    The Problem of Identity Politics and Its Solution

    I have heard the term "Identity Politics" but had not really considered it's meaning, until I read this excellent article in Imprimis, a publication of Hillsdale College. Here's the first paragraph:

    "The beginnings of identity politics can be traced to 1973, the year the first volume of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago—a book that demolished any pretense of communism’s moral authority—was published in the West. The ideological challenge of socialism was fading, its fighting spirit dwindling. This presented a challenge for the Left: how to carry on the fight against capitalism when its major ideological alternative was no longer viable?"

    That paragraph hooked me. The rest is well worth reading, I think. If you want to do so, you can go here.

    Identity politics is what the serpent did to Adam and Eve He put it out that they were being held down by God for telling them they couldn't eat from a single solitary tree amoung probably 1000"s It was a garden.

      I liked the article so much I printed it off. This is so well worth reading! If there is any doubt as to where the Democrats are headed this will clearly spell it out in detail.

      God Bless you Eric T. for sharing it with us.
