But Hobsbawm counters that it is precisely the self-same late modern capitalism which has destroyed community and rendered destitute the bank of social trust that underwrote it.

Similarly the disembeddedness of the self, the collapse of fixed, pre-destined narratives of biography, poses both problems and possibilities of progress. The dangers of essentialism of creating a fixed identity for oneself and a demonisation of the other is the premise for a punitive and exclusionary response to diversity.
