parental divorce or separation, drug use or criminal charges among family members, or domestic abuse;

• Most attackers had a history of school disciplinary actions, and many had prior contact with law enforcement: 
Most attackers had a history of receiving school disciplinary actions resulting from a broad range of inappropriate behavior

• All attackers exhibited concerning behaviors ... rang[ing] from a constellation of lower-level concerns to objectively concerning or prohibited behaviors;

• Most of the attackers communicated a prior threat to their target or communicated their intentions to carry out an attack.
The answer, of course, is to ban 'assault weapons'.
... attackers used 18 handguns and 9 long guns during the attacks, with two attackers using multiple firearms. The remainder [16] used bladed weapons....

Yep. I'm currently in Lismore, NSW. The fires are miles away but the smoke is full on. And it's unlikely to change for days if not weeks.

Just finished watching Peter Jackson's They Shall Not Grow Old documentary. Very moving. 'Enjoy' is the wrong word, but it did hold your attention.

I am not sure I fully believe this woman. I think she knows more that she is saying. She is a TV producer and she has never heard of Project Veritas? Hmmmm. If feel sorry for her though. She was only on her new job for 4 days so she can be fired without cause. She probably wont even be able to sue for wrongful termination.

I saw it in the theaters, which included 30 minutes afterward of Jackson describing how the film was made. He mentions one clip of a group of soldiers in a sunken road. All of them had panic on their faces, especially the one in the forefront. They were about to go over and Jackson says the entire regt was wiped out. Had that one tommy's face in my head for days.

Seeing MIDWAY tomorrow with the GF. Critics' reviews tend to find it hokey and jingoistic, viewers' reviews love it. we shall see.

The 'teaser trailer', which feels like for a horror movie, kicks ass:
