  1. Re: How the Far-Right Views the Economy and the Stab-in-the-Back Myth

    First of all, sorry for the following zebra post, there is just a lot of substance I need to reply to, which you may well take as a compliment.

    So in other words a notion one can fling about and...

  3. Re: How the Far-Right Views the Economy and the Stab-in-the-Back Myth

    Right, I think we need to clarify some things.

    You use "cosmopolitan liberalism" as a coherent social and economic doctrine. Can you specify what the contents of said alleged doctrine are and how...
  4. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    That is at the very least a consistent view then, fair point. I would still hold against the original sentiment ("local jobs for local people") that being born somewhere or moved there as a young...
  5. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    Sorry, I meant those people that grew up elsewhere but with parents from NI, and only moved to NI much later in their lives. Would they count as local?
  6. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    What makes the second class of people local even though they do not satisfy your definition of being born there? Just the „blood“/descendance aspect?
  7. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    So second generation immigrants are local as well? And people born and raised abroad by parents hailing from NI aren't local when they move to NI?
  8. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    Why would it be wrong for Polish speaking people to live in Northern Ireland?

    As for the 'local jobs for local people', how do you define 'local people'?
  9. Re: Lower than a snake's belly: Myths and realities of immigration

    The example of the Greek refugees in Greece is a strong case against mere "ontological otherness" as the driving factor. In fact, every group and every identity is no more than a, however widely...
  10. Re: How the Far-Right Views the Economy and the Stab-in-the-Back Myth

    You already defined wealthy businessmen as top CEOs, fair enough.
    Influential journalists - how do you measure influence? Do you have examples for, say the UK, which journalists you'd count among...
  11. Re: How the Far-Right Views the Economy and the Stab-in-the-Back Myth

    I don't think such a sweeping verdict is warranted. As Muizer said, you really need to define the "elite(s)" you are talking about before you can get any reasonable answer. There are at least four...
