Globalist Steven Pinker vs. Identity Politics

In The Weekly Standard, globalist Adam Rubenstein interviews fellow globalist Steven Pinker on the topic of identity politics. Early in the interview, Pinker let’s out this howler:

Identity politics is the syndrome in which people’s beliefs and interests are assumed to be determined by their membership in groups, particularly their sex, race, sexual orientation, and disability status. Its signature is the tic of preceding a statement with “As a,” as if that bore on the cogency of what was to follow. Identity politics originated with the fact that members of certain groups really were disadvantaged by their group membership, which forged them into a coalition with common interests: Jews really did have a reason to form the Anti-Defamation League.

In addition, the two discuss the mega-advantages of globalism (no, really).
