Four single mothers win high court benefits battle against DWP | Society | The Guardian
The ruling upstaged an announcement by the work and pensions secretary, Amber Rudd, of her plans to scrap a proposal to extend the two-child benefits cap, as part of an attempt to reset public perceptions of universal credit.

News of the ruling came in the middle of Rudd’s speech, in which she had described universal credit as a “fair and compassionate welfare system”.

&! Don’t be fooled by Amber Rudd’s phoney attempt at compassion
The work and pensions secretary’s universal credit tweak is a PR exercise that will do little to help children living in poverty

Kenneth Olisa: ‘To improve social mobility, we need to raise children’s aspirations’ | Society | The Guardian
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/sep/18/rich-britons-inequality-poverty-social-wealth - 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.

(9098) Did the Sokal affair "destroy postmodernism"? - YouTube
"society of the spectacle" - The Society of the Spectacle is a 1967 work of philosophy and Marxist critical theory by Guy Debord, in which the author develops and presents the concept of the Spectacle. The book is considered a seminal text for the Situationist movement. // Mass media and commodity fetishism - Comparison between religion and marketing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Society_of_the_Spectacle --- In his analysis of the spectacular society, Debord notes that the quality of life is impoverished,[6] with such a lack of authenticity that human perceptions are affected, and an attendant degradation of knowledge, which in turn hinders critical thought.[7] Debord analyzes the use of knowledge to assuage reality: the spectacle obfuscates the past, imploding it with the future into an undifferentiated mass, a type of never-ending present; in this way the spectacle prevents individuals from realizing that the society of spectacle is only a moment in history, one that can be overturned through revolution.[8][9] << see by Byung-chul han - Psycho politics and the tired exhausted depressed worker who can't imagine getting up for a revolution. thus votes brexit and trump. where am I getting my pizza if we have a revolution?

National minimum wage rise still fails to cover living costs, study shows | Society | The Guardian
Workers on the national minimum wage would still need to work for an extra six weeks just to cover their everyday living costs, despite an inflation-beating pay rise from this weekend, according to analysis.

More than 2 million workers are to receive a pay rise of at least 4.4% from Sunday, as the government’s national living wage increases to £7.83 per hour from £7.50 for over-25s. The increase amounts to more than £600 per year for full-time workers on basic pay.

Almost all the 10 million jobs created since 2005 are temporary — Quartz
“We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Krueger. “And over 60% was due to the [the rise] of independent contractors, freelancers and contract company workers.” In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment. - https://www.reddit.com/r/Economics/comments/79jmuh/almost_all_the_10_million_jobs_created_since_2005/

I sold sex to fund my unpaid internships. Poor kids are still battling the class gap | Paris Lees | Opinion | The Guardian
Granularitaet von Lebenslaeufen. Ossi diskrimination (monitor) in den CEO etagen sind ossis und auch politik nicht angekommen auf bundesebene. privileg always having a leg-up from parents or grandparents. // I remember going on Radio 4 a few years ago, and thinking that all the people I met inside Broadcasting House sounded strange. I couldn’t put my finger on it at first. And then the penny dropped. They sounded like the people on television. The people on the radio. The people you see on the news. The way prime ministers sound. I remember sitting in the car on the way home and realising: “Oh, you’re the people who run everything.”

How your blood may predict your future health | Inequality | The Guardian
New research into bloodstream ‘biomarkers’ aims to unlock the full impact of social status on people’s lifetime health outcomes. The key is exposure to stress - quantitated self. making decisions on your own when presented w data? in case of the weight scale, never worked. why will it now? its just more medicalisation - door open for big pharma so people pop pills. vs inconvenience of changing diet lifestyle and learning something new like cooking and meditation. // &! Deprivation and Poverty Stress: The analysis suggested people in lower socioeconomic groups have a demonstrably longer exposure to chronic inflammation – with all its knock-on impacts on long-term health – even once the team corrected for the “usual suspects” of health inequality, including diet and smoking. There’s clearly something else at work. (inequality = health inequality)

Mental health: 10 charts on the scale of the problem - BBC News
Over 10 years NHS prescriped 100% more anti-depressants. Medicalised Society. Parked indefinetly on management medication no healing. Left behind. // But so too is the fact prescribing patterns have changed. Doctors are much more likely to keep people on drugs for longer with evidence suggesting it is a more effective way of treating patients.
But as common as antidepressants are, the fact remains the majority of people with mental illness report they are not getting help.
Only one in three of those polled said they were receiving treatment, according to NHS Digital.

Theresa May urged to halt Universal Credit rollout - BBC News
Conservative MP Stephen McPartland said his concern with Universal Credit was that for "every pound these people earn, extra, the government's taking 63p back off them".
"To me that is an effective tax rate of 63%, which is ridiculous. So the lowest paid are effectively having to pay some of the highest taxes," he told BBC Radio 4's the World at One. &! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41278248

Germany's AfD: how to understand the rise of the right-wing populists
Indeed, the party’s name stems from Angela Merkel’s now famous observation that there was no alternative to the policies her government put in place in a bid to save the euro at the height of the financial crisis. [...] The AfD is, however, a rather more complicated beast than that. Although many of the Eurosceptics who founded the party have long since left, their influence has not vanished completely. One of the AfD’s two "leading candidates" for the 2017 election, Alice Weidel, for example, is a 38-year-old lesbian who used to work for Goldman Sachs. She speaks fluent Mandarin and spent six years in China writing a PhD on the Chinese pension system. She is certainly not the archetypal leader of a far-right party.
