Agree with anon, interesting topic!

I mean, just to be a nerd, categorical statements are almost always wrong by default but you're talking about the road to hell paved with "national liberation" and it's definitely a huge set of problems.

One of the interesting versions of this problem is when sanctimonious anarchists lecture small, relatively powerless, ethnic identity groups who are trying to resist state or corporate powers.

Pretend for a moment, you're already fighting a juggernaut or three and along comes this snarky windbag who splains to you about identity and implies you're basically a proto-statist or whatever and you're understandably annoyed by this. Maybe you appreciate the nuance but you're reaching out to people using identity because it's one of the only weapons you have and so, bad feelings are had by all!
