    Marxists of a hundred years ago divided the working class from their bosses by interjecting a "class consciousness" state of mind of the working class so as to start a revolution leading to the overthrow of their bosses.

    While Marxists of old divided people by economic status, today's 'woke' leftists divide people by fixed identity traits, such as race, gender, and sexuality. Woke today is referred to as achieving racial consciousness.

    This 'woke' view being defined by power verse the oppressed isn't just being taught by Critical race Theory, no, it is also being taught by Critical Legal Theory, Critical Pedagogy (teaching), Critical Social Justice, Critical Sociology, and even Critical Math and Science.

    Major corporations such as Disney and Coca-Cola are mandating their employees take racial sensitivity training based on CRT where they learn that white people are inherently racist.

    Public schools teach that students producing correct answers in Math is a manifestation of white supremacy. What length won't these radical wokesters go to in spreading their divisive racist tactics?

    The American Medical Association announced a plan to "embed racial justice" when rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine. They used priority tiers, including racial preferences when administering the jab.

    A senior Army officer in the Space Force was recently fired for speaking out against CRT being taught in the military.

    Postmodern (wokeism) is a rejection of the Enlightenment principles that inspired the American revolution, our system of government, classical liberalism, and the spread of freedom and free markets throughout the globe. Critical Theory is malware for a society built upon the tenets of the Enlightenment.

    Cancel Culture of our Free Speech is just another Woke dividing freedom-killing tool found in the Wokesters' Marxist Utopian agenda basket. Too many examples of the censoring of our free speech rights to list here for now.

    Today’s democrat secular progressive left is all about dividing us in every which way. National unity is anathema to them

    It appears to me that the OP is an effort to further divide us by pointing out things others are doing that "outrages" us. I would like to try and change the focus and see if we can recognize things we may have in common:
    Most conservatives and most liberals really care about the future of this country.

    But Biden has governed opposite of his national unity campaign promise. Every thing he’s said and done has been to promote progressive left agenda items and to denigrate conservatives and red states.

    Most conservatives think the likes of Pelosi and Schumer and Biden are leading us into the empty abyss. For us the midterm elections can't come soon enough. House Speaker McCarthy meet Senate majority leader McConnell.

    "You're either with us, or against us."
    "If we don't like your views, we will prevent what you're saying from even being brought to the discussion table."
    "Facts are too dangerous for people to be trusted with. They might use those facts to come to a wrong conclusion."

    Should we mention the manipulation of the black vote? It's been a continual strategy.
    How about the ridiculous alliance of convenience with the Muslim bloc? (mostly turning a blind eye to things they used to complain about to no end with Christians)
    It's all so fake.

    They're experts at manufacturing public opinion to fit what is currently politically convenient at the time.

    People, yes. Not necessarily the leaders.
    A lot of it is all about power. They think if they can only cement their power, they can usher in a utopia and all the problems will be solved.

    I mean the Marxists weren't the ones to point out class conflict first. Those problems were going back to the guild system with masters refusing to pay their apprentices and journeymen more. If anything the OP is trying to divide people further by turning this into an 'us vs them' situation, when it's not.

    So none of the people here who criticize the left for not wanting unity are willing to take a step toward healing the divide?

    How about this perhaps we should try to stop the name calling and only discuss issues, statements, and values?

    Okay, perhaps you could start the healing by campaigning against Critical Race Theory, Critical Legal authority, Critical Pedagogy, Critical Social Justice, Critical Sociology, Critical Math and Science, Cancel Culture, and every negative aspect of the WOKE agenda. Let me know how you're doing with that mission, and I'll always be here to lend a helping hand if needed. Most of the American values are indeed being compromised and are indeed encompassed inside all of those aforementioned issues.

    I asked that people stop calling others names and we address issues etc. when we talk. You reply that in order for you to be involved others need to agree with you. Isn't that exactly what you feel the "left" is doing to you?

    Why would a master pay the journeyman or The apprentice more?

    Do you think a journeyman or an apprentice deserves an equal amount of pay with the master Craftsman?

    No they do not you pay your dues financially and through experience

    Both parties divide the nation, both parties suck and are responsible for the state of existence we have today.

    Why do you fear CRT that much? CRT has nothing to do with Marxist ideology since Marx was a racist like many folks in the world are....

    Those who scream the loudest about an issue, do so, so they can hide the fact they are the one's actually doing the issue they yell about.
    The Capitol was breached in 2021 by those thugs who really wish to divide American. And the voices who support the destruction of American democracy.

    Keep screaming trump people. You show your true colors each time.

    That was the complaint. The masters were purposefully saying their charges weren't producing things of sufficient quality when they were. Because the masters determined if a product was of master quality. So what was the easiest way to get a bunch of master level goods but don't have to pay the price for them? Easy, keep the work force down.

    Yeah that sounds good but here's the reality.

    If their apprentices were producing goods equal to the master why would they not go and open their own business?

    Because of the guild system.You weren't allowed to. Where would you get the money to go into business from? Not having a guild's backing hurts the chance of getting a loan. To say nothing of the political ramifications.

    How did the Masters end up Masters? Clearly they didn't start as Landed Gentry, since they were lowly trades.
