“Progressive” concern for civil rights and globalism is a smokescreen — the “progressive” elite are not progressive at all. As Upton Sinclair famously said, the political right and left are just two wings on the same bird of prey, and THAT bird cares only for the agenda of Wall Street and the corporatist 1% who finance its campaigns. True progressives are a dying breed, the FDR Democrats who truly care about the plight of the working man and the poor. I agree that Brexit and the rise of politicians like Trump and LePen are a backlash against an economy that screws them, engineered by politicians who don’t care about them, but get clear on who those politicians really are, and aren’t. Thank you.
