The loyalists of power

 Monbiot article ends:

Those entrusted to challenge power are the loyalists of power.

They rage against the social media and people like Russell Brand, without seeing that the popularity of alternatives is a response to their own failures:

  • their failure to expose the claims of the haut monde,
  • their failure to enlist a diversity of opinion,
  • their failure to permit the audience to see that another world is possible.

If even the public sector broadcasters parrot the talking points of the elite, what hope is there for informed democratic choice?
