Sargon of Akkad has been discussing the importance of moving from identity politics to issue politics. He provides an explanation in this short video.
But I question if moving away from identity politics is even possible. As humans, we are hard wired to belong to the tribe.
In a homogeneous country where people share the same ethnicity, religion, language and culture, it is possible to focus more on the issues than on identities. But diversity fractures a society and causes people to look first at identities.
As such, if we want to move away from identity politics, the answer is nationalism. Within nationalism we share a common identity and debate of the issues is possible.
