Inequality driving 'deaths of despair' - BBC News
there is income inequality
there is health inequality (air)
there is political inequality, your voice only heard when you have money to donate and can pay lobbyists.
>> electoral reform (1), limit lobby influence and party donations (2), citizens assembly, devolution might have failed.

Widening inequalities in pay, health and opportunities in the UK are undermining trust in democracy, says an Institute for Fiscal Studies report. [...] The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest.

It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education.

The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy".

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), one of the country's leading research institutes, is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality.

That will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton.

‘We've dug ourselves a really deep hole’ – David Neiwert on the rise of the far right | World news | The Guardian
“I mean, Trump’s all about ‘make America great again’. It’s this idea that this American exceptionalism will never die. And it has to die,” he says. He looks out of his window once more, over a neighbourhood partly buried under the glass, steel and concrete of the gentrifiers.

“It has to die because it’s killing us.”

Fresh cuts will leave largest forces in England and Wales with officer numbers last seen in the 1970s [...] “There is no question there will be more obvious rationing of services. The public can already see it is going on,” he said. “We are already not pursuing crimes where we could find a suspect. We are doing things now that surprise me.

“We are struggling to deliver a service to the public. I think criminals are well aware now how stretched we are.”

Kenneth Olisa: ‘To improve social mobility, we need to raise children’s aspirations’ | Society | The Guardian - As the rich get richer, why don’t British people care about inequality? - The solution is to invest in social wealth - The danger is that the paradox of wealth inequality becomes self-reinforcing: as wealth at the top increases, the likelihood of redistributive reform decreases. The reason is that high levels of wealth inequality bias the democratic process. Martin Gilens has documented definitively the “elite economic domination” of American politics. But similar concerns about the unequal influence of the new aristocracy have been raised in Britain.

Underfunded justice system 'crumbling', top criminal barrister says | Law | The Guardian
[pure rational rationing (workload) decisions out of necessity - by individuals, forced upon them by Austerity decisions] Failures to disclose evidence in rape prosecutions are a sign of the “dystopian disaster” engulfing the criminal justice system that has been caused by chronic government underfunding, the head of the criminal bar has warned. Angela Rafferty QC, who represents criminal barristers in England and Wales, criticised ministers for trying to promote the justice system as “a national asset” at the time of Brexit when in reality “the fabric of the court estate [is] crumbling”. [...] The Law Society, which represents solicitors across England and Wales, has launched legal action against the Ministry of Justice for cutting fees for defence lawyers, who have to examine increasingly large volumes of material recovered from mobile phones and laptops.

In our focus on the digital, have we lost our sense of what being human means? | Genevieve Bell | Opinion | The Guardian
MAKE OUR OWN FUTURE - And of course, there are bigger questions about the role of technology more broadly. In making the machines smarter, we have sacrificed a little something of ourselves – we run the risk of being reduced to data and the decisions it drives. I believe we are more than data, more than just intelligence. I worry that, in our current focus on the digital, we have lost some of our agency and some of our sense of what being human might mean. But I don’t believe this is inevitable or irreversible.

The Maybot and Monsieur Zen. A drama that didn’t obey the script | Andrew Rawnsley | Opinion | The Guardian
Despite the manifold advantages with which she started this campaign, Mrs May has never evinced any sense of joy about making a case to the country. That lack of enthusiasm for the democratic moment has also shown. It has shown in her unwillingness to debate directly with other leaders, a refusal to engage with argument that revealed a sense of entitlement to be prime minister – no questions asked. It has shown in the brittleness of her performances when she has deigned to expose herself to the scrutiny of the electorate.

Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen: Wie Wirtschaftskrisen Populisten helfen - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
All das passt zu Zahlen, wonach - auch in Deutschland - eine große Minderheit seit Jahrzehnten real an Einkommen verliert. Und der Abstand zwischen Gewinnern und Verlierern atemberaubend groß geworden ist. Und es passt zum verbreiteten Gefühl, dass nur noch schwer nachzuvollziehen ist, welche Macht Konzerne ausüben. Und wie wenig die Regierungen dem noch entgegenzusetzen haben. [...] All das lässt sich nicht mit ein bisschen mehr Konjunktur beseitigen. Wie der französische Ökonom Thomas Piketty diagnostiziert hat, gibt es eine fast automatische Verschärfung der Ungleichheit - schon weil mit großem Geld mehr zu verdienen ist als mit harter Arbeit.

More than half of donations to EU referendum campaigns came from just ten wealthy donors | The Independent
In its report Take back Control: How big money undermines trust in politics, the campaign group found that of the £31,834,885 donated to both sides during the referendum, £16, 444, 905 – about 52 per cent – came from just 10 individuals or companies. [...] Leave received £17.5 million of all donations - almost exactly one vote for every pound given towards the Brexit campaign - compared to Remain’s £14.2 million.

Transparency International also found that 95 per cent of all money raised during the referendum campaign came from just 100 donors – a tiny fraction of the millions who voted on June 23.

Labour to oppose 'Henry VIII powers' being used to rewrite EU laws | Politics | The Guardian
[ no moderation, moderation is gone. Global Britain is here. 'indyref2 wil happen one way or another. no opposition and no say will infuriate Scots even more eventually ] It is expected that this will involve extensive use of “Henry VIII powers” – laws allowing ministers to change primary legislation (government bills) using secondary legislation (orders that go through parliament with little or no scrutiny). [...] Corbyn said Labour would oppose handing ministers such extensive powers when the House of Commons votes on the great repeal bill. [ less accountability, transparency, democracy, representation ... more technical! technocracy! that was voted actually against as it is practiced in EU ... the irony ] //&!

Donald Trump: Massendemos gegen den neuen US-Präsidenten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kaum ist Donald Trump vereidigt, protestieren weltweit Hunderttausende gegen den neuen US-Präsidenten: Allein in Washington gingen mehr als eine halbe Million Menschen auf die Straße. Doch die Zukunft des Widerstands ist unsicher. [...] Die Demokraten hoffen, dass der Protest in den kommenden Monaten und Jahren auch in politisches Engagement mündet. Die Partei muss sich neu organisieren, personell und strukturell. Eine emotionale Basis könnte die Arbeit erleichtern. Zudem stehen bald viele wichtige Senats- und Gouverneurswahlen an, die das Gleichgewicht in Washington verschieben könnten. Und je mobilisierter die Partei an der Basis ist, desto besser.

Understanding Peter Thiel’s Politics
he “no longer believe[s] that capitalism and democracy are compatible.” (Thiel has since said that he was wrong to think America was a democracy, calling it instead a “state dominated by very unelected, technocratic agencies”). [...] Thiel let slip that he was pessimistic about the current system continuing. The failure of the present Establishment, according to Thiel, may point to Marxism, libertarianism, or something else, but “it’s going to be this increasingly volatile trajectory of figuring out what that’s going to be.” [...] political zero to one

Erdoğan's crackdown: 'Free speech is being rebranded terrorism' – video | World news | The Guardian
Since Turkey’s failed military coup on Friday, more than 6,000 people in the civil service, security forces and military have been arrested. Writers and journalists fear that Turkey’s authoritarian president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, will use the failed putsch as grounds to dramatically escalate his continuing purge of opponents, particularly in the media. Phoebe Greenwood goes to Istanbul to meet the journalists risking life sentences to report and publish stories critical of the Erdoğan government
