Recently, I read with great interest James Lindsay's essay called "The Woke Breaking Point." There, he invites his readers to ask friends and acquaintances "What would it take for you to say that the Woke movement has gone too far?" This, he suggests, is a way to help people keep themselves honest: if you consider in advance what state of affairs, specifically, would be "too far," then you will be able to recognize better the excesses of the totalitarian Left and more ready to resist them at the point when it becomes absolutely necessary.

Reframing the question, he writes: "Ask. When is enough, enough?"...

If you have had "enough," I'm asking that you do something. Ask yourself: given my own gifts and my own limitations, how can I contribute? For all of us, this will require some sacrifice. This means you also have to consider what, specifically, you are willing and able to sacrifice. But if you're unwilling to sacrifice anything -- if you're unwilling to respond in any way other than casting a ballot -- then it doesn't matter what you say: you haven't had enough.
