Narratives are not as important to non-post-modern cultures who still work, eat, sleep and raise their families, rather then just interact with narratives like you, me and Jean Baudrillard.
But let's unpack your "won't share their ID politics" accusation.
In Cuba, people share a lot of things: their houses, their bikes, their food, their time, their child-rearing responsibilities, etc.
In North America, people feel weird about sharing things for many reasons: germs, fears of looking poor, lack of social trust, lack of connection to others, lack of community, lack of equality.
But one thing that we will always share with people is our ID politics. This allows us to constantly "play the victim" which makes it easier not to share anything or help anyone else.
