Another Brick in the Wall – BFSG’s Thoughts on the Brexit

By now you are aware that the United Kingdom (UK) voted Thursday, June 23rd to exit the European Union (EU) and end its membership to the EU since 1975.  Voters rejected the known status quo, and Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced his resignation following the outcome.  I couldn’t help but think of the British rock band, Pink Floyd, and their song “Another Brick in the Wall (Part 2)”, a protest song against rigid schooling in general and boarding schools in the UK in particular.

“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.”

The song talks about how the kids had a personal wall around them from the rest of the world, and the teachers were just another brick in the wall.  In the case of the “Brexit”, the “leave” camp (51.9%) voiced their dissatisfaction with EU economic and immigration policies.  They wanted to take back control and not be “another brick in the wall”.
