We return to this space (hallo! I yet live! my login still works!) to post two links, which, taken together, can, I believe, explain everything that’s gone wrong with the world (and more!).

The Atlantic – Brexit Right (today, June 24), by Yoni Appelbaum

These are both really good and I’m not going to quote either one because RTWTs.
