Today's Guardian article about the 6 January insurrectionists - "middle-class and middle-aged ... no known links with militant groups ... business owners or with white-collar jobs ... CEOs, shop owners, doctors, lawyers, IT specialists, and accountants” - these seem like protagonists of "Radicalized" by @pluralistic, but mobilised by other perceived grievances.

@pluralistic @robertfromont I hope that the good people who are presently siding with the establishment realise soon that said establishment has simply learned to re-frame the terrible and selfish things they want in words that sound nice.

The same guy who runs the Washington post runs a company that literally hired Pinkerton to union bust. That isn't a coincidence.
