These are jerks who do this

Thinking they are in the good old we-shall-overcome days.

From the campus left to Black Lives Matter to Occupy Wall Street to the union activists who took over the Wisconsin legislature in 2011, modern progressives are committed to protest politics: They’ll achieve their demands not democratically but by disrupting civic order and breaking norms and laws. Now these tactics have been imported to the U.S. Congress.

Brexit happened


Britain will regain its political freedom, its autonomous self-government, and its independence from an EU that is spinning out of control under the power of establishment elites, unelected and unaccountable socialist bureaucrats, and a judicial court that is increasingly making legal decisions that replace Britain’s powerful common law.

When you put it that way (and Lawrence Kudlow does), it’s sort of another Magna Carta, or at least in the spirit of same.

Works for me, especially the “establishment elites” part, in whom lies the spirit of something else entirely — experts deciding what’s best for the hoi polloi. Saying in effect, like it or lump it.

Wise words in the aftermath:

If the EU wants to prevent other countries from catching the Brexit bug, our advice is to avoid the temptation to punish the U.K. with an arduous renegotiation of terms for its re-entry into the common market.

The perception of EU high-handedness is what alienates public opinion across the Continent.

Brexit ought to be the wake-up call the EU needs to return to serving as a common market that encourages growth and competition, and not—as it has become since the late 1980s—an innovation-killing superstate obsessed with regulatory harmonization, tax hikes, green-energy dogma and anticompetitive antitrust enforcement.
