Globalism has failed: Why Millennials should thank Boomers for Brexit

Faith GoldyRebel Host
 

Globalism is a failed experiment, but Millennials are too darn brainwashed to see that. A staggering 75 per cent of people aged 18 to 24 voted to “remain” in the recent Brexit referendum.

Since then, painfully irritating declarations, and whiny memes have littered my social media threads by folks in that age very cohort, blaming baby-boomers for their supposedly sad state.

Tonight, I tell you why millennials should be thanking boomers, even looking up to those they demonize. Lucky for Europe, boomers understand something that has been beaten out their youth's psyche: the concept of the individual.

Then, InfoWars.com's Paul Joseph Watson joins me to talk about a post-Brexit Britain and the justified war against globalism.

Plus: We've got your weekly Quote of Honour!

“If your not a liberal at 20 you have no heart. If your not a conservative by 40 you have no brain.” Winston Churchill. Seems Ron is on the losing side but still thinks “people are smarter than that”. What he thought “wouldn’t happen” happened. So he runs to insults like “retarded, bashing and sleazy” to make a losers “argument” against conservatives. I’m proud of Britain for saying no to being ruled by a global left government rather than their own elected officials. Great show Goldy!

There was a lot of brilliance in that show.

Ron, most liberals grow up to become conservatives. Time to put down the soother. "

Actually, this phenomenon is actually more a matter of people staying the same, and society changing around them. What were “liberal” views in 1975 are considered quite anachronistically conservative now. People’s beliefs tend to remain fairly constant over their lives – in fact, there is evidence they actually become slighlty more liberal as they age, although more slowly than society in general. This is particularly those with higher education levels and/or careers that required constant adaptation, which is why modern conservatives are so overwhelmingly blue collar.

i wish every Canadians from 16-25 had to watch this show Faith. Guess all I can do is try to get the 3 that I have, 16, 21 & 25 yr olds to sit down and watch without their attention being pulled to their cellphones. only 1 voted the way I did in Federal election & the 16yr cant vote yet so I have till next election to get her on right track. School has a lot of BAD influence.

The fact is globalism is here to stay and that is that. The extreme right can whine all they want and it won’t change. Watch how Brexit hurts Britain. Retarded conservatives want to turn back the clock and use every excuse to get their way, but it won’t work. The world and people are smarter than that. The Islam bashing in here is another sleazy attempt to change minds. Won’t happen.

Globalism is supposed to be about economic reform, not political homogenization. This is the major fault of the EU: The Left took the EU hostage, and imposed a crappy version of socialism. Thank God globalism is falling apart. Fortunately, boomers managed to push back globalization in the U.K. out of EU. Other western countries must follow suit.

Great show Faith.

I have to agree that the leave side has to be extra vigilant now, this is where the other side turns to their principal argument, yelling, accusing, fear mongering and on and on.

If they want to be part of the EU so badly, why don’t they simply move there before the gates close? It’s a win win for everyone.

Most of the Millennials have come out of a “Dumbed-down” education system that have conditioned them in the PC mindset with little understanding of Economics or the Security of having Borders and an Accountable Government.
The EU is a Failing Entity . . . you can hear the tax-sucking despots from here . . .

Sadly those millennials will then become kumbaya singing liberals in their 40s, 50s and 60s. We are so doomed. Globalization as a term has a couple meanings. I am all for globalization in the sense of true free trade. It is the political side of it I reject.

So many multiculturalist true believers, social justice warriors, black lives matter savages, blind and deaf but not dumb Islamophiles, LGBTQ-ETC. fascists, neo-Marxists, and radical feminists (and the mixture of all of these social aberrations) are millennials, and their mentors have been baby boomer leftist liberals in the mainstream media, education systems from elementary school through university, and socialist politics.

