On the French yellow vest movement & similar movements

This interesting article goes into some causes, but admits to not understand the movement.

I think there's a reason for yellow vests & such: Disorientation. Unclear road ahead, imaginations run on fumes. Society hasn't integrated the power of the Internet; it helped wipe out the old French parties. Monetary policy adds to our present confusion. Old extreme left/right baggage floats up.

The road ahead must bring clarity to a computerized & networked world. Now its effect is centrifugal & ppl trip on fear or hubris. I hope blockchains can help, bring clarity to what money is, & coordinate people to act politically. For the latter digital identities is important.
