Well, Brexit happened. If you don't understand why that's bad, watch this.
It's true. The British conservatives went with the Batshit. I'm terrified for my friends in the UK. This is already destabilizing the UK economy in a big way. (See also this.) I've heard that they're headed for a recession much like our 2008 recession. (That was horrible, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It took us forever to pull out of it. Even so, the US economy is fragile enough that this is going to effect us too. [shudder]) I hear this vote may not be actionable. I hope that's the case. I really do. I'm hoping that this referendum is the wake up call xenophobic, miserly conservative circles have needed, worldwide. Anti-intellectualism and nationalism does not go good directions. It simply doesn't. Please, please, please can we learn this lesson now?
