BREXIT – You say you want a revolution!

Congratulations to the people of Great Britain. For the first time in our lifetime, the majority population of an entire nation has directly and courageously confronted the establishment status quo. This is an extraordinary moment in history. It rightfully puts to shame the various sham protest movements of recent years like ‘Occupy’, ‘Slutwalk’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’.

Those ‘movements’ – manufactured as they were by media exposure, were nothing but vacuous sideshows… circuses full of clowns enjoying the sensation of rebellion by indulging in infantile histrionics – all the while risking nothing, accomplishing nothing, and ultimately proving themselves to be the face of ‘protest’ permitted by a bemused but unthreatened governing class.

In contrast, the vote to leave the European Union represents an authentic mass uprising of the people. One that conveys the unambiguous message that the era of passively submitting to being told what is good for them by their ‘betters’ is over.

In short, it is a revolutionary act. The repercussions may well be far-reaching and profound. Revolutions tend not to be easy.

But for now, let’s simply show gratitude and admiration for the example of courage and self-confidence that the people of Great Britain have provided us.

And let’s hope it catches on!
