"Those politics are obscure, they are confusing, they are socially and culturally extreme, they are expressed in a bizarre vocabulary, they are deeply alienating to many, and they are very unpopular by any definition. The vast majority of the country is not woke, including the vast majority of women and people of color. How could it possibly be healthy for the entire media industry to be captured by any single niche political movement, let alone one that nobody likes?"
The views of the woke are not as obscure, nor socially and culturally extreme as people would like to think. They are a byproduct of the enlightenment and scientific revolution that Nietzsche could see in the mid 19th century. He clearly diagnoses the disease if not the cure.
Beginning with Copernicus the Western world increasingly saw reality as mechanistic. Intellectually perhaps Newton was the ultimate expression of the trend and perhaps why he spent his last years in a religious delusion. Mechanistic determinism took a step back with relativity and another with quantum mechanics but it remains the dominant cultural paradigm. The only place that paradigm could lead is to the rejection of individual responsibility. We have not found our Übermensch to create new values within the moral vacuum of nihilism but wokeness has filled the gap. Instead of the Ubermensch we got a new secular religion.
