Sir Roger Scruton is not just one of England’s leading conservative intellectuals, he is the leading conservative intellectual in England. In the video below he not only explains the political and cultural reasons for Brexit – he was a proponent of the Leave side – but gives some insight into the political conflict presently overtaking the West: Whether the people shall remain sovereign through their elected representatives or whether they shall be governed like serfs by an unaccountable transnational elite class of self-styled experts.
H/T Steve Hayward at Powerline for pointing out this excellent video.
Sir Roger is one of the voices who not only understands but can clearly explain the choice in front of the West – whether we shall forsake our heritage of self-government in favor of the Left’s false promise to immanentize the eschaton or whether the people will reassert their natural rights and rebuild the institutions that protect them.
