From my distant vantage point, it seems my homeland is facing an overdue insurrection, and the government & elite establishment (big business & the 1%) are completely in the wrong. But it's going to get very ugly, and I can only despair for all the good folks there.
The powerful in the current system promote racism and other isms because to do otherwise would be to admit that their power is unjustified by their virtue. Which, of course, it isn't. This won't be a win-win situation for those people. This will be an overdue (& sadly, brutal) "adjustment". I'm reminded of the saying "for those accustomed to privilege, equity looks like oppression".
