The Woke are a culture of conformity, but they’re not the only one. Another very important culture of conformity exists that is, in fact, integral to the Woke movement and its success: the Very Smart People with their respectability politics! In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only short-form podcast, I dive into the cultural phenomenon of Very Smart People as a kind of clique of intellectuals that is vigorously gatekept and how the problem of Very Smart People maintains and allows for the more severe problem of the Woke, which mostly parasitizes them. You won’t want to miss this, so grab a drink and your headphones and let’s dive in!
