Identity

by Francis Fukuyama

Identity

Francis Fukuyama

Overview

As human beings, the need to fit in runs deep. Throughout history, forming into groups was essential to survival. Today, we still love to sort ourselves into groups with a common goal. When these groups are with people who share traits with us like gender, sexual orientation, political party, or religion, this is called identity politics. Groups like these have seen a surge in recent times, and though we should be proud of our identities, they have a tendency to divide us as people.

Francis Fukuyama explores the evolution of identity, explains the problems with identifying only with those like us. He explains we have forgotten the importance of sharing national beliefs, and now more than ever we need to find a way to have an identity that supports our democracy, instead of undermining it.

"'Who am I, really?' The search for an answer produces feelings of alienation and anxiety, and can only be relieved when one accepts that inner self and receives public recognition for it."
