Self-loathing liberals

This is funny, (from Normblog).

When I was at university, one distinguished social history professor's theme was that the death of the community has been greatly exaggerated.

I don't know about Dylan Evans but in the past I've usually found that the people who announce the death of 'community' in Jeremiah-like fashion almost always live in London.

We feel badly for you living down there in the big smoke, but don't take it out on the rest of us.

And you shouldn't knock the anonymity of the fractured community so much. Up here, community is alive and well - and it can be a real drag sometimes...
