Is Harvard Sacrificing Science for Wokeness?

 When a wound goes really septic and gangrene sets in, it begins a slow progression from the affected tissue into healthy tissue.  The infected finger becomes the infected hand which becomes the infected arm, and eventually the patient will die of it.  The classic and still sometimes used remedy for gangrene is amputation of the affected body member.  The normal description of gangrene is the body part deteriorating from lack of oxygen to the tissues.

When a society has a not only a lack of commitment to good principles but beyond that a rejection of those principles in favor of really counterproductive ideas, that's analogous to the body's tissues not getting the oxygen they need.  And rot sets in.
Full blown 'wokeness' is that rejection of good principles in favor of bad ideas, and like gangrene causes rot in flesh, it causes intellectual rot in parts of the society.  When that rot starts to spread it becomes more and more prevalent and more and more dangerous to the society.  And that's exactly what's going on with 'wokeness', as we see it soaking through so much of academia, business communities, social movements, and now even our military.
It has to be stopped, and soon, before it does even more damage than we've had already, in fact it needs to be turned back, rejected emphatically across society.  We all should be writing and calling all our representatives, local, state, federal, to protest as strongly as possible about this.
