The Anger of the Unprivileged Is Rising Globally

This goes nicely with the previous post.

People are waking up. They are using the information at their disposal. Do not take this information for granted.

(From Of Two Minds)

Privilege serves the same purpose–benefiting the few at the expense of the many–regardless of the system’s ideological labels.

 

The righteous disgust with the status quo that spawned the broad-based campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump is not unique to the U.S.Globally, those disenfranchised by the status quo–the unprivileged, or in Peggy Noonan’s phrase, the unprotected— are starting to express their discontent in the streets, in social media and in elections.
Why are people around the world angry? It’s obvious to everyone in the unprivileged classes and a mystery to the “we’re doing just fine here, what’s your problem?” privileged classes: The system is rigged to benefit the protected few and marginalize the unprotected many.
