From what I can tell, the two of them appear to be members of one another in an infinite loop. Thanos6 (talk) 23:09, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

That's not how categories generally work, is it? Thanos6 (talk) 23:58, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Why not? The categories are there for navigation, like "see also" links. Multiple categories containing each other don't actually create a "loop" in any meaningful sense. As for definitions, they're fairly parallel concepts. Is social justice an example of identity politics or is identity politics an example of social justice?

Every now and then someone tries to streamline the category "system" (I think Human once had a campaign) but we're not an encyclopaedia so there's no need to force a hierarchy. They are, as the mustelid says an additional "see also". Scream!! (talk) 00:30, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, it annoys the part of me that goes "everything must be ordered exactly so according to these systems and hierarchies" (which is, basically, every part of me), but whatever you guys want. Thanos6 (talk) 00:48, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
