The oppression hierarchies are shifting noticeably nowadays.
Yes, the search for greater
victimhood continues. But how far will 'the left' go? I think calling them 'the left' is a bit of a misnomer, really.
I used to be 'left of centre' but the terms of membership have changed and now I'm classified a Nazi, apparantly. I'm starting to feel less concerned about names.
I suspect the ultimate winners will be the greatest victims to have ever existed. Once all the victims have been categorised, graded and recompensed, a single group of victims will stand head and shoulders above all else as examples of the most enduring homo sapiens ( <-- yikes! Sexist alert! What's the correct term these days?) that have suffered most. They shall be crowned the undisputed overlords and all shall love and honour them. Yippee.

I think there will be no ultimate victims in this hierarchy though, it seems that it is to remain fluid and subject to fashion. the latest push to re-arrange the old hierarchies (gay, race, sex/gender) using transgender issues*** seems to be a move to keep them in flux and and experiment to see what people will tolerate without pushback. I commented this on at the Old Place when trans-issues as a game changer were first floated there around 2015, there was some questioning of this but, as predicted, most swallowed this so-called new paradigm.

*** Notice how "trans-something
" opens up a doorway (neurolinguistically speaking) for trans-humanism
. This may well be the next push.
