Putting a Cost on Wokeism

The cost of wokeism for Leftists is they must cheat to win. Whether in business, politics, sports, or whatever, if a Leftist is your competition, you can count on them to cheat.

If they can’t cheat, then they resort to totalitarian techniques to get compliance. And while many parts of the world bend to this force, there is always somebody willing to fight the power. America is that somebody. The American Conservative is that somebody.

We know that freedom comes at a price. And true Americans willingly pay this price. We studied historical figures in American history who centuries ago paid freedom forward. Conservative Americans honor these warriors and continue the fight to this day.

But the price of freedom while high, can’t compare to the cost of doing nothing. And what defines doing nothing? By my definition? Wokeism.

So what is the price of wokeism? I wrote of this recently in showcasing the woes of Facebook.

Facebook parent company Meta Platforms, Inc. forecasts a weak holiday quarter and significantly more costs next year wiping about $67 billion off Meta’s stock market value, adding to the more than half a trillion dollars in value already lost this year.

$622B loss in market cap in less than a year. And Zuckerberg will experience more woes soon. Because Facebook/Meta is not a government company.

The Fed can’t bail them out. Once the fed has used up Facebook, it will move on like all locusts eventually do. The Fed will need a new host.

Note that Facebook/Meta is not the only Big Tech firm facing economic problems:

Several technology companies, including Microsoft, Twitter and Snap have cut jobs and scaled back hiring in recent months as global economic growth slows due to higher interest rates, rising inflation and an energy crisis in Europe.

Facebook has had an impressive run, but the problem with these companies is that tastes are always changing, and the young are constantly moving to something else. Today it’s TikTok, but once the original users get into their 20s and 30s, they will likely drop it. Someday, the perception of TikTok among youth will be that it’s an app for old people.

Zuckerberg thinks it may take as long as 10 years for the Metaverse to truly blossom. The question is, does he have that long?

My prediction? Zuckerberg will be out at Facebook/Meta soon.

The demise of wokeism is not anecdotal. Without OPM [Other People’s Money], wokeism fails out of the gate.

Look at any city controlled by the woke and tell me what you see. Doom and gloom. Devastation. Give me your political problem, and I can show you that problem magnified by ten in any major Leftist-controlled city in America.

Next, look at another poster child for the woke, Jeff Bezos.

Bezos saved the Washington Post, then used the rag to target Donald Trump. Today, Bezos bleeds red ink in some of his more high-profile business ventures.

Add to this his personal woes. As we know, Bezos lost half his wealth in his divorce. Perhaps Bezos should have a beer summit with Trump and hope for better days.

The examples of woke woes are endless. How many other examples of wokeism failures can you name? Companies that shut their doors or move out of “woke”, ok BLACK neighborhoods?

Transgender men competing in women’s sports? The same ‘guys’ reading to children in kindergarten! Or how about a CEO so woke he jumped off a high rise?

Please show me where woke has worked. Don’t worry; I’ll wait.
