Seemingly, it was decided to undermine this dangerous trend by nudging schools away from 'class economics' and towards studies related to 'individualism'. The left, who found themselves banging against a brick wall of entrenched power and wealth, were 'steered' and 'prodded' towards the path of least resistance, which was th study of 'gender' and 'identities', which whilst appear to offer a 'radical' alternative to fundamental questions about the nature of society, actually, did the opposite for the most part, because they diverted attention away from class and power under a capitalist system.
Now, half a century later one sees the results. The left made to look absurd and ridiculous and alienated from the vast majority of ordinary people, wasting their energies on a 'mirage', and this is tragically ironic, at time when class and growing economic inequalities have never been greater in the modern era.
