Globalism has failed: Why Millennials should thank Boomers for Brexit

Faith GoldyArchive

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.

No doubt the “remainers” knew that to stay within the European Economic Union would benefit them financially and socially. After all, that was the purpose of the EU — to benefit all members.

But what accounts for the low turnout in actually voting by younger people? Did they not see the disaster that they would face?

Millenials are the ones that actually have to deal with the consequences of Brexit. The remain vote was stronger with younger people, with better educated, with more economically successful people and the strongest pro-Brexit vote was with the very old, the uneducated, and the poor. Who has to deal with the consequences? Not the “boomers”, that’s for sure; half of the pro-Brexit voter will be dead before any real consequences are felt. Goldy, similarly, has no stake in this, which is why she finds it so easy to support the pro-Brexit talking points.

The Millenials/successful people were right. They actually understand the implications of what happened, instead of voting, purely on emotion based on some vague paranoia about immigrants.

I’m a boomer . Well put Faith but will the average millennial understand your monologue?

Pretty simple Jay, Millenials are self interested and cliquish to a fault and totally dumbed down politically – the up side for globalists and sundry other cultural marxist experimenters is they are also the most conformist gen yet.

If they missed their cue to make a generation statement with the Brexit vote it’s because it wasn’t trending on facebook or there was a “must see” vanity culture event at the same time – it’s about priorities and Millenials have no priority beyond vanity trends. I guess casting a Brexit vote just wasn’t sexy enough to be a gen Y priority.

The stunning thing about Millennials in the referendum is the low voter turn-out. I do not know the exact figure but it less than half the turn-out of middle aged citizens. This same 18 to 24 year old age category that voted overwhelmingly to remain in the European Union show no regret that they did not bother to vote.

In Canada, too, people who are now senior citizens will get out to vote, even if they have to drag their walkers and canes through the snow, while the young set cannot be bothered.

Strange wording by Faith Goldy when she says that the elders “understand something that has been beaten out their youth’s psyche: the concept of the individual.”

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.

Millennials will only stay brainwashed until they get beaten up enough by the system they’re defending.

Very good reporting about the effects of socialist indoctrination.
