The Ascendancy of Populism

Handelsblatt’s Gabor Steingart had some thoughts about how they’re handling the British exit from the European Union in Brussels where, apparently, they still don’t seem to get the whole “lower- and middle-class angst under the thumb of the ruling elite” thing.

To wit:

We shouldn’t bash the outraged electorate who brought this upon us – they are like passengers in an aircraft locked in a tailspin, panicking as the pilot slumps in the cockpit. No, they shouldn’t be allowed to take over the controls, but the pilot needs to wake up.
