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."
