This is from the latest blog post from Jonathan Cook.
I consider it all worth reading, but in case you decide against, the final paragraph is worth some attention:
As long as we colluded in the manufactured consensus of western societies, the system operated without challenge or meaningful dissent. A deeply ideological system destroying the planet was treated as if it was natural, immutable, the summit of human progress, the end of history. Those times are over. Accidents like Corbyn will happen more frequently, as will extreme climate events and economic crises. The power structures in place to prevent such accidents will by necessity grow more ham-fisted, more belligerent, less concealed to get their way. And we might finally understand that a system designed to pacify us while a few grow rich at the expense of our children’s future and our own does not have to continue. That we can raise our voices and loudly say: “No!”
In a folorn personal conclusion it has to be said that Corbyn’s failure to properly endorse a further Brexit referendum looks quite likely to keep him out of office – and this when the majority of his own supporters are in favour of remaining.
If there is another ‘accident’ It has to be hoped it will be a Green Party one….
