In a splendid speech, Russian British comedian Konstantin Kisin at the Oxford Union – see youtube – discusses how ‘woke culture’ and climate activism have ‘gone too far’ and brainwashed young minds so they now only complain instead of putting in the effort to solve the problem – snippets follow – it’s well worth a watch
I’m tired of talking about woke culture
Free speech is not some right-week re-framing of whatever — it’s the foundation of Western civilisation
We know that the way to improve the world is to work, is to create, is to build, and the problem with woke culture is that it has trained too many young minds like yours to forget about that
Now, what are we to do about climate change – this huge issue facing humanity?
What can we in Britain do?
We can only do one thing – you know why?
This country is responsible for 2% of global carbon emissions, which means that if Britain was to sink into the sea right now, it would make absolutely no difference to the issue of climate change
The future of the global climate will be decided in Asia and Latin America, by poor people who couldn’t give a s–t about saving the planet
Because they’re poor
For example, there’s 120 million people in China suffering from malnutrition
‘Woke culture’ has trained so many young minds to forget how to solve issues
The current generation is convinced the only way they can solve an issue is to “complain” instead of actually working on it
There is only one thing we can do in this country to stop climate change and that is to make scientific and technological breakthroughs that will create the clean energy that is not only clean but also cheap
The only thing wokeness has to offer in exchange is to brainwash bright young minds like you to believe that you are victims, to believe that you have no agency, to believe that what you must do to improve the world is to complain, is to protest, is to throw soup on paintings
