I know I tend to over-statement, but the deeply respectable transatlantic commentator and actor Bonny Greer, speaking on CNN today, suggested that the world was being wrested from democratic politics by a handful of powerful gangsters, like Trump and the Saudi “King” and his murderous son, who believe that the world and its myriad peoples, were theirs to play with, to exploit, and to destroy; and that absolute power will never be snatched from their hands.
All reasonable dissent can be silenced, publicly humiliated, or killed and dismembered with impunity. Because there is no-one who can call them out, fracture the carapace of collusion and corruption they have erected, destroy their hideous engine of militarism and death, and restore justice and peace to the suffering people of the world.
I have said that I believe that the House of Saud will one day fall, and that there will a blood bath like that which overtook the Tsarist aristocracy, the storming of the Bastille, and the Great Fear insurgency that purged France of its feudal kleptocracy and installed republicanism. May that day dawn soon! If giving my own pitiable life would hasten it, I would wiilingly surrender it tomorrow.
