Welcome to the age of anger | Pankaj Mishra | Politics | The Guardian

Such breast-beating amounts to a truly irrational demand: that the present abolish itself, making way for a return to the past. Ideally, to the time when paternalistic white liberals occupied the vital centre, little disturbed by the needs and desires of history’s forgotten, humiliated and silenced people.

A good and thought-provoking read.
