You could be right - it happened to a small extent in uk after 2010, and in the us after sanders/trump, but i'm not seeing it happen under johnson so much, so i'm not sure - i think the anti-elite elite's strategy is working better now. Rather than creating a better backlash (which will probably just be subsumed by pussy hats again anyway), i suspect it will carry on the trend of normalising far right policies at home, ratcheting the overton window further rightwards.
Maybe it's just as i've got older i haven't got the nerve for accelerationism - i find it harder to wish for immediate destruction/suffering in the hope it will make things better later. I'm probably wrong as usual.
