My bet is there are no clear “good guys” in this equation.
Now if it were to declare independence from the European Union too that’d really be something. (That won’t be happening.)
Well France, you had a great run. I didn’t always agree with you. In fact I rarely did, but you have fantastic food and wine. Now I guess we should just look to Berl…Er …I mean...Brussels for any sort of leadership on the Continent.
We were no Le Pen fans, but what an insult from Macron.
Vive la France!
Cultural diversity can be a great thing. Cultural homogeneity can be stifling and boring. But liberty should never be sacrificed in “diversity’s” name. Ever.
FREE SPEECH. FREE SPEECH. A THOUSAND TIMES. FREE SPEECH!
Steve Job’s unrelenting genius challenged and overcame the status quo multiple times in his life. The iPhone being his last spectacular victory.
The author of this article is a bit too wedded to the “Right-Left” spectrum but it is an important story so we post it. Too often people assume that they are on the “Right” or the “Left” without really thinking what that means. Politicians take advantage of this. “Right” and “Left” are really very antiquated terms.
Free speech is not a value shared by everyone anymore. (It really was in the West for years and years on both what is called the Right and Left.) There are those who really do think now however that speech should be prosecuted,
If you think that isn’t going to have tremendous ramifications down the road you’re nuts. Heck, we’ve got plenty of ramifications right now.
Brexit was a massive win for those of us who oppose crony capitalism. It was a line in the sand, in the Channel, and Britain in the end decided to remain Britain and to tell the eurocrats to take a hike.

In the emails the Soros organization outlines how it uses international organizations to influence (and we assume overwhelm) national policy and sovereignty on immigration issues.
We at ACC are for immigration. But we are also for US sovereignty. There are many people in the world who would like to take the United States down a few pegs (as they see it) and integrate it into a more “international” legal regime. George Soros is one of these people.
Given the hits we have taken to the rule of law in this country in recent years a more “international”
In the attached article The Economist frets that the trend toward “globalism” (their word) is in jeopardy. And what the magazine or “newspaper” calls globalism is indeed being challenged. The headlong march toward transnational governments embodied in the European experiment is under attack. And for good reason. People feel disenfranchised.
The average person sees a “global order” (again The Economist’s words) which cares little for the “pedestrian” interests of the middle class. The bourgeoisie sees a rising crony class,
The job of revolutionaries is to make revolution. At least that’s what Mao and Che said. They probably didn’t think that the adage would apply to a bourgeois revolutionary like Farage. But times change. The world changes.
