He is right. The world is a mess and you can drive yourself crazy and go to crazy places trying to change that which cannot be changed. There is always room for improvement, but you have to be very conscious of the lines that should never be crossed. Great harm can also be inflicted with the the most noble intentions.

"Woke" culture has ruined so much of what I enjoy whether that be gaming, comics, movies, or just being a person. It is just RAMMED down your throat whether you like it or not and you're a horrible person if you don't agree with every one of their viewpoints. So great to see so many finally taking a stance against this nonsense. I completely agreed with Obama's statement.

I just love the irony. Its like "Be kind to everyone...if youre not you can burn in hell you piece of shit." 



Obama nails it, when he says that this isn't the way to bring change. I think this should be out guideline. Is my criticism making the world better? Then yeah, it is woke. But if not, if it only annoys people, spreads hate, antagonizes people, then this criticism isn't at all woke. Because it doesn't change the world for the better.

For clarification before I respond, how has "woke culture" ruined what you enjoy?

I feel like this is just a generic anti-PC point and not really in line with what Obama is saying, but I'd like to hear you out before rushing to judgement.

Pc culture has become like the Sith. "You're either with me, or you're my enemy"

Like seriously, that lady must be 90 and is heavily using a walking frame. Very embarrassing.



I don't know about "powerslams" *ha, but he had a reserved, fairly concise take on the subject. S'good!

A broken clock is right twice a day.

As a total aside what happened to the great orator that he used to be. That was the longest two minutes of my life; his tempo was so uninteresting and slow it took him two minutes to say what could be said in like 30 seconds or less.

He no longer has a professional team around him helping with how he presents himself overall, and he also has to be much more cautious of backlash. When he was Prez, he could get away with much more in terms of what he said or how he said it. Today, the right isn't silent anymore and will illuminate anything he says that they don't like or think is flat out wrong, but the woke left will also do the same if not worse, so he has to be much more careful about what he says. It's much tougher to sound so professional when you're put on the spot without a speech or prep, and he's also partially suffering from, 'if you don't use it, you lose it', since he's been out of the game for a while now.

Have to agree with what he said here, no matter how he presented it. It's the context that matters most by far.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

It's the new way to bully while still being smug and self-satisfied with yourself.

I watch the same thing unfold over and over, day after day--someone makes an accusation and instantly people jump on the bandwagon, attacking not only the accused but anyone who tries to be reasonable or withhold judgement until they have all the facts. Usually they ride a surge of upvotes and likes while patting themselves on the back for being "good people" while they do it. Of course, much of the time things change when all the facts do emerge, and the tide surges in the other direction. If this happened now and then, that would be one thing, but it happens constantly, which means a lot of people never learn.
