Bob Murphy on How Identity Politics Hurts Everyone

I rarely find time to listen to podcasts that are longer than 10 minutes. But I found the following description intriguing:

Pointing to a recent Twitter thread from a progressive detailing his white male cisness, Bob shows how narrow the focus is on only particular “privileges” and not others. More generally, the effort to demonize white men is causing young people great harm, whether white or otherwise. The movement is based on power politics and relies on economic ignorance.

Bob Murphy is a friend but that’s not typically enough to get me listening. In this case I was glad I did.

The podcast is titled “Identity Politics Is Hurting Young People–Of all Colors,” July 9, 2020.

If you’re in a hurry, start at about 1:30 and go to about 15:00. You’ll get his most important message. But also I thought that the material in the last 5 or 6 minutes, where he discusses the U.S. women’s soccer team, was very good also.
