If the Trump election can be considered some type of revolt—the revolt of the Nationalists against the Globalists, or of downscale hollowed-out America vs upscale cosmopolitan America—then all that has happened in response is a counterattack or Counter-Revolt of the elites.

The WEF class, and their beneficiaries and foot soldiers and clients in the Cathedral of media-academia-NGOs etc have convinced themselves that no other possible principle matters but that they retake complete control of our culture and politics, that they are our rightful rulers and leaders.

Sometimes I think we're living through a Lite American version of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, sometimes I think we're living through a Lite American version of the Protestant wars of Reformation, but either way all our old ways of life (especially things like free speech, free thought, fair play, journalistic and scholarly integrity etc) are dead and gone and won't be returning anytime soon.
