Momentum vs. Inertia
Laura Catriona Murray

There are many older members of Momentum — I’m in my fifties — who bring a deal of respect for Jeremy, for online communication, for OMOV etc. Most of what’s said here I agree with. And without a doubt I will be vigilant about promoting democratisation and the most reasonable rather than the loudest or most aggressive or egocentric voices. But I am worried that this article could well promote a generalisation and a young v. old which I’ve seen signs of elsewhere….an assumption that we are the enemy. We are not. Trying to appropriate status rather than deserve status through democratic processes is the enemy here.

Like what you read? Give Kate Winble a round of applause.
