Rules for thee but not for me. That's the mantra underlying America's new woke belief system. Joining us today is freelance writer and author Larry Eubank (larryeubank.com) to discuss his new article Wokeism: The New American Orthodoxy. He looks at how the laws and rules when applied to radical leftists are ignored, because for them, the woke orthodoxy trumps everything – including the rule of law. But conservatives are expected to live up to those same laws. For every double standard on the surface, there's an undeclared single standard underneath. And that's the orthodoxy.
There is so much flipping and flopping on issues today, it's enough to make a person dizzy. In this week's boralogue, John looks at postmodernist history and why they don't seem to mind changing course on an issue. To them, reality is based on feelings and perceptions, which means words and laws and rules don't have concrete meaning. There are no moral standards, but sooner or later reality becomes real and people will need to think clearly. Today's youth haven't been taught how to do that, so many are lashing out, causing chaos around the country and inconsistently asserting their opinion on important issues.
