There has been an epidemic of generalizing every tiny individual & particular conflict in life into something large & systemic, tied to "exploitation", "race", "gender", "colonialism", & ancestral "privilege".

Same pple view the world top-down & see benefits in centralization.
3- There is a category of bubblegumheads (say @jaketapper ) who not only overgeneralize but misgeneralize on top: say turning the pullout in Eastern Syria as a US vs Putin.
Quite insulting for the citizens there with #skininthegame
