Is it really just a silly product of bored academics, or is there a greater utilitarian purpose to the ideology that has permeated every aspect of Western society?

In the aftermath of the much-publicized failure of a conservative author to define “woke,” I took the moment to offer my own definition of the term via PJ Media, which reads as follows:

“Woke ideology asserts that the story of human history is best explained by an eternal struggle between the oppressor and the oppressed. Categories in this dichotomy are delineated along essentialist and immutable categories of identity, such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. People, irrespective of their individual life experiences, are assigned to oppressor or oppressed categories depending on an amalgamation of these characteristics, forming a hierarchy of victimhood.”

A gentleman by the name of Paul King, proprietor of Woke News Report subsequently contacted me to invite me onto his podcast to elaborate.

I was joined by two colleagues from PJ Media. An interesting and timely discussion ensued.
