"We will get out there and we will become incredibly successful because we will be insecure again. And insecurity is fantastic." Peter Hargreaves (a billionaire who donated £3.2m to the Leave campaign).

It's a good question. I think much of the answer is "time". It has developed critical mass over the past 73 years (if you date it from the foundation of the Mount Pelerin Society in 1947)

The EU is not one thing. It is a vast and complex mix of currents and counter-currents.

There's plenty wrong with the EU, and plenty of grounds to criticise it. But they have little or nothing to do with why we left.

Brexit is the outcome of a civil war within capitalism. The stuff about foreigners and sovereignty and blue passports was just a smokescreen for some extremely determined economic interests. And we are mere collateral damage. My column:

A truly horrendous story. How groundless rumours, spread first by , then by the Russian government, helped to whitewash Bashar al-Assad's crimes against humanity and, perhaps, to drive a man to his death. Extraordinary series by :

Understood in this light, Brexit is scarcely about the UK at all.

You and I - we're just caught in the crossfire as the two main varieties of capitalism struggle for supremacy. This - not sovereignty, not xenophobia, not culture - is what Brexit is really about. This week's column.

People are rightly pointing out that bad stuff really does happen. So I should be clearer about what I mean by a conspiracy theory. One part of the definition is that the claims being peddled are either impossible or have already been debunked.

Quite aside from the public harm they do, conspiracy theories are a tragedy for those who succumb to them. They reduce the fascinating complexities of the world to crashing simplicities, impoverishing people's intellectual and emotional lives.

Reading some of the responses to yesterday's thread, I'm reminded that there's no limit to the nonsense people can be induced to believe. Humans seem to have a weakness that makes us highly susceptible to charlatans.
