A great opportunity to face off against the welfare-society, everybody’s-special, politically-correct Gramscian-derived drivel that encourages us to forget our roots, most especially in a Darwinian sense, and follow our fellow lemmings (false story, but the myth lives on) over the cliff.
It’s all about struggles for scarce resources, whether economic, social, cultural or whatever. The bottom line, though, is all about what Rowbotham calls ‘The importance of being noticed.’ Each of us, he or she or in between, seeks the approval of our peers, however defined. For those of us at the fringes of society, we find alternative honor codes. Islamist fascists come to mind. Even so, all of us fall somewhere on the scale/continuum, each longing to feel important.
