Chavs: The Demonization of the Working Class - Owen Jones

As a self-defined member of the working class (and a disabled one at that), I'm sick of a society that demonises my social group for the sole purpose of lining the pockets of the rich. People fail to consider that they too may become disabed at any point and instead join in the hatred that our corrupt system perpetuates. And I'm not just talking about the U.K here, I'm looking at you too America. No-one is actually that intereted in these issues, at least not that I'm aware. All that seemingly matters to most people is that they're part of the "middle class" and as far from a vulnerabe member of society as possibe. This is wrong and the society that perpetuates it is broken.This book, a free friday read, addresses these issues and then some. Owen Jones is a fantastic pioneer of the left.
