For my academic essay title, I wish to use the term "Hypervigilance".
The context I'm using it is "an Era of Hypervigilance".
By "an Era of Hypervigilance", I want to describe the present period in time where people are keen to be social justice warriors— i.e. jump at any perceived societal evil and use any means possible to demonstrate the fact that they are "woke" (sometimes without knowing if perceived facts are truthful).
A few (two or three) sites on the internet do indeed refer to hypervigilance in this sense (that I intend). However, the term primary seems to describe a medical condition where being "hypervigilant" means being in "an enhanced state of sensory sensitivity".
My question specifically is this— would you understand the word "hypervigilance" if used in the context that I intend to.
If not, please can you suggest any suitable alternatives?