Europe needs to trade with Britain and the UK. Britain and the UK don’t just trade with Europe. The dust will settle, life will go on and the UK will have proper say in their lives again. To suggest that there are enough highly skilled jobs to go around is just plain wrong. Britain is no different from anywhere. There are as many levels of employment as there are levels of skill and to suggest that they are all highly skilled and everyone will be competing for them is not correct.
If the younger ,pampered, and more ‘educated’ feel leaving was the wrong road they can move to a European country still in the wonderful union. They are lucky they were reeled in from their youthful ignorance. It would have been the end of Britain.

“he youth which were the ones who voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU are not the more economically successful people. Check the youth unemployment in the EU. It is staggeringly high. And as to their education, that is questionable. Having a degree does not necessarily mean you are more educated, at least in common sense and real world matters … the things that really count.”

They’re separate variables. Younger people were more likely to vote to stay. More educated people of all ages were more likely to vote to stay. Wealthier people of all ages were more likely to vote to stay. Less educated, poorer, and older were more likely to vote to Brexit, but all three variables are again independent.

If you think things are tough with an education in Europe right now, try not having one. As few jobs as there are for educated Britons, there are none – literally, none – for those with no education.
Common sense and “real world matters” are a matter of experience, and if an employer has a choice between similarly common-sensical individuals who do or do not have a degree, they’ll hire the educated one (the whole idea that “common sense” is the predominant domain of the uneducated is bizarre). That’s a major source of the resentment behind Brexit (but also the resentment behind the hostility towards immigrants, and the increasing aggressive anti-intellectualism). It’s unclear how a Brexit will actually solve that as globalization is not a root cause of labour obsolescence.

Great show Faith,
That opening monologue may be the single greatest thing you have ever committed to video. How do we reach the rest of this (your) millennial cohort?

What was it that woke you up? I am Gen X and this same drivel was being hammered into me all through my formative years. Point being, this goes back a lot longer than most people even know. Can’t imagine what it must be like in the public school system these days.
commented 2016-07-08 03:48:27 -0400
It’s simple… The millennials didn’t didn’t turn out to vote because they were too busy taking “selfies”…

Everytime there’s a news report about some incident that caused injury to someone, I expect to hear millennials and their mommy’s calling for a ban on whatever was at the heart of the incident. Barbecue explode? Ban barbecues. Kid fell out the window? Ban windows. What they are is ungrown up children.
As for globalization, they aren’t even really that. They all like the idea of shopping at city farmer’s markets. Eat local is a faddy term they throw out with ease. Climate changers (& they’re always globalists) haven’t thought out the stupidity of flying apples in from Chile instead of trucking them in from an orchard 300 miles away. When everything is imported, including the plug in their kitchen sink, it just means there’s more jet fuel exhaust out there that carbon taxes don’t remove.

Well since a central government controlling all of Europe is such a good thing , i guess we should have just let the Nazis take over all of Europe.

It seems so good to praise Britain for the result of the vote. As Liza Rosie says: “There is nothing more important to any nation than its sovereignty.”

I am just sorry that the people of Britain will have to suffer so much, with the lower currency and fewer trading partners.

Still, that have had worse before. In suffering the people have strength.

There is nothing more important to any nation than its sovereignty. Without it there is no identity, no autonomy, no self determination, no country. I think that was the idea. It makes perfect sense to me that this was the top motivation for the leavers.

God bless you Faith. Paul Watson was correct stating the ingratitude the children have for the adults in making tough decisions, not for their own benefit but for future generations

Andrew mistakenly said, "The remain vote was stronger with younger people, with better educated, with more economically successful people … "

The youth which were the ones who voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU are not the more economically successful people. Check the youth unemployment in the EU. It is staggeringly high. And as to their education, that is questionable. Having a degree does not necessarily mean you are more educated, at least in common sense and real world matters … the things that really count.

Jay Kelly said, "You wonder if it is more accurate to say the contrary: that the concept of collective and societal responsibility has been lost for young people. "

The socialism indoctrinated into the youth today has nothing to do with collective and societal responsibility.
