I am generally allergic to her incessant messaging on social justice, but I liked this satire, because it acknowledges how shallow the fashionable discourse often is, and how when it clashes with unadulterated self-interest, self-interest usually wins:



I guess her message is that this is bad. My gut reaction is that this is how it’s expected to be.

I don’t know. I think expecting people to vote in the best interest of someone else (e.g. the most vulnerable), and not in their own best interest, especially if these happen to be at cross-purposes, is borderline delusional. And it surprises me how seldom I hear variations of the message "know what’s good for you".
