So, is the PC Madness/SJWs-Run-Wild phenomenon proof that the so-called Powers-That-Be are not really in control? Especially as it has infected corporate boards, elite universities, private schools, the AMA, and the upper echelons of the government and military - all the presumed bastions of the Ruling Class.
Or, if the "Illuminati" (or whatever they call themselves) are behind it, what is their end game? I don't get it.
I've thought about this a bit, and I've come up with an idea. It may not apply to everything, and I'm not yet certain about it, but here it is.
Maybe with respect to language and appearances, PC speech, gender preference in addressing people, Critical Race Theory dogma, etc. are a type of IQ test for the elite
. The idea is that if you are truly worthy to belong to the ruling class, you will be competent at giving the appearance of having sympathy
with certain attitudes and values, while inwardly not giving a damn (or even being opposed)
. By contrast, those who become infuriated by the SJW language-games are exhibiting insufficient mastery of their emotions
This could apply to many arenas of power, and even to private school elite trainees. The best and brightest will be able to figure out how to "talk the talk." As for the medical profession, the sharpest doctors will know when to go along with medical fads, and when to reject them, but without appearing to have any skin in the game. Similarly, on a corporate board, one worthy of privilege will know how to promote their preferred goals without giving the appearance of either prejudice or insincerity. - A plausible sounding justification can be found for almost any specific conclusion.
As for the masses, they will operate under the delusion that they themselves are calling the shots.
[I study a lot of history and have learned that at many times and places, the privileged classes knew languages (French in Medieval England, Latin throughout Europe, Sanskrit in India, etc.) and had language skills (literacy and rhetoric) that the majority of the population didn't.]
As an addendum to the above
, in any position where a genuinely competent person needs to be calling the shots, it will still be possible to present a figurehead
to the public who externally checks the right boxes.
What do you think?
