I have this friend who I’ve never met. We both like to write. We both want to make the world a better place. As a team we say the same thing in different ways. Maybe one will click better than the other. But here is what Brett Pharo had to say about Brexit. Prolly the best indicator that we’ve come a long way since that bastard, Lincoln, thought 600,000 people had to die so his precious union was preserved.
Really. What would it look like today if The South simply had become another country? To believe slavery would still be a part of their labor system is silly. Separate governments more accurately represent their constituents. Cultures don’t clash, they cooperate, yet still compete. Workers perform better when they want to earn a living than when they are forced to perform. A short glance at union shops vs private businesses across the country will make that obvious.
Anyway, here is what Brett said in his Random Thoughts From the Corner Chair column:
“Luckily, I don’t think the European Union leaders will follow the example of the leaders of the union on this side of the pond in the 1860’s. I don’t see them calling for an invasion of the UK to force them back into the union, as Lincoln did in America.”
