Our 'utopia' is perpetual war.

I looked at the date of the video because I couldn't believe that it was a recent one. I thought it had to be one from a few years ago.
Group identity is bad if you are living in an area with a dominant group that you don't really share an identity with. It would be strange if (((Molyneux) would not naturally gravitate towards individualism-preaching.

The reason why so many Canadians are prominent in these identity battles is because of the nature of Canada.
It has no unifying cultural identity.
Not even an abstraction, like the US who rally around this vague concept of 'freedom'.
Canada has nothing but language.
Living in Canada exposes you to a coming post-modern world. It's a United Nations nation.
You feel an alien...or at least I never felt that I belonged.
Everyone is both a member of a group and not a member of other groups, living in close proximity.
You can walk a block and bump into a dozen different nationalities. There are restaurants covering all cuisines.....festivals galore, each community flaunting its uniqueness.
It can be pleasant.....like travelling without going anywhere.
There is no culture, in the world, that is not represented in Canadian urban centres, like Toronto and Montreal.
Cultures that have no assimilated and remain distinct.
The ideals people gravitate towards are based on their desire to keep the thing going...whatever this 'thing' is.
Australia, New Zealand, all ex colonies that have developed an identity.
Not Canada.
It's only attempt to find an identity is as the nation of multiculturalism.
A multi-identity identity....multiple-personality disorder.

What's left but to turn inward?
Individualism is flourishing here...and not the American shallow kind.
A side-effect of this individualism is 'niceness'....the famous Canadian politeness.
'I will not tread on your individuality so that you will do the same'.
Self-repression to preserve fake harmony.
Canadians are introverted individualists.
So, of course a lot of insight will be produced from all this esotericism.
The climate helps. Long cold winters, where all you can do is stay indoors and brood, think, read, write, meditate.
The lifestyle that suits me.

Separate the perspective from the world and you can reinterpret it in any way you desire.
It's all 'subjective' when the language has no objective standard, independent from all perspectives.
An entire tradition can be reinvented, intellectuals can be warped and turned inside out.  
When a theory has no reference to reality then its all a matter of intent - spin-doctoring, word juggling, takes over.
The reference shifts from outside to inside, and emotions, desire, need is the only criterion.

Every book ever written, or that will ever be written, can be converted to a manual supporting whatever you want it to.
Welcome to the magical world of words - matrices of code.
Word is God, God is word.
Feel power by manipulating simpletons who have no clue what symbols are...and know nothing of art.

A gay Jew cannot defend free-speech, so what hope does a European hetero-male?
I want to know what poor sap will marry this 'strong, liberated' and well-edumucated female'....



I a priorily want to de facto want to know.

We can include in the process...
How reality, challenging Abrahamic superstitions, made Marxism inevitable.

The 'logic' of post-modernity can make incest a rational compromise to circumstances.
For this reason paedophilia is the next paraphylia that will be taken off the list of psychosis and normalized, after homosexuality and transsexualism, which is occurring presently.
When 'humanity' has become a concept that replaces 'world', making them synonyms, essentially replacing the word 'God' with the word 'humanity', then all you need is social approval, enforced by the rule of law.

There is no end to how many psychosis can be made normal.

Post-modern crypto-Marxist, recovering Abrahamics, need an enemy to feel victimized. Justifying their idealistic interventions on natural order requires the fabrication of an 'enemy' that proposes no less, and can stand-in for nature's 'prejudices' and 'authoritarian totalitarianism'. They need a 'man who wants to change the world' so they can be the 'man who steps in to prevent it', and by doing so changes it in a way he cannot rationalize, nor admit without contradicting himself – he needs an excuse to return to his normal state of foolhardiness: from naive fool to altruistic hero. He cannot admit that it is he who wishes the world were different, but does not know why, or how to change it.
All he knows is that he must intervene to protect his own sanity, his younger self, from self-aware ridicule. The idea that intervening is an expression of wanting to ‘change the world’, has to be repressed, because that paradox would lead to the next realization that in the face of ‘another', on whose behalf he claims to be innocently and unintentionally intervening, is a projection of himself at a younger age. While he lies that he is looking for a 'way to live his life' he is only begging for an enemy to laugh at, as he would in the face of his younger naive self – unloading decades of scorn, and vindictive self-degradation. He wants to flaunt his overcoming of his past foolishness, proving to himself that he's outgrown it, matured, and that he's made progress towards the realization of a 'life worth living'.    
Nihilism must lie to itself, to deal with the contradictions produced by the dissonance between its naive idealism and a reality it cannot ignore, nor overcome. An awakening Nihilist must lie to himself because he intuitively knows his idealism is naive, and that he would not survive for long if he lived by his own stated values. To hide this fact he must believe that all ideals are like his own – foolish, and childish. He needs this to make sense of his life and the suffering he endured; he needs this to not feel embarrassed by what he cannot let go of, no matter how hard he tries, nor completely think around, no matter how many books he reads or teachers he consults.
Trapped in comforting absolutes he must reduce all to their easy simplicity.
