PS. love your comment on how right wingers tend to focus on individual responsibility and left wingers on social culpability. This is a political trend i have often seen myself, yet never put to words. When such discussions arise I tend to promote doubt in others ideology as an ideology, with a thriller lean to the left. I think your environment (where your from, who your parents are, who you associate with, etc) are major players in who you become. I guess that is why i am always looking and never satisfied. However once your hand is dealt, its you who decide how to play 'em. . . .existentialism?

Re: sheesh

There's a problem for that strain of liberalism which strains away from agency, individual responsibility, and existential arguments. The problem is that those who say that victimhood is structural also tend to want to say that society is a "construct" -- something arbitrary and changeable. This ends up in the suggestion that problems aren't really problems, because the powers that be (or other powers) can change them with a shake of the "construct wand".

Seen from a wider angle, though, the individual / social distinction dissolves. The individual is just a microsite where social constructions play out. This doesn't mean they're easily changed. What's arbitrary can also be binding.
