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.

Keeping a Promise

As faithful readers of this blog know, I was a very reluctant, and late, supporter of Donald Trump in 2016.  I grudgingly

  1. Lip service is paid to subsidiarity all the while power is being centralized —- in each of the 50 states, within the United States, and among the States of the world.
    On all levels- religious, economic, military, political – life seems to be one big fight for control. Who is to be in charge.

  2. Very good I agree totally. For a very good analysis of Brexit check out William Briggs article: Here is an excerpt:

    “Here is the curious thing. Remain voters wanted to use Democracy to force Britain to be placed under the rule of the EU, a non-democratically elected body of rulers, regulators, and bureaucrats and an organization that could not be appealed (easily) to by ordinary democratic means. Essentially, then, Remains wanted to use majority rule to cause a usurpation of The People and install an complete authoritative government—its completeness perhaps one that eventuated not immediately but in the near future—a government that would bar The People from electing to escape their bonds.”

  3. The video whch Kennybhoy posted is telling. These eiltists do NOT want the people deciding anything that is substantive. What will they do if in the US the people vote into office Donald Trump instead of Hillary Clinton, a fixture of the establishment which they have created? I am am no Trump supporter, but frankly it would please me no end to hear these elitists howl with dispair. To hades with them. To hades with every single one of them.

  4. ” 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.”

    Indeed.
    And the language they use is Political Correctness – to pull the dissenters into line an shame those who disagree with them.
    But this has happened before – I see a remarkable equation to the American War of Independence, the collapse of the Soviet Union – perhaps others.

  5. You are 100% correct in all of that. A wonderful piece. Including your mention of the elites’ strange passion for global warming; the only possible vehicle through which elites and their bureaucratic machine can transcend national lines and assert global control over everything. In the name of saving the planet and life itself, (of course).

    We are reverting back to a feudal system in which there are but two classes of people: peasants and lords. The peasants exist for two purposes. To feed the lords and make them stuff. And to exist ,outside the walls, as a first line of defense against possible invasion by the barbarians.

    Democracy, IMO, is dead. Ideological systems like socialism and communism are passé. What explains things best, I think, is a global, world-wide feudal state. And Brexit was an irritating reminder to the lords that the peasants exist, and might not be as happy as once thought.

  6. Absolutely incredible! Astonishing really. One hour and eleven minutes and not a word, a mention of the immigration crisis? How can they talk about prosperity? About a great future? I was shocked! The first half I found very interesting and eye-opening about the level of control the EU maintains without elected officials or any input from the public really, except money! The concept of control, democracy, self-determination is great! I’m all aboard! I have to say also that just about everyone speaking, except for the Swiss guys, were real Brits. When I visited London for the first time about 10 yrs ago I was surprised and confused that I hardly met an indigenous Brit! Everyone was from somewhere else: Ireland, Poland Pakistan, India, Australia, Nigeria…The underground was run by brown skinned men- Pakis, Indians, Sri Lankans- I’m not sure but they were not native Brits. I thought the movie made a great argument for Brexit in terms of sovereignty, home rule, economy, trade, prosperity, democracy etc. But the omission of the Muslim specter in a country where the most popular boy’s name is Mohammed, a country that suffered the London bombings 7/7, had one of their soldiers beheaded on the street in London in broad daylight, another 82 yr old woman in her garden, and is now overrun, like the rest of EU, by ‘refugees’. This is the great problem in Europe, the EU, the UK and here in the US. This is the greatest threat we have ever faced. ‘Open borders’ was mentioned only once as a condition for a trade deal. Nothing more. They are in far more seriously trouble than I imagined. And not because they left the EU.

  7. Gun-control? Global Warming? Political Correctness? Sexual Libertinism? (Think of Orwellian pleasure buttons to keep the masses content) It is all oriented towards global governance. Alan Keyes describes slavery as the “default condition of mankind”, and unless we start paying attention, that is where we are heading.

  8. “The ever prescient CS Lewis…”

    Indeed. Reading C S Lewis’ observations on this and other issues is indicative of how far back, of how deep down the rot in our civilization is…

  9. Kennyhboy video is very telling. Despite the experts and leaders getting just about everything wrong, the pro “leader” guy still thinks they should lead. Well, if your “leaders” are leading you to perdition, it is time to stop following. He seems to miss that point. The issue about the pound dropping is also somewhat telling – how, exactly does it affect the average Brit vs. the currency speculators? I don’t think the Remain folks really made enough of a connection there.
