He traditional left right divides as he introduces ideas whose time has come Utopia for Realists is one of those rare books that takes you by surprise and challenges what you think you know In the words of leading. A reasonably good summary of the history of niversal basic income and the drive to a shorter working week although if you ve read a few long essays on those topics it s nlikely you ll learn much Unfortunately the book is spoiled by a few things Firstly while I get that it has a point of view that it s conveying one that I agree with I could ve done with opposing arguments if only to arm myself in futureSecondly one of the arguments Is For Open Borders for open borders the author suggests would have next to no ill effects not even in the short term True he suggests phasing it them slowly but it seems to be that there would be problems for some people and to just say redistribution is not an answer Finally he goes off on a bizarre rant at the end against identity politics and the left wallowing in moral superiority to which I say FUCK THAT NOISE Racism and sexism are no small things and it s good that people are Pursuing Sexual Wholeness upset about them And why can t the left walk and chew gum at the same time Striving towardstopia reuires true euality and it s a real black eye that this book ends in such a childish manner I respond to Balzac et la Petite Tailleuse chinoise utopian thinking the way any other moderately informed liberal does Well wouldn t that be nice oO But the I read of Bregman s book the my resistance melted away Why aren Something I hear not infreuently at the moment is a prediction that this crisis is going to really really make a difference The world will never be the same again At that point in the conversation and there are damned few conversations to be had right now but nevertheless at that point I tend to go a bitiet Because what I m thinking is BULLSHIT Which I m too polite to say Cos what I m thinking is actually people have really really short memories and those who haven t been left Intrusul unemployed and homeless by the projected economic downturn will go back to Life As They Knew It and in fact we ll have a sudden surge as everyone tries to catchp with all the holidays they missed and the stuff they didn t buy Only this morning on German TV there was an idea that the car industry would need a government boost after the corona crisis Really Subsidies to encourage people to buy cars and not as was the case pre pandemic to encourage people to buy electric cars no The government proposes to se taxpayers money to pay people to buy ANY kind of car But then maybe the idea people are expressing is not so much a prediction as a fervent wishAnd that is not bullshit not at all in fact it s reasonable and sensible because as Bregman Points Out In This Dazzling out in this dazzling a sudden shock CAN be a powerful instrument of change The thing is though that the ideas for change have to already be flying around like the famous roast chickens in Cockaigne ready to be plucked from the air I suppose the radical New Thinking that was gaining currency just before Covid 19 was Climate Change And now we can all see.
