'We're all different'
'We should celebrate our diversity'
'Multiculturalism is alive and well'
Liberal identity politics has become part of the subconscious. More so in America than in Europe, I think. But the UK is quickly catching up. Ethnicity and multiculturalism have their own university departments.
Nobody dares talk about the common values that unite us. Liberal identity politics doesn't believe in common values.
Therefore, Identity politics is a cancer,and must be countered.
The only way to achieve this is to emphasise common human values and drop the tribal mentalities that dominate society.
Shia Muslims in particular, have the power and knowledge (theoretically), to drive this forward,and become a relevant player in the socio-political world.
At the moment, they are an irrelevance in the western discourse. And that's putting it lightly.
More on this in Christmas. Happy holidays.
