History shows that outsiders have a track record of punishing insiders, witness the Norman conquest et al.

This is precisely why the Blue Labour thing was so bad: you cannot avoid out-group stigma when fostering strong communities, no matter how much you may like to.

Set me thinking that the above human behaviour, along with others might represent the fundamental building blocks of economics and might point the way to modelling economies (perhaps this is already done). Engineers use the simple properties of beams and struts or capacitors and resistors to model very completely the behavior of bridges, aircraft and Iphones. The tricky bit is the equations linking the simple component parts to the overall.

So, a mathematical challenge might be to write down the equations for greed, envy, cruelty and lust etc etc and couple them to the FTSE in a useful way. I wonder why progress seems rather slow - although I can see a few difficulties.

The problem is I have only seen lefties using the word "skivers" in serious discourse. You're building a straw man around something IDS and the Tories are simply not doing.

that's really fascinating but I wonder then is it possible to compensate for a seemingly inate human capacity to prejudice the 'other'?

"Social solidarity, tradition and community (all good) can end up being defensive and fearful of 'otherness' (bad)."


Or to put it another way, defensiveness and fear of "otherness" can result in social solidarity, tradition, and community.
