Letter to the Editor: CRT, WOKE, AND CCS



Posted April 17, 2023


Dear Editor:


CRT and WOKE and CCS, oh my (repeat). Certainly reminds me of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz (1939) chanting, Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my (repeat)! Something you hope never to be confronted with but here we are in America stuck with three scourges. Good and bad events occur in sets of three many times past and present. It is encouraging to hear on the radio TDN Editorials and then read TDN citizen responses about these three culture and media revolts. 


CRT; Critical Race Theory erupted in the mid 1980s and has clearly become the most racist-revolt since the Civil War in 1860s. It is the ongoing division of our Nation primarily by protesting and demonstrating against “inequality” but then ultimately claiming “equity” as the major take-away of never ending demand for more and more of what normal people live and work for! It is a small stretch to link this scourge with BLM or Black Lives Matter (2012) as a byproduct. A major investigation of the CRT revolt is found with Subotnik,Daniel (1998) "What’s Wrong with Critical Race Theory: Reopening the Case for Middle Class Values,"  The internet link is https://scholarship.law.cornell.edu/cjlpp/vol7/iss3/1/


WOKE or WOKE-ISM;  has actually been brewing since the middle of the 20th Century. Practically it is transformational indoctrination, paradigm shift or outright brainwashing, intended to control people politically and professionally. Culture shocking may define it as well. Changing vocabulary and the meaning of usual terms is a definite sign of any such radical movement to impress people about a supposed superior way of thinking and behavior. Re-imagining is such a key buzzword and clue. A couple thorough articles below will help us through another senseless scourge;

2-Why Wokeism Is Not Marxist And Why It Matters, By Alexander Riley, April m2023

CCS; Carbon Capture & Sequestration (CCS) and Pipeline Projects from the Dakotas to Illinois, a genuine Green-Dreamer idea to save planet Earth from Climate Change! For people who believe their ancestors live in zoos and evolved from apes, then controlling weather and climate became a mandate. Thanks to Charles Darwin who published On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life in 1859, the naturalistic-bible was born. No more supernatural but onward with anything deemed natural. Projects to extract (suck) Carbon Dioxide CO2 from Ethanol factory chimneys, produce the toxic chemical slurry with CO2 for pumping it through pipeline 1300 miles to sites along the way and eventfully into mile deep wells in genuine Illinois private properties and croplands. Cap the CO2 wells and abracadabra save Earth from CO2 extinction. Remember CO2 already exists in our Atmosphere, Hydrosphere and Lithosphere normally! Two important resources below to realize and escape the CCS scourge from Illinois;

1-Coalition to Stop CO2 Pipelines Unsafe at ANY Price

2-Heartland Greenway (Navigator CO? proposed CCUS)

America can recover from these scourges through Citizens and Leaders who still believe in God and Country in that order. We must not abandon our inheritance from; “Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independance of the United States of America the Twelfth In witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names,” when thirty-nine of such leaders ratified the Constitution between the States! (US Constitution Article VII, Sept. 17, 1787)
