Someone Interfered In The UK Election, And It Wasn’t Russia, by Caitlin Johnstone

Caitlin Johnstone does great work exposing and commenting upon the depredations of government. However, her sympathies are apparently with the leftists and socialists, which means either that she believes in still more government, or perhaps governments stocked with the “right” people.
