Here is an interesting article by Jonathan Haidt synthesizing sociology,
moral psychology and other approaches into an interesting picture of why
we are currently seeing a big rise in "raise the drawbridge"
In the US the gay marriage and trans bathroom brouhaha also fits this
model. Basically, it is about a reaction to a normative threat.
The essay has some interesting suggestions for tagging down the debate,
basically calling for a reframing of multiculturalism.
