Abstract

The past month has seen an armed insurrection at the US Capitol partly organised via the social app Parler, and an attack on hedge funds by individual traders fuelled by the discussion forum website Reddit. Scott Timcke writes that both these events were expressions of anti-system politics – the rejection of how politics and the economy are run in rich countries like the US.
