Identity Liberalism


Let’s start the year on a light note and discuss the (end of) Identity Liberalism. Rehashed from a German/European perspective at Der Spiegel. I’d like to note that this is to me extra interesting, because public discourse in Netherland seems busy importing this way of thinking without a reflection on why this type of social justice or identity liberalism is missing the point completely. Coincidentally, ‘safe spaces’ sound exactly like what special snowflake millenials would come up with, unhindered by reality or a good understanding of the history of social justice.

Here’s hoping that this too will go out of fashion.
