Don't believe the hype - the Brexit is great news for the 99%

Britain's vote to exit the European Union on Friday was a tremendous victory for a 99 Percent which is desperately trying to stem the shift toward global tyranny being orchestrated by predatory elites.

The Brextit was a surrogate for Wall Street's tainted version of globalization, which seeks to reestablish the super rich as the modern equivalent of feudal lords. Much like the Keystone Pipeline before it.

Both the Keystone and globalization would be worthy endeavors if they were being executed to advance the greater good. Not so much in the context of the incessant power grabs of the Predatory 1 Percent behind them.

Someday the human race will be the beneficiaries of a global economy which serves the greater good, instead of enriching toxic elites at the expense of the rest of us. Until then, every blow to the current incarnation of globalization is a victory for decent people.

Rather than a system that supports representative democracy and social mobility via enlightened citizens.
