Book Review: Actively Unwoke by Dr. Karlyn Borysenko

Review by J.M. Troppello

The subtitle for this book: The Ultimate Guide for Fighting Back Against the Woke Insanity in Your Life is true. This book is an excellent guide to help you fight back against the woke ideology that has infiltrated our culture and institutions today.

I first heard about Dr. Borysenko when she wrote the viral article, “After Attending a Trump Rally, I realized Democrats are Not Ready for 2020.” I’ve been a long-time subscriber to Blaze TV. I learned more about Dr. Borysenko when she was on the Glenn Beck Radio Show to discuss her article.

I’m a Christian and a conservative, and am leaning more toward the Libertarian perspective each day. I wasn’t sure what to think about Dr. Borysenko at first. However, I started following her on Twitter after hearing her talk with Glenn Beck on Blaze TV. About 6 months ago, I started watching her YouTube videos daily. With my schedule, I’m not able to watch her shows live. But, I catch up on her show every night.

I have enjoyed hearing about her journey from a Democrat, ‘short-lived-barely-there Republican’, to a Libertarian. I do not agree with everything she believes. However, I truly respect her for always stating the truth, no matter where it leads her. As a conservative, I don’t always like the hard truths she says about us as a group. But, I do believe her when she says that she just wants conservatives to do better, be better, and actively take a stand against the woke agenda.

One important truth that I learned from watching her videos is that there are woke people on both the Left and the Right. Anyone coming from an authoritarian viewpoint is pushing their own type of woke agenda. That realization really resonated with me. It made me reevaluate who I am as a conservative.

She picked the perfect title for this book. It’s not enough just to be ‘unwoke’. You need to be actively unwoke if you want to make a difference in fighting back against the woke agenda. I love how she continues that theme with ‘actionable strategies’ that readers can implement in their own lives.

She also shares ways for self-care because embarking on this journey of fighting back against the woke can make you crazy. I’ve only dipped my toes into the water so far. My mind has been blown – in a bad way – with the woke videos Dr. Borysenko streams and discusses during her Happy Hours on Fridays.

My husband and I do not have any children yet, but we have 5 nieces and 8 nephews. I am very concerned about what they are learning in school. I’m so thankful Dr. Borysenko wrote this extremely important guide to fight against the woke. I enjoyed every part of this book. I highly recommend it to everyone who has complained about the woke agenda. Complaining without action never changes anything in a positive direction. You need to read this book and put her actionable strategies into place in your life. Change begins one person at a time.
