Power to the People?

I was sent this video a few days back, it is interesting on a range of levels – most notably for an NI audience for how it presents the 'Glorious Revolution' of 1688–90. It falls into the tribal Catholic King v Protestant King simplification, but after that the script improves. Rethinking the hyper-local in an international context. We have had 'lockdown', maybe John Locke should be reopened. Authority v Liberty. The State v The People.
