A theory was you are as you feel (or think about yourself). There was a bit of truth to it. If you feel you can succeed; know you can do it, your chances are better you will. That has been perverted by #IdentityPolitics. Feeling good about yourself is the end goal without looking at it as a potential for action, creation or achievement. This creates stagnation and reduces the threat to "The System" you might call them out for their actions (or inaction) and toss them out of power. The #emasculation of the human race.
