Hooray for the Brits ! Last Thursday, the people of Great Britain voted to leave the dysfunctional European Union. It was a courageous vote for independence and a repudiation of the undemocractic and bureaucratic EU.
Since the birth of modern democracy about 240 years ago, democracies all over the world have been drifting toward something ugly. Low performing professional politicians and bureaucrats have insisted that they know what is best for us. But it hasn’t worked out that way and now people are angry, frustrated and tired of their arrogance. Last week the British vented their frustration on the EU, but don’t be surprised if it is repeated in America in November.
