Using “Voltage” as a Political Weapon

In a meritocracy or republic, “fairness” or “privilege” shouldn’t matter. Rule of law should protect everyone against mob usurpation of individual rights. The extent to which poorly defined ideas about fairness do matter, and are weaponized in our culture is the extent to which “identity politics” has overcome a meritocratic republic. Perhaps we need to learn to fight the “voltage” aka “fairness” battle while simultaneously fighting to return to a foundation of republican rule of law. Is this possible? You decide.
