The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition


Brexit was an honorable, reasonable political stance taken by a majority of the voters in the United Kingdom. It is a testament to the failures of modern politics, and the incredibly mediocre politicians that we in the West have been burdened with that they dithered and obfuscated and subverted and plain-old lied for more than three years. Had they simply obeyed the will of the people, the United Kingdom would have been done with the temporary dislocations and it would now be business as usual. But the scurrying rats in Parliament and the EU fascists would have none of that. They had to protect their sinecures and their political power, and the will of the people be damned!

Britain clinches Brexit deal, Johnson now faces parliament hurdle

Reasonable people can disagree about Brexit. But the demonization of its supporters was and is vile. The political philosophy of the nation-state is an old one...tried-and-true, and it would be a difficult philosophical argument to make that it is not the highest expression of human freedom and liberty. That so many of our elites feel just the opposite is an indictment of our educational systems and their intellects. But mostly their intellects.

Any casual observer of the human condition must arrive at the conclusion that we desire freedom and autonomy. How they fool themselves into believing that they are the philosopher kings, and only their wisdom and guidance will lift us from the muck is beyond me.

But the indications are good that the United Kingdom will be able to extract itself from most of the onerous, anti-freedom regulations and control of the EU, and that is a good start.
