Woke Equality - Word Control equals Mind Control
How the liberal left is using Woke Equality to impose Word Control knowing that those who control your words, control your mind.
For the past couple of years, it has been reported in some horrifying detail on how the woke left has completely transformed the city of San Francisco from one of this country's most beautiful cities into one of the scariest besieged by crime, homelessness and drug addiction. That is not an exaggeration. There are now more drug addicts in San Francisco than there are high school students.
And if you haven’t visited San Francisco in a decade or so you may be surprised to learn that the city has become threatening and dangerous. So much so that the rate of property crime in San Francisco is the highest of any big city in America. More than five-dozen cars are smashed and robbed every single day of the year. It’s very depressing.
But don't worry; the city's leaders have a plan to respond to this. And of course, it's not more policeman or stricter enforcement of the laws. That would be using too much common sense. Instead, the city of San Francisco’s leaders see that as bigoted and have decided to solve the problem by banning words that imply San Francisco has a crime problem. If people aren't allowed to talk about crime, maybe they won't notice crime exists. That's the government’s woke logic anyway. How can there be a problem if you can’t adequately describe it?
So recently, the city's Board of Supervisors decreed that there'll be no more "convicted felons" in San Francisco. Going forward, ex-cons are to be called, "justice-involved individuals." Well, as it happens, the people they committed crimes against are also called "justice-involved individuals."
So, in other words, victim and criminal are now morally indistinguishable. That's on purpose. This is woke equality. If there are no criminals and no victims – one is not morally superior to the other.
It also means that there are no crimes, but therein lies a problem. Crime nevertheless continues to rise in the city.
Meanwhile, the city of San Francisco, continues the woke quest for equality - there are no longer any "juvenile delinquents." The whole category has disappeared. Criminals under 18 are now referred to as "young people impacted by the juvenile justice system" -- as if the system, and not the kid, committed the crime and is at fault, which is what the left in fact believes. It's your fault, not theirs. Check your privilege, Middle America.
Drug addicts, meanwhile, in San Francisco are now called "people with the history of substance use." "Use," not "abuse." Get it? Heroin addicts are now the same as insulin-dependent diabetics; both use "chemical substances." You can't call one better than the other. They're both exactly the same.
Now, you could laugh this off. San Francisco, after all, is where all the crazy things happen but it is also the forefront of cultural and legal changes for the rest of the nation historically. But language makes thought possible. When the words disappear, so does our ability to think, describe and debate about the ideas the words represent.
When they prevent you from saying the obvious, over time, it becomes impossible to see the obvious. And that's exactly of course, why they do it.
In San Fran the political majority’s woke agenda has gone off the rails and is disregarding and disenfranchising the honest, hardworking, taxpayers who pay the salaries of these elected officials. It was Marcus Aurelius, that said “The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” – but in this case it would seem that the major
