Like all totalitarian movements, they seek to build a ”new man” upon the existing order that they’re destroying.
And they do not roll over easily.
Most importantly, “the New European Person”—multicultural, ultra-tolerant, genderless—has joined “the New Soviet Man” on the ash heap of history.
The anti-brexit conspiracy
The outcome of the United Kingdom’s EU referendum on June 23 stunned the London-based elite class. It laid bare the deep chasm between Britain’s political and media machine and the alienated, angry and disillusioned majority of “left-behind” citizens. Thanks to David Cameron’s miscalculation, hoi polloi used the opportunity to express their abiding dislike not only of the European Union and all its works, but also of the postnational, metropolitan elite class which dominates the political process and media discourse in Britain (as it does in every major Western country). That class was overwhelmingly pro-EU, not least because close to a million of its members have cottages in Languedoc, villas in Umbria etc. The vote can be seen as a plebiscite on the political system per se.
The elite class does not accept defeat, however, because it subscribes to the Bolshevik principle that the march of progressive humanity—of which it is the avant-garde—cannot be stopped by a mere exercise in “democracy.” Former Prime Minister Tony, a posthuman Briton par excellence, thus moans that the 48 per cent who voted to remain feel “disenfranchised.” He and his ilk all across the political spectrum are absolutely livid that yobs, racists and semiliterates from crappy northern towns have dared defy their wisdom, and horrified by the fact (that idiot Cameron!) that the Untermensch scum were given an opportunity to do so in the first place. That mistake must be rectified.
Of course the cognoscenti all think that the referendum should be overturned because those who voted to leave were too stupid to know what they were doing, and they are saying so, but that does not make the problem go away. They are therefore plotting a complex legal and constitutional stratagem. They are pressing members of Parliament—three-fourths of them in favor of staying in the EU—to simply ignore the referendum result and keep Britain in Merkel’s lager because (they allege) H.M. Government does not have the right to start the exit process by invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
