Not sure if this is topic worthy but I couldn’t figure out where else to put it. I guess whats has struck me is:
In 2016 both the UK and USA voted for the triumph over the nation state over supra national institutions ie: “America First” & “Brexit”
in 2018 companies in the UK and USA without question changed the way they do business to comply with GDPR.
I haven’t seen a peep from the right or left about this being a political issue. I just find it odd, the default acceptance of EU law having primacy over the laws of the UK or USA.
For the record I think GDPR is a good thing, I think Brexit and Trump were and are terrible mistakes. But thats kind of irrelevant to the larger issue of accepting EU laws without question. Anyone else find this interesting? Or am I projecting something silly?
