    11/ Next we have some photos. Photo 1: the man shot in the arm as a victim (emphasis on his wounds). Photo 2: that same man attacking Kyle with a gun (emphasis on him holding the gun). Photo 3 shows both the wounds and the gun.

    There's a lot of "numerology" revolving around any number (or any combination of numbers) - especially when you allow yourself to do things like arbitrarily inserting or removing digits (such as 0) in order to find whatever kind of "creepy stuff" you're looking for. But do something as simple as merely changing the number base from 10 to something else, and *POOF!!* - it all just goes away, like the mirage that it is ... (no doubt to be replaced with a whole new menagerie of chimeras by the intrepid "numerologist" ...)

    I was going to post about this a few days ago, but I forgot about it until this topic of Marxism vis-à-vis Social Justice "wokeness" came up. It's an article by the ICFI (International Committee of the Fourth International ) at their World Socialist Web Site: Factional warfare erupts in New York Times over the 1619 Project From the article: That's right ... socialists are defending Jefferson (or at least his statues) and American history against the "woke" crowd ...

    For more on the intricacies involved in the post-modernism/Critical Theory/Marxism/etc. aspects of Wokism, here's the content pointed to by the "differ somewhat" link from my previous post: Postmodernism Versus Critical Social Justice https://newdiscourses.com/2020/04/postmodernism-versus-critical-social-justice/ New Discourses (14 April 2020) Wait, what?! Postmodernism in its original form would be against Critical Social Justice?! You heard that right. It, like Marxism, would have been, and to the extent that it still gets forwarded, it is. To explore this seemingly bizarre fact, James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose join old-school postmodernist and libertarian thinker Thaddeus Russell on the Unregistered podcast. In this episode of the Unregistered podcast, these three thinkers take a very deep dive into the roots of Critical Social Justice and its Theory. This means diving deep into each of Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School, critical theories more broadly, postmodern Theory, and the more modern fusion of these, for the agenda of Social Justice through identity politics: Critical Social Justice.

    In my previous post, I misspoke when I said that Critical Theory is an "outgrowth" of post-modernism. "Woke" Social Justice theory is actually a fusion of Critical Theory and post-modernism, which developed more or less independently and were brought together in the 1980s & '90s ... In a sense, post-modernism was co-opted by neo-Marxists ... or, depending on how you look at it, neo-Marxism was co-opted by post-modernists ... (this dynamic is mentioned in the article below ...) Actually, post-modernism is a post-Marxist movement, rather than a neo-Marxist one. (It is "post" Marxist because the acid bath of deconstruction dissolves Marxism as thoroughly as it does capitalism - or any other such "meta-narrative.")

    I think the critical bit will be the part I bolded and underlined. This would definitely end up going to SCOTUS. ACB will have been seated by then - and assuming the same split as described in the OP, and that ACB sides with the guy who just elevated her, Trump wins. And the left then precedes to completely lose its shit, with actions and consequences only to be guessed at ... On the other hand, if one or both of those assumptions are wrong, and Biden gets POTUS, things will be less explosive, at least in the short term (the right just isn't nearly as hysterical or prone to "civic" chaos and violence as the left is). In the long run, though, a Biden win under these circumstances might end up providing more impetus to secessionism and separatist sentiments on the right than a Trump win would do, so that could be interesting. Pretty much the only thing I'm certain about is that, unless there's a clear (enough) winner, it's going to be a complete, utter and wretched mess ...

    That is an excellent analogy. A lot of people seem to think that Critical Theory (CT) and wokeness are inherently Marxist, or that they are some kind of new-fangled version of Marxism. But they aren't. Post-modernism (of which CT is an outgrowth) rejected Marxism just as sternly as it rejected capitalism. As @wokal_distance points out below (and which James Lindsay has also said elsewhere). the only thing CT takes from Marxism is Marxism's "theory of conflict." CT does not endorse any particular economic system, Marxist or otherwise. Critical Theorists may adopt the rhetoric or Marxism as and when it suits their purposes, but it is a big mistake to think that their end goal is the institution of "state socialism" or what-have-you. Their objective is to acquire as much money and institutional/social power as they can, by whatever means. As a result, Critical Theory is presently a much more fundamental and insidious threat than Marxism is even close to being.

    I think that's almost certainly what happens. And it's not like these rhetorical techniques haven't been used since humans first started talking (and maybe even before that). But the woke have distilled, concentrated and weaponized them - and then the rank-and-file left, being "woke adjacent" and having been exposed to this stuff via social media, have adopted them, too. Monkey see, monkey do ...

    13/ When "fighting racism" or doing some other work of wokeness, getting paid is encouraged. This is often done while claiming that capitalism is evil (by a woke definition). Here, Robin DiAngelo trashes capitalism while charging $20,000 per speech and $340 for a phone consultation. 14/ Getting clout is just as important as getting paid, as this allows you to preach wokeness.
