The rail, maritime, nurses, border guards, vehicle drivers and transport unions of UK strikes, after unions rejected the pay offers and working conditions.

Labor unrest has increased recently due to rising food and energy prices pushing inflation, and greedy employer’s pay offers failed to keep pace with the increasing cost of living.

Working class must worship ruling elite’s united colors of bigotry or unionize to revolt against the conservative overlords? Numerous commentators had noted how even marriage referendums were influenced by FAANG. It’s one of the curious trends of recent years that big business, once considered the enemy of ‘the Left’, is now its greatest proponent; or at least the dominant strain of Leftism, social justice, liberalism.

Silicon Valley is the most extreme example of this, an industry that is young, dynamic and socially liberal; but elsewhere most politically interested billionaires in the West tend to be more liberal than their population, whether it’s Soros Gates or SpaceX Adani funding various social justice causes or other Democracy supporting moguls and gangs.

In contrast, with exception of a few, most billionaires in Muslim world seem to be conservative; this may be one cause of the growing moral chasm between west and the rest.

One of the key reasons behind this is what is often called the conservative dilemma; that is, economic liberalism as favoured by conservatives tends to drastically change society and uproot all the things conservatives hold dear. Often this is quite positive, such as in the way that the free market tends to break down prejudices by encouraging people to trade, and because bigotry is unprofitable. But political activism by billionaire corporations or technocrats seems to be rather different altogether, and a recent socialist sounding capital phenomenon.
