Identity Lists

The reason why I hate all these identity lists in politics is that they purposefully engage the emotional attachments at the core of each identity in the hopes that an emotional explosion will drown out an intellectual response to what is being said. Of course, all politics is manipulative but this kind of tired old manipulation is so transparent and so stupid that it’s time to let go of it.

  1. Could you link to a sample of such a list? I’m curious to see what they are.
