They all lost.

Every last one of ‘em.

In elections worldwide, culminating with undisputed reality-show champion Donald Trump’s victory in America’s Presidential reality show, the old guard was defeated.

From Brexit to Trump, to populist movements sweeping across Europe, the worldwide hunger to overthrow the status quo scored resounding victories.

It’ll come not only in the reformist, protest sense, but in the creation of new art, technology, social awareness and cultural movements that embrace the need to throw out everything they’ve been taught.
