it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction

This is an informative book, so much so that you wonder how they do get away with it; but get away with it they do. It is not about character assassinations or bringing people to book per-se; it is about 'The Establishment' and Owen Jones does a good job of exposing the inner workings of this behemoth that protects and nurtures itself at the expense of everyone else. I have no idea what can be done about it, Owen Jones offers no solution and rightly so, because I don't think there is one - if you cut off the Establishment's head another would soon grow in its place; it may be a different colour or shape and have 'Now even more chocolatey' on the wrapper, but it's the same old confection inside and elected into power by the same electorate, beguiled by the tried and trusted methods that never fail - ensuring that the 'Establishment' will continue sailing on by as everyone else flounders in its wake.
