Britons who voted to leave the European Union did so for all sorts of reasons: immigration fears, English nationalism, economic and cultural nostalgia, post-recession funk, and so on. But many "Leave" voters are people who think life in Britain is getting worse year after year. They are highly skeptical of modern global capitalism with its disruption, dislocation, and "creative destruction."
But did they actually end up voting for lots more of the very globalized capitalism they seem to loathe?
Many conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic seem to think so.
William F. Buckley famously wrote in National Review's founding manifesto that "a conservative is someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop."
I've never been overly fond of this quote, despite it being one of the most famous quips in modern political history. It concedes too much to the progressive worldview that history has a direction, and that everything can fit into a narrative of "Progress" and "Regress." But I've reconsidered since the Brexit result shook the political and economic worlds late last week.
It's been less than a week since British voters declared their desire to part ways with the European Union. But reports of "buyers' remorse" from both prominent and everyday Leave voters have already made headlines.
A petition calling for a second referendum has gathered over 3.5 million signatures. One poll found 7.1 percent of pro-Brexit voters expressed regret over their decision; in fact 54 percent of "Leave" voters had expected to lose.
Which raises the question: Are there really, as John Oliver put it, "no f---ing do-overs?" Or could Britain rethink this?
Well, as Labour Party member and Member of Parliament David Lammy noted, "the referendum was was an advisory, non-binding referendum." To actually go through with the Brexit, Parliament must dissolve a number of national laws binding Britain to the EU and it must invoke Article 50 — the piece of EU legislation that kickstarts the separation process.
