It’s a phrase never really before heard in the American cultural lexicon until recently: identity politics. It means that people’s politics are now explicitly ordered around their own personal identities. So abortion, same-sex marriage, so-called social justice issues become the center of being, the reason for existence for millions of Americans, tens of millions, and the political process is used to force these views on the culture. What can’t be done legislatively is accomplished judicially, but each avenue is owing to identity politics.
