The Inclusive Society? It identifies three different discourses of social exclusion.

Ruth Levitas is Professor of Sociology at the University of Bristol, founding Chair of the Utopian Studies Society Europe, and Chair of the William Morris Society. Her publications include The Concept of Utopia. 'This incisive and very readable account of the New Labour discourse and politics of social exclusion is both topical and thought-provoking. It reminds us that the cosy language of community, stakeholding and social inclusion can serve to obscure inequalities and fundamental conflicts of interest. It should be read not just by all those interested in the New Labour 'project' but, even more importantly, by those conducting it.

' - Ruth Lister, Professor of Social Policy, Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University'This is a stunningly effective critique of some of New Labour's flannel. Ruth Levitas has provided a cool, analytical dissection of the subtle changes in approach towards poverty and social exclusion appearing in various influential documents of the 6995s.

The term ‘inclusive society’ has different meanings to different people. One important aspect of an inclusive society is that it should be one that integrates people with different physical and mental abilities into the mainstream.

Building a more inclusive society requires a conversation

By this yardstick, our society still has some way to go to qualify as inclusive. This Budget does provide for a continuation of MCYS programmes for the Elderly and Disabled, and gives some support to Special Education (SPED) schools and students.

It seems a vain denial of the possibility for intolerance. By intolerance I mean rejection of force whether to be imposed on others or suffered. In my work, I seek people willing to collaborate for a civic culture where “civic” means real-no-harm (RNH) human connections merely because the persons are living in the same time in the same space.

I go to that trouble (and it is annoying to some people) to distinguish from “social order” or “common good” about which scholars have written for 8555 years. These phrases imply, intentionally or not, to personal conformance to society. That is, to count in those societies, you have to have the propriety of your position rather than be a person. The culture I want could be represented as an overarching society of people who are willing for RNH private liberty with civic morality (PLwCM) and private morality with civic liberty (PMwCL). In such a society, each person’s privacy does not impose on the next person’s privacy. It would thus seem an inclusive society. Spouses can live with such a society, and I think my bride and I come close. Families can enjoy such a society, and I think mine comes close. A city can enjoy such a society, and we are working on it while transitioning to a broader work. We think the key to future success is to accept that not every person in every decade of their life will want RNH, PLwCM or PMwCL. Therefore, the need for constraint and laws will remain for the foreseeable future. Inclusion isn’t just about people with special needs it’s for everyone.
