@djsheilab: Ha! Funny/sad anecdote about the “One Flag” thing: While I’m American born my parents were immigrants. And when I went to summer camp I was treated like an “immigrant” because of that. Anyway, we had a field trip to the United Nations and everyone got flags from the gift shop. I got a United Nations flag and everyone else got a U.S. flag. I got bullied and into minor fights the whole bus ride back to Brooklyn. Fin! Murica!

And may I respectfully submit that maybe Brexit was NOT primarily about "nationalism" or "isolationism", or "xenophobic" immigration issues, rather a rejection of a failed experiment in"Globalization" that was economically disastrous and costing the citizens of member nations too much of their sovereignty and rights to democratic and economic self-determination. The EU: OK in theory, worth a try, but a failure for everyone except the big central banks. History may show that England is leading the way in an inevitable exodus of EU member nations. For reals.

modchick65 - I've also looked into emigrating to Australia & Canada (even though the latter is COLD), and they don't really want too many Americans either....but at least they're somewhat more welcoming than UK/W.Europe

@P-90: Blah, blah… This is not a good thing. History will prove that since it has historically been the case.

Economic disparity has more to do with the crazy fear of taking the rich if you ask me. And the U.K. leaving the E.U. doesn’t change the fact that Asia is the world’s “factory” nowadays thus disenfranchising the working class all over the world.

@P-90, let's hope you're right...
  Fri. 6/24/16 3:40pm Davey Croquet:

And with respect, P-90, that is absolute nonsense. Brexit was the most xenophobic and racist political campaign in British political history, by some distance. An MP was assassinated and the most hateful opinions I've eve heard in public life were voiced every day. I live in the North of England, trust me, this is a place of great divisions.

@Davey C: The CAMPAIGNS run by some entities to raise support for Brexit were absolutely reprehensible for their racist, rabble-rousing tactics. But Britain getting free of the EU is a step in the right direction in the end, regardless of the ugliness of some of the debate about the vote. They're shitting bricks in Brussels already about possibly imminent similar moves by France and Spain, encouraged by Britain's departure. The EU is a ultimately a totalitarian movement, and most Europeans, in the end, are really uncomfortable with that sort of thing. Like, really suspicious and unwilling to submit, deep down.

@Cecile: The "Myra" book is brilliant, funny, worth reading. The movie, even "unbutchered", is a really bizarre attempt by a big Hollywood studio to make what we would now just call an "indie"-type unconventional film. And they had no idea how to do it .

He's describing Taoist inner energy techniques using broken Japanese-English through various Usenet posts. Complete with numerous replies from confused people going "Dude WTF?!?!?!?!" It's easily the most bizarre book I've ever seen published.
