Social and economic liberalism increasingly feels as though it is hitting the buffers in contemporary life. This blog is me trying to find my bearings.
I’m interested in (among other things) the political and cultural side-effects of globalisation, the replacement of class politics by identity politics, the joy of limits, how we navigate family life in an age of radical individualism, the emerging backlash against the regressive left and the crisis in modern democracy.
In real life I divide my time between writing for Unherd (and occasionally elsewhere) and caring for my daughter. You can contact me at mary dot harrington [at] gmail dot com.
