Seeing 'identity' and grievance-culture at work in groups that have actual power: KKK, Nazis, Republicans etc. should provide enough cautionary examples for anyone.

Still, genuinely deprived groups, and groups with disconnected of suppressed identity, need SOMETHING to move out into a more balanced connection to the larger world/society.

Of course, the mistake lies in not understanding that dividing people is the very point of the exercise. Once you realise that these people are learning directly from the experience of North Korean interrogators of American prisoners during the Korean War, and of Struggle Groups during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, then everything becomes much easier to explain.
