We live in a world where you can't perform an irreversible action on a computing device without first confirming that you understand the consequences. But you can
vote for something that you don't fully understand, which has the potential to negatively impact not just you, but the entire global economy (amongst other things).
I can almost empathize with the disenfranchised people who voted "Leave" just to watch the world burn (see https://boingboing.net/2016/06/24/brexit-a-timeline-of-the-comi.html
). But the people who woke up today bewildered that their "Leave" vote actually counted for something, and weren't really sure how that would impact them, they are a bag of assholes.
