Loss of authority is capitalist nonsense…

Mick Hall’s been a long time contributor to Slugger. About six months ago he set up his own blog, and has been merrily (often not so merrily) blogging his own view of the world from the left. Yesterday, he wrote that the demise of societal authority, if it is true at all, is a result of the dominance of Capital over Labour, and the endless grind of ‘getting and spending’. Think previously placid but low earning Dublin bus drivers letting rip at the most trivial communication gap between him and the Spanish migrant worker.

Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
