"[Scruton] uses it to describe the attitude of a person who repudiates home – that is, people’s need for home and for their inherited way of life. It denotes contempt or disdain for the common man and our national culture. It is to be found in the universities and the channels of elite communication ‘and has been a force in politics out of all proportion to its place in the ordinary citizen’s heart’.
It is this attitude which leads elites to designate natural concerns and life experiences as xenophobic or racist."The ever sinister Heseltine gets a mention and so too Adonis "Oikophobe-of-the-week"! hehehe
If indeed you need convincing about the book, the review on Amazon is enough (for me at least!): "While everyone else panics and reacts, Scruton thinks. And produces answers." Douglas Murray.
Some key phrases are repeated (from the aforementioned 'England And The Need For Nations' and in speeches: e.g. in Belgium almost 12 years ago [yes, a perusal would also be well worth your time]: "Roger Scruton on Immigration, Multiculturalism and the Need to Defend the Nation State") but important nonetheless: "Oikophobia is a stage through which the adolescent mind all but inevitably passes. But it is also a stage in which we can become arrested." The lefty luvvies and IYIs that is.
