Everything will become woke in the shortterm.

in response to reader comment: Jewish National Fund

Dear Dr. Pipes, Reader H Feldman surmised that Jewish National Fund has gone woke. I am not surprised. Woke is a new term but the phenomenon itself is not new. The woke thought results from finding easy explanations of things without thinking deeply. And, when religion, parents, nation, and tradition are all discredited one after another, easy explanations from leftist think tanks (politicians, media, and academics) gain currency. That is what we call woke today.
