This eerie & beautiful article spells out both London’s city magic and the populist Brexit resentment that’s currently challenging London’s city values.

Of course, the reactionaries will actually have to undo the benefits of urban life….

“London is still busy, the Tube is still packed and the pubs are still full. But it is a weird moment. The certainties that sustained a great city are no longer certain. …”

…if they want to prove that their politics are a viable doctrine for egalitarian success rather than a recipe for failure and disillusionment.

The fact is, history has exposed this sort of reactionary appeal to authenticity as an authoritarian nightmare again and again and again and  again and again and again.
