Western society has a lot of work to do to undo the incredible damage done by the progressive left. What is needed is a social surge. How we go about doing it without charging, breeching and tearing down the ramparts is a challenge. If it cannot be done peacefully, a Darwinian struggle will emerge and it will happen the old fashion way. The problem is slowly being recognized. Some thoughts from The Telegraph :
...When the great progressive movement for personal liberation took hold of our public institutions - when the concept of authority itself was trashed by the education system, the media and the mainstream culture, and the idea of individual guilt was replaced by the assumption that all crime and bad behaviour had a socially determined "cause" - it was not the educated, affluent classes who were cut adrift.The entire essay
They usually had the confidence and the connections to cultivate their comfortable rebelliousness and cope with their wayward children. (But not always - the odd drug overdose hit even the most smugly "enlightened" household.)
What everybody failed to notice as all those "repressive" old prejudices were gleefully dismantled was that it was the poor - struggling to keep their families on the straight and narrow - who depended on devices such as stigma and shame to police their own communities.
There was a time when parents who were not all that secure in their own ability to supervise the young - who themselves may not have been particularly rigorous in their moral standards, and perhaps did not have the psychological resources to maintain consistent order - could rely on the support of public institutions.
They could expect the schools to encourage outer discipline and the inner self-discipline of structured learning. They could expect the State to attempt to deter single girls from having babies on their own. They could expect the police and the courts to side unfailingly with the law-abiding rather than offer excuses for the criminal.
They could, in other words, count on the idea that all of the forces of adult life were joined together to uphold the structure of civilised life: that we all had pretty much the same conception of right and wrong, and the will to enforce it.
The British elites persuaded themselves that their great crime was to impose bourgeois values on everyone. In fact, it is the undermining of those values that is destroying the lives of the poor.
