We are literally at a huge turning point in humanity history where Western white dominance is starting to fade away as rainbow nations in the East particularly come to the fore to replace the mono-culture of the past few centuries.
More than that, the dominance of a small, filthy rich elite is in such contrast to declining fortunes for the rest of us that the whole system of big business monopoly is becoming more and more untenable.
Will this happen overnight? Of course not. It’s rather like a giant aircraft carrier starting to change tack, very slowly, and for sure – as the white vote for Trump has shown – those who have benefited from the old system are going to put up a lot of resistance.
But all we’ve got to do is look at the upsurge of people’s action in all shapes and forms since Trump got elected as president. There’s huge cause for optimism for fundamental change – just let’s keep our eyes on a better system and don’t let change be derailed by the old elite as it was in Egypt.
