The middle class provides British society with its stability and strength. According to Deane's contentious thesis, our middle class has abstained from its responsibility to uphold societal values, and the enormously damaging collapse of our society’s norms and standards is largely a result of that abdication. The institutions of political and social governance provide a husk of functionality and mask these problems for those that do not wish to see, or do not care. To restore Britain to something resembling a substantively functioning country, the middle classes must reinstate themselves as arbiters of morality, be unafraid to judge their fellow men, and follow through with the condemnation that necessarily follows when individuals sin against common values.

"A carefully documented thesis."--David Ashton "England's Standard "

"[Deane] thinks there is still an element in the population which has traditional middle-class values, and calls on them to stand up and be counted. Well, maybe."--George Wedd "Contemporary Review "

Synopsis:

The middle class provides British society with its stability and strength. According to Alexander Deane's contentious thesis, our middle class has failed to uphold societal values, and the enormously damaging collapse of our society's norms and standards is largely a result of that abdication. The institutions of political and social governance provide a husk of functionality and mask these problems for those that do not wish to see, or do not care. To restore Britain to something resembling a substantively functioning country, the middle classes must reinstate themselves as arbiters of morality, be unafraid to judge their fellow men, and follow through with the condemnation that necessarily follows when individuals sin against common values. The author makes this appeal: I am an exile in my own country, whose centuries-old traditions have been dismantled in moments. I am an exile in my own class, which should speak but remains silent, should act but only stands still. Perhaps you feel this way too.
