Don’t Let Identity Politics Ruin Your Thanksgiving | Direct Message

Our culture is suffering from a potentially fatal allergy. Identity politics has become a kind of autoimmune disease that threatens to kill the host. We've become hypersensitive to our superficial identities just as our kids have become hypersensitive to most of the components of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

We're going to need more than an emergency epipen if we want to stop this disease and get back on track to stability and health as a society. And no, we can't just “get along” in some utopian, post-identity abstract metaverse. Our challenge is much more complicated, and more human than that. If we don’t recognize and effectively treat what’s making us, and especially our kids, so dangerously hypersensitive about our own identities and downright allergic to every difference, our society might not recover from our next tribal anaphylactic shock.
