I certainly enjoyed it.

Well, an observer of British culture wrote that hypocrisy is a core trait of Britishness, and moral panics are of course pure hypocrisy in action.

And I can imagine a link to managerialism: one of the most important tools of that ideology is again hypocrisy, along the lines you describe above, about the ability to offer a well managed front (because managerialism is all about fronts, it is a Potemkin village ideology).

These moral panics and their threat to freedom are an abhorrent outrage that must be stamped out!

the current generations are a group of weak kneed complainers who buckle under any adversity from the rulers and their minions.
As for freedom - nowadays it is the right to obey and no more.
