Thinking Progressive #12 - A Progressive Rejection of Identity Politics

Thinking Progressive #12 - A Progressive Rejection of Identity Politics

October 22, 2019

Identity politics have become central to the politics of both liberal and conservatives here in the United States, and the nation is worse off for it. That's because identity politics are tribalism under another name, ultimately serving to divide us. In bringing expanded structure to our movement, progressives should reject identity politics in favor of a more unifying effort to build a majority focused on systemic reform.
