New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 36  

In Woke Marxism, "all" means "some." Not just any some, but a very specific some: the some that the Woke holds out as suffering from systemic oppression. You see, Woke Marxism maintains that society is contoured entirely by systemic power, and that creates an "unlevel playing field" that they have to "level" through redistribution schemes like equity and inclusion. When they say they want to devise an education system that benefits "all students," then, for example, what they're telling you is that because of systemic power dynamics, some kids don't benefit under the current system, and that needs to be remedied. Thus, the system will favor those students and disfavor others who are deemed relatively privileged. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay explains why you need to be on the lookout for specialized Woke uses of the word "all" and why it ultimately harms everyone.
