There's a "left" and "right" (if you want to use those terms) in
post-structuralism and identity politics in humanities and social sciences,
as well as between "soft" sciences and "hard" sciences, but this highlights
the growing divide between those divisions. Whereas it used to be more
in-family fighting, or the airing of dirty laundry, it is now becoming
fodder for the growing ideological divide we are witnessing. Now, the
alt-right have "academic" proof of their positions and so can can act on
their ambitions with some level of sophistication instead of vulgar racism,
sexism, homo and trans phobia.
