From what I’m reading of the Russian revolution, it seems like there was a lot of discord across society, like a box of fireworks just waiting for a spark. I imagine that’s the case in most revolutions. For me in the UK, it doesn’t feel like that is the case. The middle classes probably have a vague feeling of malaise, but anything really bad, it’s mostly happening somewhere else in the world. They’re generally OK in their bubble. Even climate change is ‘somewhere else’. No need to revolt.
