England’s Last Gasp of Empire -
“Beneath the surface, he saw an angry, lost society in which the centuries-old pillars of Britishness — empire, church, navy, class — were crumbling.”

Does The Myth of Meritocracy show us how to alleviate inequality?
No debate about social mobility is complete without reference to the supposedly halcyon days of the 1950s and 1960s. The class fluidity of those decades, however, was not the result of professions becoming more meritocratic. It was caused by an unprecedented rise in the number of middle-class jobs: there was more room at the top. [...] Bloodworth writes that 21st-century society is characterised by a dwindling of professional jobs and more people slipping downwards: there is “more room at the bottom”. [...] Globalisation has created what the economist Robert H Frank calls “winner-takes-all” markets

After the EU Referendum: What Next for Britain and Europe? - YouTube
why England voted leave, why did the Project Fear not work? >> "inequality, identity, and immigration." [...] cultural divide (ie the passport statistic - more or less cosmopolitan, plays also into identity), educational divide (higher attainment higher remain votes), and to some smaller parts economic divide [...] and the AGE DIVIDE! [...] median income divide (low median income = leave vote) [...] 'Poorest voted to leave as life can't get any harder. And punch the toffs in the face. The only chance you've got.' [...] net immigration 300k low skilled, the sized of Newcastle = pressure on schools and services (longer queues). + AUSTERITY + secular stagnation + no wage increase + cost of living increase = DISASTER. low skilled England had to compete with low skilled EEA immigrants.

Inside Story - What's the future of the UK in the wake of Brexit? - YouTube
Felt left behind! proxy protest vote. Dog whistle racism/xenophobia. World of post-fact politics and post-fact campaigning! Still a protest vote vs the elite and establishment always promised Disneyland. Reclaiming democracy at home, from bureaucracy, unelected officials, unaccountable ones, in Brussels. Young voters; 3 in 10 voted. Scewed the result somewhat. This is a warning to mainstream parties around the western world. Politics is being hollowed out, voters go to either extremes as alternative!

Feminismus: Fleischhauer zur Emma-Debatte - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Es ist vermutlich kein Zufall, dass der Feminismus in Deutschland von einer Frau angeführt wurde, die sich noch nie groß darum geschert hat, was andere über sie denken, auch nicht in der eigenen Szene. Schwarzer hat immer überlegt, wie sie mit ihren Anliegen möglichst viele Frauen erreichen kann. Der moderne Feminismus geht den umgekehrten Weg. Statt ins Allgemeingültige zielt er ins Sektenhafte und wiederholt damit den Fehler vieler linker Bewegungen, denen die Befassung mit Unterschieden immer wichtiger war als die Betonung von Gemeinsamkeiten und damit der Gewinn an politischer Durchschlagskraft.
