This transformation of what it means to be a citizen needs more detail. How do we move away from the paradigm that the answer to the question, “What is this worth”, has to be expressed as a sum of money?
I supported Jeremy Corbyn from day one of his being on the ballot for Labour leader because of the widening of the debate beyond money. I am a lot older than Corbyn so maybe there is some deep memory of the post-WW2 years. I voted to remain in the EU not just because of the trade arrangement but because of that sense of shared culture and hope for solidarity of the 500 million people. I remember going to a conference in Greece 20 years ago and the delight in the thought that “this is part of my EU”. It’s good to know that I am not alone.
