Personally, I think it's a vicious cycle only if people assume that they're doing enough to question their own biases, only if people assume that their desire to talk about specific subjects over others are their own desires rather than desires that are the ones created through capitalist subject-formation.

Undertaking the journey to recreate ourselves outside of the alienating mould that capitalism has provided for us is the hard but straightforward way to overcome this problem, here and irl.

Not that navel-gazing and working on ourselves is necessarily desirable (I think we're likely all lost causes anyway, tbh!), but I think it is desirable insofar as it allows us to be in solidarity with others and so to pave the way for a nicer world.
