BY JAMES BEMBRIDGE Titling her book on the assumption that it has, Joanna Williams delivers a powerful critique against this cultural cancer which has now metastasised itself into every aspect of our lives. It may seem absurd to afford a tabloid buzzword like Woke with any degree of intellectual seriousness, but Williams’ arguments – peppered with persuasive evidence and delivered in a scholarly and detached … Continue reading Has Woke Won?
BY JOHN NASH Dear CSM Reader, There was a brief flurry of snowflakes earlier in January, when Adam Hart appeared on BBC Countrybile, the Beeb’s fluffy programme for neurodivergent urban armchair-farmers. Apparently, Mr Hart did a relevant piece about a very real problem – the rising tide of wild deer in the UK. As erudite and intelligent readers of CSM understand perfectly well, deer are horny … Continue reading Land of Woke and Tory
BY EFFIE DEANS I don’t think I have read a word by J.K Rowling. When the Harry Potter books became wildly popular, I abstained. Perhaps that was a mistake. Lots of other people have enjoyed them, maybe I would have too. I rather like classic children’s fiction. But somehow the prospect of reading about child wizards going to school did not appeal. My loss. So … Continue reading Truth Sets You Free
BY KEER LONSDALE Here’s a fact for you. It is impossible to win a debate against a woke person. Not, of course, because they have the better arguments: woke people believe stuff that is indefensible tosh, all sane people know that. No, you won’t win because the woke person will immediately question your ethical motives and, from that point on, you won’t have a leg … Continue reading We Can’t Win Without a Name
BY ANDREW MOODY When researching Stephen Pax Leonard, the author of the 2018 Conservative polemic The Ideology of Failure: How Europe Bought Into Ideas That Will Weaken and Divide It, I couldn’t find any reviews of the book. In my search however, I found articles from 2018 about Leonard’s unpaid Research position at Durham university being cancelled after he allegedly posted Antisemitic and Islamophobic tweets, … Continue reading The Ideology of Failure
BY ANDREW MOODY I may be a simple Kensington girl with a modest trust fund and a thirst for justice, but it is my destiny to guide your generation to a new world order. I’m like a younger, hotter, female version of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, and you are my rats. So writes everyone’s favourite ecosexual, socialist, trans-disabled, intersectional feminist, Titania McGrath, who returns … Continue reading #StayWoke
THE CITY GRUMP There is a huge hullaballoo over how to award exam grades to our school children since the government decreed they aren’t allowed to actually sit exams in 2020. Understandably nobody likes uncertainty but let’s take a moment to examine the worth of the education system that so many are getting worked up about. Firstly there is an argument to be made that … Continue reading Facts Not Wokery
BY ANDREW MOODY The left, or rather the anti-democrats, are losing, and come Halloween and Britain’s exit from the EU, they will have lost. Meanwhile, thanks be to God for Titania McGrath (AKA satirist Andrew Doyle) and her magnificent polemic WOKE, which turns the tables on the MSM culture of outrage with all its immaturity and illogicality. Titania, an upper middle class social justice warrior … Continue reading Woke
