"The Authentocrats" declare to the be the recent voice of good judgment that talk for the typical guy and girl; right-wing, conventional and unsafe, Joe Kennedy argues that they're every thing yet what they purport to be.

In modern Britain, much has been acknowledged approximately what it's that “real humans” wish politically. Forgotten via elites and in poor health of globalisation, so the tale is going, they call for patriotism, admire for the army, assurances on defence, and controls on immigration. In attempting to meet those meant needs, politicians try to look common, salt-of-the-earth, authentic. 

Authentocrats examines the functionality of this “authenticity” in a centrist politics which, mockingly, frequently defines itself as cosmopolitan, technocratic and against populism. Casting a uncertain eye over – among different issues – latter-day James Bond motion pictures, modern nature writing and stand-up comedy, Authentocrats suggests that the earlier we will be able to holiday with the sententiousness of a skewed notion of authenticity in aesthetics and politics the better.
