« The Potato Salad Guy Should Keep Every Penny : | Main | They assume that the modern world will continue to exist. »

Modern political discourse centers on identity politics.

Identity politics is based on the theory (always assumed, yet never uttered aloud) that everyone with the same genetics has the same philosophy, political interests, and outlook as members of his own biological group, and can sympathize only with them.
Hence, whenever someone says a man cannot have an opinion about abortion because he is not a woman, the unspoken theory on which that pronouncement turns is the assumption that women’s opinions depend on the XX chromosomal combination, and reason cannot compensate for the lack. Hence, whenever someone says we need more black heroes in movies so that young blacks can have apt role models, the unspoken theory on which that pronouncement turns is the assumption that a man’s admiration for heroics turn on the chromosomes controlling skin melanin, and reason cannot compensate.

Your Say

How can the Left lose something they never had? If you said emotions, that would be a different closet.
