Most people are unhappy with their country and the world, whether on the left or right. I’ve been campaigning as a rebellious youth and then critical writer all my life. I believed in the revolution a la Russell Brand until learning more about the world at university. Youth seem to think the revolution will bring a utopia where they can dance all day, a la Avatar‘s Pandora etc.
However the reality is likely to be a few days of celebration followed by years of hardship; and probably violence, especially against women; and then a new authoritarian leadership, and probably greedy corruption.
For those in the Western democracies who criticise their leaders’ corruption; as I have to my cost all my life; should know that European and white-majority countries are top of the non-corrupt leagues, and the most corrupt are those in Africa, Middle-East and Asia, according to the Global Corruption Index.
The top fifteen LEAST corrupt countries are European, plus Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The rest of the top 23 are European except for Singapore (16th), Japan and Hong Kong SAR China.
