That's probably better for the Cathedral, as the alternative facts--human biodiversity, IQ, sexual dimorphism, crime rates, ad infinitum--turret is even easier to turn around on those who deploy it than the stated desire for "an honest conversation about race" is.
This week I saw a dumpy middle-aged white woman (no ring) wearing a black t-shirt with white lettering that simply read "#resist". That term is as bad as the clumsy and confusing slogan "love trumps hate".
For one, it concedes a seductiveness about the thing--America First, Make America Great Again, Trump--that must be resisted. You don't get a woman to eat better by telling her over and over again to resist the temptation to have that piece of cheesecake or get a guy off his porn addiction by having him watch it while encouraging him to resist the urge to masturbate.
Its individualistic focus undercuts its crucial role in motivating people to join a cause bigger than themselves Parenthetically, this is why libertarianism's focus on "individual liberty" has a support ceiling of a few percent of aspergy, high IQ male WEIRDOs and no one else. Emphasis on the "non-aggression principle" is better (as a recruiting tool--that's not a subjective judgment on my part).
It's also feeble, exactly the sort of thing that appeals to post-menopausal SWPL women and no else. Something aspirational like "#TheResistance" evokes stronger imagery and is more compelling.
There's no risk in us discussing this. These covens of cat ladies are clueless. They're too self-indulgent to realize any of it. It's another illustration of how all we need is an even playing field to route our opposition.
