Brexit "“There would be an end of every thing, were the same man, or the same body, whether of the nobles or of the people to exercise those three powers, that of enacting laws, that of executing the public resolutions, and that of judging the crimes or differences of individuals."

My philosopher's point of view on Brexit would be one of approval. "Brexit" was a term created to talk about Britain leaving the European union because of the many issues that the European Union was bringing on Britain, such as immigration. He would approve of the exit, or "Brexit", because of how the majority of the people approved of it and they used a Democracy to vote on the decision to leave. He says

“The political liberty is a tranquility of mind, arising from the opinion each person has of his safety. In order to have this liberty, it is requisite the government be constituted as one man not be afraid of another.”

This quote shows how Montesquieu believes that every person has their own opinion and that nobody should be scared because of an opinion that they have. He believed that the government should be made so everyone have their own opinion and should not be scared to voice it, or to vote. So when the people made the decision to leave on their own, and they were not forced to leave but left on their own choice through vote, they had political liberty and an opinion of their own safety. Montesquieu would approve of this political choice and liberty.

Montesquieu would be a firm believer of Brexit because of how they used a system that he approved of to make the choice to leave the European Union.
