Moral Entrepreneurs – Written Wednesday 16th June 2010 (Aged 35)

Moral Entrepreneurs

they have identified a, ‘social problem’,
now the rules can be devised
who is, ‘out’ and who is, ‘in’
reinforcing communities
they have identities
‘a social problem’,
now it is decided who has it and who does not
dividing and separating
allowing them to label people
and define who they are
a moral panic in which those –
who choose to can, ‘join in’,
and those who do not can reject the label
to be, ‘left outside’
enslaved as we are to the moral entrepreneurs
