Political and media insiders and those who count themselves part of the establishment really have no idea of the levels of public anger simmering just under the surface of society, nor are they aware of why the public are angry and resentful. The fact is the ruling elites have failed catastrophically over the past fifty years, their economic models have proved hopelessly unrealistic and had created a global economy based on ever increasing government debt. The debts have become unsustainable, governments and organisations, (i.e. government agencies, NGOs and for profit businesses) are now borrowing money in order to be able to service their existing debts.
Attempts at social engineering had broken up communities and the local cultures that bind them together; the prioritisation of minorities' interests over those of the majority have caused hostility and resentment and divided society along social, economic and cultural fault lines.
Government support for technological advancement has forced society to try to assimilate change far more rapidly that communities could adapt to the changes and evolve to accommodate the far higher levels of unemployment and the vast increase in the proportion of old people society must support. The offshoring of jobs because of globalisation and the destruction of jobs through automation has exacerbated the problems by hollowing out the middle income groups that were the backbone of societies and created serious distortions in the social balance.
The arrogance of the elites and their total committment to an ideology that is a hybrid of Marxism and the paternalism of The Roman Empire's patrician caste seems to be leading us back to a medieval society, but ideology created a kind of intellectual fog so no wonder the politicians, academics, business and financial bosses and media luvvies are blind to their failure are blinded to their failure.
Some have called this ideological pottage Cultural Marxism, some say Paternalistic Liberalism (a contradiction in terms). I call it Oligarchical Collectivism after the regime od Big Brother in George Orwell's novel 1984.
The elites are so convinced of their infallibility however, they do not see their digital calendars spinning backwards to "1788", but the wealthiest and most advanced societies in the developed world are close to a similar kind of breakdown as the French Revolution kicked off.
The focus at the moment is on the USA, earlier in the year it was on the UK where in a mighty surprise that surprised nobody except the establishment, the British public voted that their country should leave the European Union, before that it had shifted from Germany where an open doors immigration policy has led to working class areas being overwhelmed by semi literate, uneducated, unskilled, unemployable third world peasants. Next it will be Austria where a nationalist candidate was robbed of the presidency by electoral fraud and where that election is now being rerun. Then Italy has a referendum coming up, ostensibly on constitutional reform but being seen as a referendum on the country's pro - EU, integrationist government. At the moment the government side looks set to lose heavily.
France has a presidential election in 2017 and nationalist Marine Le Pen currently tops the polls.
In the US election, while the media and the Democratic Party try to smear maverick republican Donald Trump with unsubstantiated allegations of immoral conduct, the establishment are desperately trying to prevent evidence of Hillary Clinton's criminal dealings with agents of foreign powers contained in daily Wikileaks data dumps being publicised widely. Hillary Clinton famously referred to her opponent's supporters as a bunch of racist, sexist, xenophobic deplorables. Hillary's deplorables are actually the most reserved, most polite, and most honest demographic in the country. They are better informed than her supporters, more self-reliant, and hold dear concepts such as free speech and personal liberty.
One of the big issues of this and the previous two US elections is gun control. The US Constitution confers the right to bear arms, the liberals hate this but cannot understand that banning guns does not stop gun crime. In Britain where private ownership of hand guns is virtually impossible, criminals still have guns. In the USA where gun ownership is commonplace, those who own guns legally are very responsible responsible, and are not the source of the violence for which the implement, and not the person, is too often blamed. Meanwhile the gangsters, drug dealers and other criminals continue to hold guns illegally and to use them in the execution of criminal acts. Hillary Clinton has said she will confiscate citizen's guns.
She has also said she will import thousands of Muslim immigrants into the country without carrying out background checks on them, in spite of there having been numerous terrorist acts carried out by Muslim extremists in the USA.
Another Clinton promise, one that she is likely to keep, is tht on taking office she will escalate the conflict in Syria by attacking Syrian government targets. As Russia has warned that it will retaliate if the USA or it's allies attack Russia's ally Syria, this would effectively be the start of a global conflict. Nobody want's war, but Hillary's supporters are so blind to the reality of this neo - con, neo fascist woman they just do not see what she is promising.
Trump's Deplorables have a fuse. It is, however, a fuse, and they have their guns.
