Brexit —a stern rebuke to arrogant elites

June 24, 2016 Boston Globe

Steven Kinzer discusses in an op-ed how Britain’s decision to quit the European Union is in a part an expression of self-defeating insularity, but it also a stern rebuke to arrogant elites who failed to listen to ordinary citizens. He goes on to say that Europeans are angered by the way the EU’s European Commission, run by unelected bureaucrats, makes decisions, and sees a chance for the EU to change course.
