I’m beginning to think H.L. Mencken’s famous apothegm—“When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money”—would make a good Eleventh Commandment or at least something to bear in mind on almost any occasion.
“Wokeness”—no matter what “justice” veneer you put on it—is about the money.
It’s about taking the money from those who have more and giving it to those who have less—or supposedly have less. Sometimes that’s not as clear as it should be.
The lever for extracting other’s money these days—in case you just flew in from Alpha Centauri—is race.
We’re all supposed to be racists from birth, especially white people who have, in many instances, although far from all, more money.
