The article discusses the nature of political freedom in a context shaped by three simple norms such as political equality, popular sovereignty and majority rule. Five theses on identity politics are presented. Politics involves comparison, choice, and commitment under conditions of conflict. The norm of political equality not only destabilizes temporary victories. It also unsettles taken-for-granted hierarchies.
