[Some much needed perspective.] Jacobin: Branko Marcetic: Meghan Markle Can’t Save the World

Mr Marcetic is right, Meghan Markle can’t save the world. She’s not there to save the world. The royal family are there to distract us. They are the public face of an economic system that allows trillions of dollars to be hidden in tax havens. While we are praising these “celebrity humanitarians” we’re not pursuing the morally bankrupt. While we’re fed on a diet of baby food we’re too weak to take action. Real power is not with the throne, real power hides behind it.
