I always wondered, why are the woke so bureaucratic? They generate insane bureaucracy in every sphere of endeavor. What causes this?
I found an answer in Whittaker Chambers’ brilliant autobiography Witness. He calls the wokes ‘revolutionists’, and his explanation makes a lot of sense:
Chambers also shows that what today we know as “cancel culture” wasn’t “like the USSR.” It was one of the procedures imposed on the US left directly from the USSR. Even an insignificant little worker’s newspaper where Chambers worked was controlled directly from Moscow, and all the Soviet rules were mandated from there.

Bureaucracy creates many jobs for party loyalists. These positions also often allow for additional sources of income. Canceling people enforces discipline due to the value of these positions.
Liked this poem, though you will understand it much better:
И об истории
РУССКАЯ ИСТОРИЯ ДВАДЦАТОГО ВЕКА
Улица. Фонарь. Аптека.
Вата. Йод. Пенициллин.
Русь. Маца. Начало века.
Дело Бейлиса. Тфиллин.
Грязь. Безграмотность и серость.
Мази. Грелки… Порошки.
Царский гнет. Черта. Оседлость.
НЭП. Угар. Раздача польт.
Волны красного террора.
