The third group of Great Disruptors is Sinn Féin. Their Utopia is, of course, a United Ireland. They ostensibly oppose a no-deal Brexit, and indeed Brexit itself. But beneath this opposition lies the belief that the worse Brexit is, the quicker we will have a Border poll and the more likely it is that Protestants in Northern Ireland will swim for the green lifeboat to avoid going down with the British ship. Alongside the disaster capitalism of Johnson's faction and the disaster socialism of Corbyn's, there is this disaster nationalism. It does not deny that no-deal would be awful - it welcomes this awfulness as the Great Disruption that completes the Irish national revolution.
Only one of these three visions of the Great Disruption has power - the hard right version... its proponents are doing what revolutionaries are supposed to do: seize power and wield it ruthlessly. Both the group around Corbyn and Sinn Féin imagine that you can shape history by just letting things fall apart and then moving in to build something new with the rubble.
"Eyes on the prize with a clear mind!" should be the slogan of the day but it's not happening with the urgency that is necessary. I don't think you can fault the LibDems/Greens or whatnot for splitting the Remain camp - they're just soaking up what is no longer sticking to Labour. In the back of my mind I'm still rooting for Corbyn to take charge, unite the Remain parties and fuck up the Tories. Because that's the only way to survive. Trying to straddle the divide Labour style is not working, neither politically nor practically. Attempting a split like that is just bad for your balls. And apparently also bad for your brain.
Schengen is toast!

Keep your Eyes on the Prize
I'm sure such policies represent disasters for the bankster classes, but...fuck em.
