Nah, let the Quebecois talk.
Je sais que la vue Québécoise est assez différente que celle anglophone. En fait, je suis même d'accord avec la première.

This oughta get the ball rolling:

The Unbearable Wokeness Of Being In Stratford

You can’t attend a performance anymore without first being hectored by a shopworn recording that acknowledges the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee and the Anishinaabe as the original stewards of the land on which the theatres are built. The Festival Theatre’s Executive Director has stated in the local newspaper that “land acknowledgements” are a traditional practise at Indigenous formal gatherings, justifying constant replication in the spirit of being “welcoming” and “inclusive.” Never mind that standard historical works concluded that the dense forests in this area were never occupied territories before Europeans cleared the trees and plowed the fields. There is no evidence they were even Indigenous hunting grounds.

More important, it is difficult to see how today’s remnants of the Huron-Wendat would feel welcomed by a recognition of Haudenosaunee presence in the territory, having been massacred and driven out of southwestern Ontario by them in the 1600s. Nor is it likely that the Haudenosaunee traditionally practised land acknowledgements in favour of the Huron-Wendat who preceded them. The Anishinaabe felt no need to consult with or acknowledge the claims of either people before signing treaties acknowledging British title to the land that was to become Perth County in the early 1800s.

By the way, some posters seem to want to insist that woketarianism is a "minor distraction," nothing more than arcane academic minutiae irrelevant to day-to-day life. That was probably true up until ten years ago, but not these days.

Just dropping in to acknowledge that AFAIK, I am the person who actually coined the term "woketarianism."

If somebody has seen this term used elsewhere before the last few weeks, let me know, and I will retract this assertion.

I like the term "woketarianism" because it reminds me of Presbyterianism, a protestant Christian church, founded in Scotland, renowned for it's strict ideology and lack of humour. Woketarianism reminds me of Presbyterianism in this regard.........

If you can find a way to get royalties paid to you for that, you should.

The Wokests are the Puritans of the 21st century.


(Cromwell was likely even worse than the most fanatic Puritan)

Agreed . Though I’m not sure I’ll be able to resist engaging.

"Woketarianism" may be the dumbest term I've ever come across, and if I heard it in person there would be a very un-woke response.

Anyone sensible though would have to admit that it's a bit absurd.

It's a textbook case of trying too hard to prove a "point".
