trainers & moralistic

Quotations:

qanda_2015_ep29

Brendan O'Neill: [medieval; sphere;convent; trainer; moralistic; displacement;] Yeah, what's with all this naming and shaming. When did politics become so medieval. It's like everywhere you go someone is naming and shaming. On twitter, in the political sphere, in the media. It reminds me of being back convent school when the nuns were always shaming someone for wearing make up or trainers or whatever it was. In my mind this chasing, this moralistic witch hunt of people who do not pay enough tax, it's actually a displacement activity from talking about the economic problems that are faced across the western world.

Definitions:

trainers:
a shoe that you wear for sports or as informal clothing;

moralistic:
having or showing very fixed ideas about what is right and wrong, especially when this causes you to judge other people's behaviour.
