“Don’t despair.

We may be living through an attempted rightwing revolution, but its foundations are rotten. There may be a counter-revolution, as there is after every revolution, and it will be built on much firmer ground.

The charlatans may be in control in both Britain and the US, but their time is limited.

Their programmes are self-defeating and destructive and they do not speak to the dynamic and increasingly ascendant forces in both our societies.”
