Recreating norms

Posted on

This is by Zoe Williams in the Guardian today:

We end this year looking at a lot of wrong crowds – a corporate crowd that avoids tax like crazy, a criminal crowd with new impunity, a banking crowd that thinks of itself as a Calvinist elect, without the self-denial. It's a huge task of regulating and prosecuting and working to remake the norms, but the alternative – to choose a villain and simply hate them with a passion (mine is Philip Green, thank you for asking) – is just a pantomime: enjoyable, but not very enlightening.

Quite so. We need the new thinking that remakes the norms.  My contribution was The Courageous State. And this blog. There will be more next year.
