The Brexit referendum results are in and the earthquake in Britain is sending out global shockwaves.
From this observer’s perspective, Brexit happened in no small part because of the sentiment that could elect an unfit American candidate to the office of President here at home: Nationalism. Tribalism. National idolatry: “We are British!” We are Americans!”
The immediate result for Britain is the loss of more than a few Pounds. Watch the tremors in world markets, hold on to your wallet, and remember that sometimes the people get what they ask for. A lesson in advance for the November election here in the States.
