By Zygmunt Bauman
It truly is regularly assumed that how to aid the terrible out in their distress is to permit the wealthy to get richer, that if the wealthy pay much less taxes then all of the remainder of us could be at an advantage, and that during the ultimate research the richness of the few merits us all. And but those generally held ideals are flatly contradicted through our day-by-day adventure, an abundance of analysis findings and, certainly, good judgment. Such strange discrepancy among challenging evidence and renowned reviews makes one pause and ask: why are those evaluations so frequent and proof against collected and fast-growing facts on the contrary?
This brief e-book is by means of one of many world’s best social thinkers is an try and solution this query. Bauman lists and scrutinizes the tacit assumptions and unreflected-upon convictions upon which such critiques are grounded, discovering them one after the other to be fake, deceitful and deceptive. Their patience can be rarely sustainable have been it now not for the function they play in protecting - certainly, selling and reinforcing - the present, exceptional, indefensible and nonetheless accelerating progress in social inequality and the quickly widening hole among the elite of the wealthy and the remainder of society.