Alt Left, on the other hand, are the Neo Fascists and Neo Neocons. It is Alt Left that thinks Free Speech means THEIR speech only they created the concept of hate speech to prevent honest discussion of the problems caused by their 'anointed minorities'. It is Alt Left that demands 'safe spaces' where 'microaggressions' are prohibited and the only ideas permitted are withing the limits of the 'pensée unique', the ultimate suppression of intellectual freedom and wants to enforce thought crime.
It is Alt Left, and its media lapdogs, The New York Times, Huff Post,The Daily Beast and so on, that is heavily into censorship of ideas that diverge from their approved ideology. It is Alt Left that champions regime change and is ratcheting up the rhetoric against Russia with calls for the USA to depose Putin and put an Alt Left puppet government in power in Moscow. It is the Alt Left that loves war, especially war by unmanned drones striking aty defenceless third world peasants. It is Alt Left that believes it has an inherent right, even an obligation, to lie and obfuscate and erase its opponents if it serves their greater purpose of creating a global authoritarian government.
Perhaps most significant is that it is Alt Left, for all their all-join-hands-and-sing-kumbaya, love and peace, touchy feely hippy bullshit which quickly resorts to violence and vandalism when confronted with people and ideas to which brainwashed Alt Left clones take exeception. The bigotry, hypocrisy and double standars of the Alt Left have never been so clearly revealed as in Hillary clinton's presidential campaign.
At the moment American society is like a capacitor, there is a charge building, and at some point it will be released into the circuitry of US life. The media and other insiders believe themselves to be immune yet print media titles are crashing right left and centre while revenue from internet advertising is dropping as ever more intrusive ads and ever more blatant privacy violations lead web uers to become more and - blind..
The arrogant and ignorant belief that the middle and low income groups are stupid and can be manipulated by biased news and disinformation campaigns results from the elites operating inside a cocoon where dissenting voices are quickly silenced.
When the capacitor releases its charge, they are going to be gobsmacked at the anger directed at them. I doubt that there will be mobs around the Guillotine to cheer as the likes of Hillary and Bill Clinton, George Soros, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Lena Duham, Brangelina, Warren Buffet, Barbra Streisand, Ellen De Generes, Magic Johnson et al lose their heads, but there will be major social changes; such people will not be deified any more and will be forced to understand their opinions are worth no more than yours or mine.
Precious few of them are anywhere near as intelligent or talented as they believe themselves to be. Additionally, they might think, or hope, their celebrity is their security, but Kim Kardiadshian has destroyed the cult of celebrity just as effectively as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have destroyed the cult of love and peace, and the 'safe space' of those who place themselves above us in society's pecking order doesn't really exist. 'The survival of favoured bloodlines through the survival of the fittest Charles Darwin called it. And most of society's guardians, whether they are law enforcement or military, are card-carrying members of the deplorables.
In the words of George Orwell: “We sleep safely in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

The Reality Of Globalism - World Trade Has Increased By Less Than 1% Annually In The Last Decade
There can be little doubt that 2016 was the year the great pushback against globalisation and the push towards an authoritarian world government (NWO) really got off the ground. Fears that the world is on the edge of rejecting globalization and a global economy, with its false promise of prosperity for all and its reality of an ever widening gap between rich and poor have dominated ...
Obama Has been An Inspirational President?Well He Probably Inspired More Suicides Than Any Other
Obama’s greatest achievement perhaps it to have put Donald Trump in The White House. Whether you think this is a good or bad thing depends on your political stance. This blog is neutral, our view being that Trump can’t be a worse president than any of the three that preceded him.

America Is Lost: Rigged election, Rigged Media, Rigged Candidate says Assange
To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of Julian Assange's death were greatly exaggerated. After his web feed was cut by staff at the Ecuadorian Embassy earlier this week Assange's usual stream of tweets, leaks and posts was stilled. The web, being the web, went mad with conspiracy theories but Wikileaks themselves did not comment on the wilder speculation. Well Julian is back on Hillary's case, and this time it's more personal than ever.
The Birth Of Cultural Marxism
Ever wondered when and where the idiotic pseudo -philosophies of hippys and the idiotic and divisive politically correct dogmas of the modern left were born. The Social justice Warriors (aka 'liberals' or progressives' though they are really neither of these things but instead are moralistic authoritarians who hate free speech and personal liberty and support censorship, government control of media and criminalisation of dissent.
