The American political Parties are held together by a, tenuous glue, that is fast pulling apart.
Your Mr Luce of the Financial Times, comes close but not close enough when he says “It may be too late,” to save the elite class.
It is far, far past too late. The dissolution of the Parties as we have known them is happening in front of our eyes.
Louis XVI, when informed of uprisings in France asked an aide: “Is it a rebellion?” The aide replied;
“No, Sire, it is a REVOLUTION.
The message of both the camps of Mr Sanders and Mr Trump is:
“This is a REVOLUTION.”
REVOLUTIONS are messy and this one will be very messy. It will succeed because the elite classes in both Parties have, for too long, taken the American people for granted and ignored their wishes.
The argument line against the REVOLUTION used by your Mr Luce, that the coming REVOLUTION will upset the elite apple cart and the delicate little world it has cobbled together is hilarious and of course, the very same argument line of any entrenched power throughout history that feels threatened:
“You can’t do that, we’ve always done it our way.”
The elite classes think that since it was one way yesterday, it must be one way today and forever. Elite classes have always thought this.
They want it to be one way:
So sorry boys, now it’s the other way.

He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~

I imagine, this simultaneously must worry and excite the Silicon Valley Artificial Intelligence professionals and the various anonymous (both trademarked and unaffiliated) cyber techies of today.
We speak of the old secrets of the underworld, Egyptian Pharaohs, Kabbalah, the Illuminati, etc, etc, and focus on them as if the people breaking the codes of life aren’t currently planning on holding onto the best of all the essences of existence, if they come upon it.
I think we are far from the woods by trusting the alternatives on planet earth. But i understand what you’re saying.
The one constancy in history is that things change. Always. Kingdoms, republics, commercial titans all are swept away by TIME.
