From TikTok to Politics: Gen Z's Fight Against Wokeness | Jess Gill

Is Gen Z lost forever, or are they our new hope?

This week, Ed welcomes the remarkable Jess Gill, a 20-year-old student from King's College London. Jess dives into her experiences as a Gen Z conservative in the belly of the beast, tackling the challenges and debates surrounding wokeness, conservatism, and political correctness. From her journey into politics during the lockdown to her burgeoning TikTok following, Jess offers a fresh and insightful perspective on the current socio-political climate. They explore the complexities of growing up in a world where the younger generation feels detached from historical conflicts and security, and the ongoing debates around mental health, gender identity, and educational systems.

Jess and Ed discuss her school days, highlighting the contrast between her generation's experiences and those of the past. She reflects on her transition from a more libertarian viewpoint to a solid right-wing stance, driven by her desire to challenge mainstream narratives. The discussion touches on her work with Turning Point UK, her viral TikTok videos, and her encounters with various political ideologies. Jess's story is a testament to the power of independent thinking and the importance of speaking out in a world increasingly dominated by a single narrative.
