As I started to read article, I realized a lot of potential on content. As I read further it became contentious and in the end I had many disagreements. Human life and social patterns are a continuous experiment, there are no laws. Every generation is confronted with the puzzle of life and how to bond with fellow human beings. Even at a "wise" age, the New Year presents many challenges. To stay young at heart, stay true to your ideals, I do. A hard core optimist. ;)
To blame the Enlightenment for the perils in today's society ... is a bit beyond my comprehension.
A wish to return to chivalry and the Holy Roman Empire? Go East young man, go East: for starters Saudi Arabia, Emirates and Iran and most nations in between.
More below the fold ...
Interesting to take a look at the author who died in 2018.
In The New East End (2006) he explored, with co-authors Kate Gavron and Michael Young (died 2002), the attitudes of the white working class to Bangladeshi immigrants in the London area of Tower Hamlets and particularly the tensions between the two over the allocation of social housing. The book was an updating of Young's East End, Family and Kinship (1957). The authors concluded that the alienation of the white community in the area was partly an unintended consequence of policies designed to help the poorest in society but which ignored the legitimate expectations of other communities such as the white working class.
