I'm not really going to disagree with any of this, not even the git about the gap between the credentialed class, that focuses on identity issues, and the working class, that focuses on economic issues (though as always a class-based analysis is far too coarse to be useful). "As the 'wealth pump' pushes money to the top of the pyramid, the elite, wealth is pushed from the poor to the rich, accompanied by the disappointment of even middle class aspirants (graduates), who have also become part of the precariat." It's all too easy in this environment to find scapegoats. We need to resist this trend. See also: the Guardian.
