Identity Politics Is A Huge Threat to Our Country by The Elephant's Child

I ran into this article on “Identity politics” and with all the terminology thrown around today, I realized I was not really sure what was meant by the term. so I looked it up. The formal definition is here. Powerline linked to a Heritage Foundation panel on the problem which I found completely fascinating. It’s  sharp look at what is going on in our world today, by several of the sharpest minds out there, who all consider this real problem but differently. Each of the panelists had 10 minutes, which they over ran, but the proposed time limit kept it shorter than it might have otherwise been. I think most of us are somewhat aware that we are hovering around the edges of a political civil war. It’s getting increasingly angry out there:

If you are going to solve a problem, you have to understand what it is first. There is a deep lack of understanding of ordinary human nature. Life is hard, you will make mistakes. You enjoy being with people who share your interests, whether it’s a knitting circle, or watching a football game. Selecting such a group is not prejudice against some other group or sexual identity. More women are apt to be interested in knitting, and more men are apt to care about a football game. Human nature.
