Are you ‘woke’?

Image result for sleeping kiwiIt’s a term I wouldn’t use but is used in my circles; ‘Woke’.

Fairly subjective term though because the value depends on what it is you’re ‘woke’ to. The Left or the Right or the Whatever will all compliment someone as being ‘woke’ who demonstrates that they have a comprehensive understanding and agreement toward the mindset referred to.

‘Woke’ doesn’t reach the heights of a Heinleinian ‘grock’ but it is always more comprehensive than simply voicing agreement. It’s attributed to a person who gives practical examples of really ‘getting it’.

eg An anarchist who doesn’t know who the Prime Minister is right now. He’s woke!
