Another revolution?

It's not 1688 any more, or 1776, or even 1916 or 1921. But if this is what a present-day revolution against arbitrary power looks like, sign me up. Echoes of the famous quote from the American commentator Dick Tuck. Today's ivory towered cultural √©lites lecture, punch down and 'gaslight' everyone beneath them about "privilege" - whilst every one of their own pronouncements evidences their own privilege, their own "luxury beliefs" which they espouse but have no impact upon them themselves, and their own control of social and cultural power. Imperialism and colonialism in 2024 is both cultural and ideological. Well done to the people down south who refused to comply.
