Western Identity

4:16pm, 15th February 2018

I wonder some times if being a first/second generation immigrant hasn't just left me with an enduring - though not so potent now - identity crisis but the UK as well. Looking at the increasing reaction against identity politics and the current scrabble for a coherent narrative underpinning western identity, I see parallels in my own being challenged by society to find out who I was, to find a (mostly self-concocted) story which have me something to reference.

I feel conflicted though. I sympathies with the need for a real statement of what western society is about, but at the same time fear that story, as it develops, will evolve to exclude me.
