This epiphany struck me yesterday while I was at work letting my mind wander, thinking about the Cult of the Left and how to fight it. Obviously the idea isn't an original one, it's all throughout Dave's book, and has been preached by JBP and others. This is just my attempt to summarize it the best way I can.
"When you choose to embrace your own role in your own life, and how you make your choices and how those affect you, either positively or negatively, and stop blaming others for how they might be creating outcomes for you, THAT is empowerment. That is the true meaning of 'Being Woke.'"
