So much of what passes for ‘progressive’ politics these days would be totally alien to yesteryear’s leftists and liberals. While liberals and leftists once fought for all people to be treated equally, regardless of their skin colour, woke activists now want to practise race-based discrimination. While feminists once fought to abolish gender stereotypes, trans activists today insist that tomboyish girls and effeminate boys are born in the wrong body and should transition. We are constantly told that people of different races, sexual orientations or genders are so fundamentally different that they cannot possibly understand each other. Universalism is out and a new, regressive politics of identity is in.
