Nothing floats liberalism like identity politics. Nobody’s an individual: we are significant only in terms of our membership in an identifiable group. If we want to prosper, we must arrange to be included in a group identified as victims. Then we are entitled to other people’s stuff.
Anyhow, here’s how identity politics works. See if you can follow the simple logic in this example:
*Amelia Earhart was a woman.
*Amelia Earhart was an aviation pioneer.
*I, Reesha Plopkin, am a woman.
*Therefore I, Reesha Plopkin, am an aviation pioneer.
In Lesson Two, we shall see that all Ms. Plopkin has to do is self-identify as a jet pilot–and that makes her one. Hand her the keys to the jump jet!
