    If you look for it, you will find it...

    On the serious side though, I suspect that the polar opposite of "wokeness" wouldn't be your cup of tea either. There's a nice big middle ground in any set of supposed fundamental choices.

    As someone smackbam in between what is now seen as the old generation & new generation, I feel I have a good experience to comment on this woke crap.

    The woke crap comes directly out of the generation of kids who never learnt what it meant to be wrong, or come last. Before I continue, I'm not pointing fingers at the parents on this forum that have kids in this "group". On the contrary SA got off light for the most part. I'm talking about 1st world countries where kids currently between 18 and 25 now have a delusional sense of entitled and believe the world owes them something. They were also raised that they are the best and are always right. Mom & dad gave them everything they want because they promised not to be the hard parents theirs were.

    The participation trophy generation I like to call it. There weren't taught what it means to shut up & accept no means no. They were raised to "stand your ground & your believes" with being taught to understand what that actually means.

    I sell internet connectivity for a living, and even I hate it for what it has become. These kids are so impressionable, so the handful of idiots shouting the loudest gets their attention.

    Maybe "Woke" means they only woke up but didn't get out of bed! I have one in my home, spends more time in bed than anything else and when her mother reprimands her we get the "Snowflake" attitude.

    It is what it is. Dis vandat kinders nie meer ge###### word nie. Hope you enjoy sleeping in the bed you made parents.

    Also social media is raising kids now days. They get their first smartphone/tablet at age 3 and gets raised by the thing. Lying in bed all day or on the couch. This is an easy way for parents to raise their kids. Kids now days have it too easy.

    Is woke just a different term for things we do not agree with.

    It originated in the 60’s in America as slang for being sensitive to racial injustice.

    Now it has become a catch-all phrase. Which is irritating, as it promotes lazy thinking.

    Its like people conflating Trumpism with Conservatism and I feel the same has happened with Wokeness and Liberalism.

    So I dont quite get it. Not assigning a gender to a child at birth is not wokeness, its monumental stupidity.

    Our generation is to blame for the weak men.

    Not entirely, altought I heard stories of the great depression from my gran, can I not fully comprehend what it took to survive (getting an idea now though).

    My view is that with each new generation times change and so should parenting to equip the kids for the challenges of their generation. The saying you cannot bring your kids up the way you were brought up because that world does not exist anymore, holds true here.
    I could play cricket in the streets with my friends, my son could not due to a lot of reasons. I could not see a beheading by isis on youtube as it did not exist but I had to warn my son of not inadvertently looking at it and have to deal with all the emotions that comes from seeing someone beheaded, in the middle ages that was the norm.
    Saying boys of a 120 years ago partook in the boer war from as young as 12 made them stronger than boys of today at 12 is moot. As war at 12 is not ideal for any child.
    120 years ago thought no child had to be warned against drug pushers trying to get to them at primary school.
    I do not agree with the over sensitivity on frikken everything of today's world either, but that came of world influence and peer interactions and not necessarily due to upbringing.
    Hell I remember the old folks shaking their heads at how easy we had it when we were growing up, now we reckon we're the strong generation....
    We had to beware of bombs in our shopping centers, our kids had to beware of being robbed in broad daylight at knife point of their bikes, or deal with home invasions.
    Even Aristotle had an issue with the youth in the "tough" old days.

    It was originally a mp4 video, which the forum won't load.
    I converted it to m4a format, but the video seems to be gone, only the audio remained.
    Listen to the audio and imagine the beautiful lady in the video (she actually is).

    Edit:
    I added the zip file contaniing the original mp4 file
