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.
