The Labor Lord has interesting ideas.   If you are tired of the old dichotomies, read this (from the Guardian of all places).

Quote:
In essence, he is making a plea for rootedness, an organic rather than an atomised society, the reassertion of place and identity, and the re-creation of a society founded on stable work, or as he prefers to call it "vocation" – a key word in his lexicon. His approach is a curious mix of conservative and radical. It presupposes that the past 30 years have seen a coup by elites – primarily finance capitalists in the City of London – at the expense of working people, and he wants to lead a counter-revolution. Turning back the clock – to 1945 or, since Glasman hymns the way ordinary people resisted the enclosures, perhaps 1745 – becomes a radical gesture.
