Headline: 2019: the year of street protest
Sub-headline: Mass demonstrations around the globe show no sign of fizzling out
Call this an Opinion Writer’s jejune pastiche of History, that comes to this lackluster conclusion:
Above all, as the last 12 months have demonstrated, social unrest is now repeatedly breaking out in unexpected places, for unanticipated reasons.
Its ‘as if’ , Mr. Rachman’s hallowed ‘Post War Liberal Order’ and its various iterations, positive and negative, can’t protect ‘us’ from the dangers of an inherent human anarchy? This, an extemporizing on the themes of Herbert Spencer? Or, have I gone to far in providing an explanatory frame, for the intellectual sloth, that is the stock and trade of this Opinion Writer?
