Terrorism, individual or state terrorism, financial terrorism, austerity, racism, wars, social dislocation and marginalization, imperialist reality (mainly Western 'invasions/bombings'), and imperialist nostalgia (e.g. Hilary Benn), the Brexit vote, etc... are all manifestations of a general global crisis of a system, a consensus defended by the liberals, the conservatives and the mainstream left, prolongued by the general passivity and indifference of the people, who accept the existing power structure and power relations and, occasionally, express themselves within those same frameworks of power through the voting process, believing in "democracy". So they vote for this or that criminal party again although they had seen/experienced its criminal policies at home and abroad.
Most of the time, people in general accept killing, destroying countries, plunder of public assests, the unprecendented level of inequality, the wealthy getting wealthier, the control of the big corporations on their lives, the destruction of the environment... There are also some tools which keep the general public passive or diverted: long-working hours, fear and insecurity, precarious jobs, football, floods of new commodities (consumerism), myths ("greatest nation on earth"), "extremists" (homegrown and foreign) who are against "our way of life", capitalist freedom and democracy, championing the middle class by liberals and non-liberals, mediocre TV programmes and movies, bestsellers, referendums...
Only when their narrow and conseravtive interests are hurt, people, or a significant number of them, express their dissatifaction or rejection when the opportunity arises.
