Identities vs Ideas

If identity is everything, ideas mean shit. If it is the who that counts–who thinks the thought, who makes the thing, who performs–than the idea, the thing, the performance is nothing.

Identity “politics” is the negation of politics. It is willed stupidity. More than that, it is willed bigotry covered up by the rhetoric of minority rights.

The sleep of reason produces monsters. But first, it produces idiots.
