Why Theresa May is a true heir to Richard Nixon | Aditya Chakrabortty | Opinion | The Guardian
Trump wasn’t playing politics: he was prosecuting a culture war – and a culture war is anti-politics. [...] First came her speech about how “the country is coming together”, even while her political opponents were not. Her cheerleaders were in the press the next day, baying for “Blue murder” and for her to “Crush the saboteurs”. I watched all this from the US; and in the land where Democrats are now routinely labelled “treasonous” it all sounded eerily familiar: us v them; the people v Westminster; leavers v remainers. [...] “forged a public language that promised mastery of the strange new angers, anxieties, and resentments wracking the nation”. [...] Nixon appealed to the “silent majority”. [...] “less about a traditional left-right battle and more about identity and values” [<< Rentnerrepublik]

Jeremy Rifkin: The Third Industrial Revolution - YouTube
fossil fuels // 148$/barrel of oil followed by GFC = peak globalisation based on price ceiling of 148$/barrel of oil "peak oil per capita" << affordability! THUS only renewable energy can sustain globalisation and economic growth! meaning affordable prices for long-term // Alarm bells are Unilever and P&G! // post-88 recession (definitive end of American boom years and baby boomers) and coming globalisation build on Americas purchasing power based on savings & debt (living off credit & debt [fictional economy]) till 2008 // climate change is the defining moment in our species history; extreme weather, ecological environmental disaster, mass extinction of life on planet earth possible. loosing 70% of species by 2100. there is no guarantee that WE will remain! have to be off carbon in 30 years. its down to the wire. Wall Street has no shared, long-term, economic interest in that. Corporations are no stakeholders in earth // democratisation of energy creation "Energy Internet" //
