The United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union is not about trade or regulations. It's about something more fundamental: the natural right of people to form and control their government. At its core, Brexit is about democracy and self-rule. Britons wanted their government, parliament, and courts to be once again in the country.
The flow of power out of Britain and into Brussels is not some theoretical concern. The way the European Union has worked has been done in Brussels by European Parliamentarians. The Germans and the Italians, in effect, can tell the Brits what their law is, even on the objections of the Brits. So much for the consent of the governed.
The European Court of Justice is a perfect example of this corruption. In the landmark case of Marleasing SA v. La Commercial for example, the ECJ ruled that national courts must interpret national laws in a way that fits them to European directives.
Put another way, a national court wants to stretch its own parliament's will to order the European Union's will.
Is not this a problem?
Brussels says no. It claims the supremacy of a supranational authority over 28 different national authorities has made it fair, just, and beneficial for all by making no one nation's can act against the community of nations, the EU has made the European continent safer, happier, and more respecting individual rights.
The real reason Europe has remained at peace for nearly 80 years now beer at a common bar in Strasbourg. European self-ruling nations benefit from liberalized international trade and travel. Enlightened national interest in international cooperation and peace.
By taking power further.
By virtue of the free trade and cultural intermixing do not call for the abolition of self-rule and its replacement with a multinational government and further away from the governed, the "European Project" is essentially an undemocratic project.
Brexit, as we write, is in shambles.
Brexit was and remains in the process of undecorating the undemocratic project, and thus preserves the idea of a government of the people, by the people, for the people.
