identity politics

Identity politics has spread like a virus in the past decade, as neoliberal corporate political elites blend partisan duopoly atomization tactics with team-game activism of gender and sexuality movements whose proven efficacy in their extraordinarily successful campaigns for gay equality is a blueprint for achieving sociocultural goals. Like most opportunistic strategies prosecuted against the general public by elite interests, identity politics has its roots in genuine and persistent inequities.

Critical race theory (CRT) is a useful case in point.

#BlackLivesMatter is a good timeline of recent identarian viral vector manipulation.


Civil Rights movements of the 1950s and 1960s were the grassroots of activist awakening. The 1970s and 1980s saw the capture of the successor leaders (Clyburn, Sharpton, Jackson) and the fermentation of a usable post-modernist version of Critical Race Theory in universities and colleges nationwide.


What had been a marginalized complex of movements were looked on more favourably by the duopoly elites seeking to win popular polarized votes during the 1990s and 2000s and pushed to divisive extremism in the 2010s by way of calcifying the corporate-oligarchy stranglehold on federal, state and local power dynamics.


Democratic Party has taken on the “pro” civil rights mantle, appropriating the civil rights cause, buying in its most prominent advocates and mobilizing a generation of tech-savvy young adults to take command of the equality messaging moral high ground. Republican Party, on the other hand, has followed its natural populist inclinations to shepherd the “anti” reactionary white majority and the aspirant ‘tradition-loving’ star-spangled melting pot into reliable “Make America Great Again” voter blocs.

“Polarization into extreme ‘base’ blocs is an excellent control mechanism for subverting democracy’s universal suffrage into a shock absorber for continued corporate duopolist domination of power and wealth. Propaganda can be perpetual, easy to learn your particular team’s orthodoxies and gratefully devoured by the respective loyal supporters. Stability litmus of public opinion and ‘lively debate’ in the public square can compete for the small percentage of floating voters without ever facing a challenge from ‘third rail’ non-conformists.”
