Peter Goble replied to joe taylor's discussion Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Survive by Jared Diamond in the group Radical's Digest

Snap Election - Who Benefits? Russell Brand

"Russell Brand combines huge comedic energy with analytic precision in this slashing demolition of Theresa May's 'harbinger of doom' statement on the snap election.  He knows how to sock it to 'em and to us.  His guest…"

Lionel Shriver: Why the term 'populism' is dishonest

"I think Lionel Shriver makes some good points.  The tone of public discourse on Brexit is often strident, shrill, prone to baseless accusations and name-calling on both sides.  Possible post-Brexit futures are conjured up, yet no-one can…"

Peter Goble commented on joe taylor's blog post a very important report:
"I read "Perfect Storm" last night in one go.  It's very well written, most of it is easy to grasp. Even if my grasp isn't terribly strong I got the overall message.  The message is stark and compelling.  Its…"

Peter Goble replied to joe taylor's discussion Should the Banks be Reformed?
"I'm sorry, Doug, if I riled you, it was an honest but sarky attempt to get your idea of what we could do about the mess we're in.  I'm as guilty as anyone of gloomy nay-saying, and I've no idea about what might be done, and…"

Peter Goble commented on Kate Gordon's blog post NHS Civil Society Assembly mooted
"I've skim-read the proposals only, but I have a positive feeling about this Assembly as a result.  It acknowledges issues like public passivity and health inequalities.  It suggests a remit that goes beyond just medical paradigms of…"

"Yours is a noble and ambitious project, Valen (Myles) Cook and I admire your cheek!  I also like your logo, though I wonder if the other eye is closed in a sly wink :) All things considered, I'm happy to sign up and perhaps I'll…"
