The woke movement could be the next great U.S. cultural export — and it is going to do many other countries some real good https://t.co/3kvQYHm44v

We’re not sure why Bloomberg chose that photo — those two ladies must be woke.
Wokeism is an idea that can be adapted to virtually every country: Identify a major form of oppression in a given region or nation, argue that people should be more sensitive to it, add some rhetorical flourishes, purge some wrongdoers (and a few innocents) and voila — you have created another woke movement.
As the technology writer and lawyer Paul Skallas has written: “MeToo and BlackLivesMatter are essentially US culture issues which provide an effective identity for internationals of the progressive class.” Almost every other country now has its own version of woke, though it may differ greatly from the American version.
“Internationals of the progressive class” sounds like the first group we should ignore.
Did an insane person write this?
