Explaining Identity and Prejudice.

Explaining Identity and Prejudice. An interview with the author of a new theory of identity politics. By Mark Tapson
The "Elitist Paradigm" propounded by Prof. Bloch explains the weakening of cultural self-confidence in the West. With specific reference to Jews, he iterates many reasons for Jewish self-abnegation. This interview does not contain a solution or prognostication. My reading of history is that a society that lacks self-confidence and optimism about the future will likely be superseded by one that is confident enough to strive for supremacy. This is likely to happen by withering into one form of fragmented dysfunction or another, an inability to cohere around a general consensus. Yours truly, Larry Greenberg
