Very well thought out all in all, but she's missing a major point: the yellow vests movement isn't about liberating the working class. It's not about achieving an egalitarian society. It's not about freedom or peace. It's anything but anti-capitalist, and it's definitely not anti-authoritarian!

The goal of the yellow vests is simply to make the life of the consumer easier. It's a way to revolt without losing ones identity as a consumer. It's the neo-liberalist version of a revolution, and that needs to be said first and foremost. Pamela clearly doesn't get that (or doesn't want to).
