Identity Politics: Divisive Tool of the Police State

Political correctness has so many Americans under the yoke of socially-imposed tyranny that they're completely incapable of mustering up the courage to voice a potentially controversial opinion. America has been divided along identity lines, which makes it extremely difficult for any diverse group to come together and achieve one single objective, namely challenging the military-industrial-prison complex. Take for example the Occupy Wall Street movement, the closest thing that this generation has had to a mass protest movement: it failed miserably because white males were either neutered by the group, or accused of abusing their "privilege."
The word "privilege" used to carry connotations of an elite, luxurious life that was often above the law; this is no longer the case. In America, being a white male from a somewhat stable financial background makes you "privileged." Though that same white American faces the risk of a SWAT team kicking down his door for a non-violent drug offense, though that same white American faces the daily risk of bankruptcy due to an unforeseen medical emergency, though that same white American can be imprisoned for failure to pay child support or another court-obligated debt, liberal academia teaches us that that American has a life so good that he should acknowledge it in front of a crowd and recognize that he already enjoys too much.

Though the average black male in a Northern European street relishes more personal rights, has a more secure future, and enjoys a higher quality of life than your typical white male in the Appalachians, liberal academia teaches us not to aim for a better society, but to feel shame at already enjoying the privilege of living in a virtual police state that caters to the oligarchy, the 1%. The definition of "privilege" that liberal academia seeks to teach is one of mediocrity and conformity.

The misguided belief in "privilege" that has swept America only serves to divide college students, the demographic most likely to protest our current imperial police state. In America, men and women are so divided that many cautious men are afraid of being alone with women they don't know. It used to be that women were afraid of being alone in strange places with strange men because they feared being raped; and this is still the case, but it is also now the case that many men are afraid of fraternizing with women because federally-mandated Title IX courts mean that any college male can have his life ruined by one single, hard-to-prove allegation of sexual misconduct. 

Any cautious man who wants to secure his future in America should be wary of drinking and fraternizing with his female counterparts, lest his life be ruined by a single wrong statement. If you were to open the pages of your typical college newspaper, you'll notice that most articles revolve around denunciations of racism, privilege, misogynism, or other safe topics. The only critical essay that is guaranteed to not damage a student's future is one in which he decries the social injustices committed by the masses against a minority. An article critical of the military-industrial complex or critical of injustices committed by the state against everyone is often denounced or relegated to the fringe. 

Identity politics has so warped the priorities of the average millennial that a satirical article praising the NSA for its diligent work in promoting diversity among its employees and its focus on targeting "hate groups" would likely receive little criticism. In the Soviet Union the people learned that the enemy was not the state, but rather the capitalist seeking to exploit and profit from the workers. In the United States, the enemy is not the state, but rather those who fail to recognize the privilege that the state allows them to enjoy.
