It has been something to watch the media scramble in all of this. They are dazed and confused, and yes, liable to learn all the wrong lessons from it.

Every poll had the Remain vote up by several points prior to the vote, and I wonder if there wasn't more than a little wishful thinking and bias filtering going on with the pollsters. That could foreshadow a very similar result here in the States - although right now Hillary has a more than comfortable lead.

It's been the great failure of the political left to embrace globalization without realizing or even acknowledging its effects on the middle and lower classes. This is a clash between the utopian dreams of social progress and the colder realities of human nature. We can dream of the better world, while not seeing that greed, social stratification, and group identity would undercut it.
