Occam's Razor vs Wokkam's Razor

On LoTRs/Rings of Power etc

Occam’s Razor: The reason people are pissed with changing source material is because they are pissed with people changing the source material.

Wokkam’s Razor: Racism and sexism, it’s because racism and sexism.

Keep it going.

You’re saying it’s self-evidently true?

I’m saying it’s often simpler and more correct to assume the reason say X is because they think X. But in the realm of “wokism” that’s replaced by a different kind of simplicity: Isms.

I just thought it was interesting how close it was to a kind of (bad) razor.
