Abstract

In this section, the concept of the hipster is summarized as a paradox of self-design that is of little use for the cultural policing entailed by identity politics. In its prioritization of socio-political identification, art and culture can end up sealing such identities, the effects of which are seen in the rise of left-wing censorship and the broad perception of a causal relationship between ethical intention and community consensus.
