As the British columnist Giles Coren put. Woke Macht Frei.

Re: Jonathan Pie on "Woke Utopia"

I like the bit about in the name of inclusivity, categorising people into narrower and narrower segments, based on sexuality, gender identity and skin colour.

Re: Jonathan Pie on "Woke Utopia"

A certain amount of sympathy for his rant, but in the end it was pretty empty. So the labour party deals in self inflicted internal squabbles -thats being going on as long as I can remember.
Otherwise no cogent arguments - I thought that statues was a dead issue. Put new heads on the lot of them or provide tomatoes so we can deface the ones we do not like.
As for compartmentalising people -that unfortunately is what humans do.

Re: Jonathan Pie on "Woke Utopia"

I guess he thinks the world would actually be a better place if people didn't stand up against racism, etc.?

Should we all keep our mouths shut and pretend it doesn't exist? Should we condone and tolerate it with silence and just look the other way?

Apparently, his idea of a real utopia is for racist people to be allowed to be racist without having to be held accountable for their bullsh*t.
