    ****3/4

    Great, essential reading which loses a quarter-star for a bit of cognitive dissonance in being unwilling to follow the argument to its conclusion or to the radical of the issues discussed.

    Any other minor quibbles are easily forgiven in such a work which is true modern prophecy - it speaks on behalf of the eternal and immutable Truth to power - the slave morality 'power' of the faux-victims of victim culture, the thought police and SJWs, and the minority-identity political agitators who h

    Any other minor quibbles are easily forgiven in such a work which is true modern prophecy - it speaks on behalf of the eternal and immutable Truth to power - the slave morality 'power' of the faux-victims of victim culture, the thought police and SJWs, and the minority-identity political agitators who have replaced the old gods with new idols, Baalim and Asherah, in many of the halls of academia.

    Lately I have felt a lot like Alice in Wonderland, as if I have wandered into some fantastical, surrealistic place where UP is down and DOWN is up. Reading this book helped me see some things I had not noticed before. For example, that the capital letter "I" in Identity Politics has translated into “I/Me-/Mine” instead of “we” or “us” together. This clarified for me how the I-I-I of Identity Politics has morphed over the years -- from initial efforts to achieve diversity into rules for protectin

    Lately I have felt a lot like Alice in Wonderland, as if I have wandered into some fantastical, surrealistic place where UP is down and DOWN is up. Reading this book helped me see some things I had not noticed before. For example, that the capital letter "I" in Identity Politics has translated into “I/Me-/Mine” instead of “we” or “us” together. This clarified for me how the I-I-I of Identity Politics has morphed over the years -- from initial efforts to achieve diversity into rules for protecting the diversifiers.

    Gradually, color-blind meritocracy became a passe idea as diversity hip-checked all other goals (like encountering, considering, and debating divergent opinions). Soon the diversifiers wanted courses to be more representational of themselves, so colleges revised their curricula accordingly. Teaching English Literature, for example, was found to skew “too white” due to the reality that most of the people who wrote it were white men. In an online petition, students claimed that it is actively harmful to spend a year “around a seminar table where the literary contributions of women, people of color, and queer folk are absent.”

    This book was like a walk through Wonderland for me -- a walk down myriad stepping stones that led to perceiving the dominant voice as oppressive, as the voce of old America, where the worst trait one could have was “privilege” and where all patriarchy, toxic masculinity, repression of women, and sinister lacks of diversity have now been banished forever. I found it an interesting factoid that comedians like Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher are no longer playing to college audiences. They say the kids are so politically correct that they don’t laugh at anything anymore. It sounds like Puritans in contemporary times: trigger-happy and eager to dash off on the next witch hunt.

    People shouting OUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD have overwhelmed the underlying current of such American ideals as "E pluribus unum". Apparently the “I” that stands for “I” and for “Me” and for “Mine” frowns upon unity amidst difference. To say "We're all one race, the human race" is not considered respectful anymore. In fact, it’s considered hateful and even racist because it tries to minimize racial and ethnic experiences.

    For me, this book exposes Identity Politics as divisive, not unifying, and the goal of diversity as a goal that promotes difference. Difference is division, and so this book generated a simple eureka: division divides.
