Aleks Eror: “The West isn’t Ready for a Revolution”

“From Occupy and Bernie Sanders to the Tea Party and Donald Trump, many Americans across the political spectrum have called for a revolution. But few have tried to start one, and those who did failed miserably. There are deep-seated reasons for this, and they don’t augur poorly for the burgeoning Trump resistance. … We simply don’t want things to change desperately enough. … Most people, it seems, simply aren’t prepared to commit themselves completely to political activism. Instead, they want the system changed for them.”
