"How Brexit shattered progressives' dearest illusions"
https://theweek.com/articles/632380/how-brexit-shattered-progressives-dearest-illusions
"A faith has been shaken, illusions shattered, pieties punctured. This is what happens when a life-orienting system of belief gets smashed on the rocks of history.
[...]
It would be one thing if progressives understood their universalistic moral and political convictions to constitute one legitimate partisan position among many. But they don't understand them in this way. They believe not only that their views deserve to prevail in the fullness of time, but also that they are bound to prevail."
