/65/ Bunga Gets Ultra-Real ft. Steve Hall

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-g9f8t-a9eaf7

On crime and the far-right. Prof Steve Hall explains what ‘ultra-realism’ in criminology means – and why we need to get beyond liberal idealism. We also discuss the rise of the English far-right, the EDL – and how a narrative of betrayal coheres it. Why do middle-class liberals have such a horror of authority – and why it’s essential that the Left reclaim it. How are so many contemporary ideologies no longer fit for purpose? Also: what is ‘special liberty’ and how does it differ from entitlement?
