A truly virtuous person does not virtue-signal as a means of gaining social status & personal advantage, but we can't help knowing that being seen to be virtuous is advantageous.
To want to be virtuous is a good thing, but all too often, good intentions are misconceived & thus pave the way to hell.

This is what is happening in regard to anti-fascism & anti-racism, & the ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY they have given rise to.
The ideology of post-racial multiculturalism & DIVERSITY turns Nazi racial ideology on its head, going to opposite, but equally insane extremes, & serving Big Brother & his minions as the perfect means of virtue-signalling their moral authority over others.
This faux moral authority (i.e. moral supremacism) has been used to impose the madness of mass immigration & DIVERSITY on the West.

The reason it has gone unrecognised is because the academics we trust to recognise & understand such things are themselves minions of Big Brother.
It is not just academics who are minions of Big Brother. We ALL are, because of our dependency on him, i.e. on the state, which is what he symbolises.

However, academics are critical, because they are seen as authorities in whatever field they work in.
Social science academics are supposed to be authorities on understanding society & the state, but their own dependency on Big Brother blinds them to his presence & their own minionship.

The natural sciences had their Copernican Revolution.
The social sciences now need theirs.
#SocialScienceAcademia is rather like the medieval church, in urgent need of its own Reformation, or Darwinian Revolution.
George Orwell modelled Big Brother on 1930s fascism & communism, unable to imagine how he & his minions would embrace #LiberalDemocracy, anti-fascism & anti-racism.

This is what the social sciences need to recognise & quickly develop an understanding of
Such an understanding requires an evolutionary, i.e. sociobiological, perspective, & #EvolutionaryPsychology to understand the workings of the human - & academic! - subconscious, where our motivations & Orwellian doublethink have their source.

"Constantine supposedly had a dream of Christ promising victory if he took up the cross. Which he did. And he won!"
If Constantine had known anything of jesus's teachings he would called the battle off & sought to negotiate a peaceful settlement with his enemy.

But while on the subject of dreams, I recently had one that made a strong impression on me & which I will now relate.
I awoke from it last Tuesday morning, having spent the night at my sister's place:

Two cars in a chase coming towards me, one trying to overtake the other. As they passed one of them hit & slightly dented my car, a white Fiat Panda. They both pulled up a little further on.

"One aspect of wokeness which is overlooked is that it has no stopping point. There is no norm, value, idea, concept, standard, moral, or theory wokeness will not dissolve."
A society needs a shared moral authority. Otherwise it will just tear itself apart, which is what America & the West in general are currently doing.

The moral authority of the medieval church was imposed on society, which is what others are now also attempting to do.
The most pernicious of these alternatives is the Orwellian & moral-supremacist ideology of post-racial multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & AntiRacism, which has already come to dominate the West. Image

#DavidAaronovitch & the media outlets he works for, which includes #TheBBC & @thetimes, have an AGENDA, which they never talk about, at least, not publicly, & I'm pretty sure that if one broached the issue with any of them they would deny it.
Maybe they are not consciously aware of it themselves. I have no way of knowing. Most of what motivates us lies in the subconscious, which censors what it allows to become conscious.

This agenda is the ideology of post-racial multiculturalism, DIVERSITY, Inclusion & #AntiRacism.
It's an ideology that arose in misconceived, #NeverAgain, response to the evils of Nazi ideology of racial purity & supremacy, which it goes to the opposite but equally insane extremes of. It's a self-destructive ideology of White racial self-denial, self-contempt & self-hatred.

This is bizarre, & quite Orwellian that so little is made of it in the media, by politicians or academics, & not just in America, but everywhere in the West.

Why? because they are all terrified of being called RACIST, like the authorities in Telford & other English towns.
Anti-racist ideology has turned the West into an Orwellian nightmare.

If we don't get a grip on this soon, it will destroy our civilisation as surely as climate change will if we fail to get a grip on that too.

Both represent failure on the part of the social sciences.
It is imperative we understand how & why the social sciences are failing us, themselves & society at large, & offer the following two threads as starting points:

I usually agree with much of what #DavidAaronovitch says in his Briefing Room on BBC Radio 4, but not in his latest one on the UK's presumed need for "economic growth".

David is also keen on UK "population growth" through immigration, criticism of which he deems to be RACIST.
I share most of David's liberal views, but not those regarding economic & population growth, which I believe to be insane, i.e. genocidal.

I attempted to engage with him on these issues, but he simply dismissed me as a RACIST.
If I'm right about David's attitude to economic & population growth being genocidal, which I'm pretty sure I am, it is of no small consequence, because his views are pretty much those of Britain's & the West's ruling elites, in journalism, politics & academia.

Societies have always been dominated by their elites via a strategy of divide & rule, & although they pretend to be, Western "democracies" are no different. It is just more subtle than in earlier times & in non-democratic countries.

Allow me to explain HOW we're divided & ruled:
I think it was #WinstonChurchill who famously said that British democracy was deeply flawed, but better than any other system yet devised, or words to that effect.

I agree with him, but while he saw it as a reason for maintaining the status quo, I do not.
Churchill wanted to maintain the status quo because it served him personally extremely well, as it does many others.

However, the status quo is inherently unjust, inhuman & - most importantly - unsustainable on our finite, vulnerable & overpopulated planet, SpaceshipEarth.
