James Lindsay hat eine interessante Idee, wie man „woke“ Leute zum Nachdenken bringen könnte:
Talking with a brilliant friend last night keyed me into an important idea: everybody has a Woke breaking point, a point where they can’t deny any longer the fact that it’s a totalitarian nightmare. Encourage your sympathetic friends to start naming what theirs would be.
Whose statue has to come down? Seriously, whose is the last straw? Who has to get cancelled? Fired? Doxxed? Destroyed? Beaten up? Killed? Does it take a lynching? Does it take destroying the thing YOU love? Your family? Your kids? Your job? Your hobby? What is it? What’s too far?
You will have a hard time talking your friends out of Wokeness in the midst of a Woke moral panic. It’s damn near impossible even when there’s no so much going on and so much at stake for speaking wrongly. But get them to identify a breaking point. Make sure they have one.
And if they don’t, force the hard question. Ask them straight: if *nothing* would convince you this is an unfolding nightmare, what does that mean? What are you doing? What is it doing for you where nothing could convince you it has gone too far? Put the questions to them.
They don’t have to change their minds. They don’t have to believe it’s happening, likely, or even possible. They should be able to find a breaking point and name it, though, and if not, they need to be pressed on that point. That’s serious.
Don’t expect it to go well. Don’t expect them to come around. Don’t push past the hard question, either. Don’t force it. Just leave them. The question will bother them basically forever if they refuse to play, and let it. Let it do its work.
Keine Ahnung ob es eine gute Idee ist, aber ich finde es dennoch einen interessanten Ansatz.
Es wäre auch interessant, wer wie viel mitträgt. Was wären denn gute Punkte, die man ihnen vorhalten könnte?
