The Coming Woke Catastrophe: A Critical Examination of Woke Culture

Author:

Credentials: 

Chris Heitzman has been a lawyer in private practice for the past 15 years and a keen observer of social and political affairs.

Widespread popular belief holds that woke culture, increasingly known as “wokeism,” is the great progressive awakening of our time. Its followers and proponents believe that their awakening is one of seeing a better world without discrimination, unfairness, or injustice. Those who refuse to subscribe to woke culture are seen as hateful people who must advocate the opposite of what woke culture claims to stand for. Increasingly anyone who questions the woke message is shouted down, de-platformed, and even cancelled. But is there something less attractive about woke thinking beneath the labels? Few examinations of woke culture have yet appeared, and Chris Heitzman’s new book is timely. This book examines what woke culture is, and analyses whether it aligns with its own superficially attractive ideals or whether it is a sinister attempt at mind control that is doomed to fail. The Coming Woke Catastrophe explains why Heitzman is not woke, and why you should not be, either.
