Lewis and Clark College [in Portland, Oregon] will host a series of “WOKEshops” during the fall semester to teach students about “different forms of oppression and privilege.”
According to an advertisement for the new series, the so-called “WOKEshops” (derived from the popular social justice slang term “woke”) are designed to help participants “engage in critical reflection, dialogue with people from different backgrounds, explore various identities, and understand systemic privilege and oppression.” …
One “WOKEshop” called “The Power of Language,” for instance, will teach students “about inclusive language and the power of words” while offering strategies “for speaking up against hurtful language.”
For more on the power of language, reread the part of 1984 that discusses limiting thought by limiting vocabulary.
In a “Self Care for Social Justice Advocates” workshop, meanwhile, students are encouraged to attend if they “feel like the more ‘woke’ [they] become, the more stressed [they] are,” exploring “the ways that social advocacy adds to [their] stress and how to more fully integrate ‘rest.’”

Stress among pampered college snowflakes who extent childhood into their 20s is considered a serious issue.
Another “WOKEshop,” titled “Oppression, Privilege, and Microaggressions,” asks students who have “experienced or witnessed a form of oppression” to come learn “how they show up in our lives.”
It doesn’t say crying towels are provided, so be sure to bring your own, in case the microaggression sob stories tug on your heartstrings.
The future does not have anything pleasant in store for the generation of sniveling, self-pitying, self-hating fools liberal social engineers have been cultivating.
