The Brexit vote and the election of Trump are inept and inarticulate reactions to growing inequality. The elites of both parties and the real rulers on Wall St. can't or won't see the coming "correction." They're "killing the host" by impoverishing the consumers who buy the real products of the real economy in order to increase the parasitic extractions of bankers, investors, speculators, quants and all manner of blood sucking and life destroying leeches and cancers. Their answer to their victims of the working and lower middle classes: "Get a better job!" The precedent is: "Let them eat cake!" The outcome, if the morons we follow don't soon awaken from their folly, may well be the self destruction of the human race. If we're lucky it will merely be the elimination of the rich from the gene pool of the Planet Earth. The latter possibility would complete the job left unfinished by the French Revolution of the late 18th century.

"The most orderly modern form of 'taking power for themselves' occurred in 2016 - the electoral rebellion against the Clintonist-Obamist neoliberal rulers of the Democratic Party by people supporting Bernie Sanders. That revolt was put down, as Party elites pulled every lever available to retain control.

"There may be one more orderly, electoral attempt in 2020 - or not; the choices may be miserable. But if it does occur, unless elites stand down, unless the next electoral rebellion is permitted to succeed, the popular response to failure won't be electoral, and could be decidedly disorderly."

Is there really ant difference in the DNC supporting HRC in the primary and the Greens voting for Jill in the General? The DNC could see the polls showing Bernie was more likely to beat trump but they supported HRC, later the Greens could see HRC was more likely to defeat Trump but voted for Jill until more people understand that defeating the GOP is what matters we are all screwed.

Is there really ant difference... have you learned anything?...

All mimsy were the boregoves! Jabberwocky!

No, there "ant" much difference. Let's go all John Wayne. Let's kill 'em all and let god sort 'em out! Then we can hide our heads in our past asses, while we dissect the shit show that was 2016 at leisure.

The ( wildcard ) descent along the brachistochrone is faster than a straight line. I proved to the astonishment of a Baby that I could change anything to anything ( under the cover of a blanket, "grabbing $50-a-night Scottie ;) tissue paper things," of course ) by first creating Nothing ( ø ) after stealing the original thing ( x - x = ø ). Nothing is the mother of Anything and Everything ( ø + y = y ) so x has "changed" to y. MAZA -- Make America Zilth Again. Magic is in the Mind. It's why dogs are funner than cats which just intently stare!

Meow-meows' constant observations freeze the state averting any possible change. Quantum law translated says: We'll NEVER get there if we keep on answering the childish question, "are we there yet?" If we were there, you would be too busy having fun to ask because you would have already known. If we weren't, the honest answer had to be, "no, no, no, no, no!" It's a kiddo's question. Just remember that we are taking the Scenic route ( "Dad is NEVER lost because HE IS a sightseer!" ) which is the quickest one and Statistically the Most comfortable, on the Average ( kiddo: put your feet in a refrigerator cooling down and your head in an oven warming up to hold "Eternity in an hour." )

Understanding transcends our mundane reality.
