There’s a great interview in Spiked on the yellow vest revolt:
It is really difficult to oppose the hipsters when they say they care about the poor and about minorities. But actually, they are very much complicit in relegating the working classes to the sidelines. Not only do they benefit enormously from the globalised economy, but they have also produced a dominant cultural discourse which ostracises working-class people.
For me this is the worst part about the fluid elites. Not only do they want to rob you of all political and economic power, they need to use you to assert their (absolutely imaginary) moral superiority. All they do on TV, on social media, on blogs, in newspapers is constantly congratulate themselves on how moral they are and how superior to the racist-sexist-murderous hoi polloi.
Do read the hole interview. It’s good.
