La démocratie c’est aussi ça: quand les inégalités étouffent la majorité, la majorité réplique en poussant au pouvoir des candidats de plus en plus extrêmes et anti-système. J’imagine que je ferais la même chose si j’étais à leur place, quelque soit le prix à payer en les portant à la plus haute fonction. Adieu siècle des lumières, nous rentrons dans l’age de l’obscurantisme.

“Welcome to what The Guardian commentator Jonathan Freedland recently called “the new age of endarkenment.”

“Two nations invisible to each other.”

“The mood of de-subordination has fueled left-wing insurgencies: Syriza in Greece, Podemos in Spain, Corbynism in Britain and, of course, Bernie Sanders’s “political revolution” in America. But it has also fueled the right-wing nationalist movements of Donald J. Trump, Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen (in the United States, Britain and France, respectively). Once loosed, the negative energies of de-subordination can be diverted into the ugliest channels: racism, anti-Semitism, conspiracism and misogyny.”

“Without a return to an economics of the common good — not some impossible utopia, but what the 17th-century philosopher Thomas Hobbes called “commodious living” — anger will continue to express itself as hate.”
