A movie made by the now victorious Brexit proponents in Britain. It is interesting how largely uniform the elite reaction around the world has been to Brexit: dismayed disbelief that such a thing could have come to pass. A transnational elite has been developing for the last fifty years that have little loyalty to their purported nations. Their loyalty is to one another and to producing a world where people like them pull the strings and the rest of us dance to their tunes. To say that such an arrangement is anti-democratic is to understate the case. They envision a world where concepts like democracy and national sovereignty have no meaning. Anything that advances their agenda of ever increasing centralization and control is good. Thus the hysteria over global warming is good because it fosters transnational authorities and the removal of power from elected officials in nations to faceless international bureaucrats, subject to no laws except the
edicts regulations they wish to impose.
The ever prescient CS Lewis saw this coming when he explained his vision of Hell:
“I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of “Admin.” The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid “dens of crime” that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.”
As we approach July 4, I dedicate myself to fighting against this ominous trend in the world, that is antithetical to everything that the Founding Fathers stood for and fought for. Brexit was a victory in a war that most of us did not realize was going on. We do now.
