I consider wokeness to be "activist mysticism." I got the phrase from Eric Vogelin. He wrote that while the ersatz political religions of the modern world have borrowed Christian providentialism, they only ever offer “depictions of a desirable final state that are designed as negatives of some specific evil in the world.” For example, anti-racism is the only antidote to racism. The underlying body of theory to this position is bogus and yet the project proceeds on faith alone. Curious to know what you think.
