Thoughts on "Brexit"?
In my opinion, at the moment it seems like a bad idea, but it remains to be seen how UK is affected long term. There are talks of Scotland and Northern Ireland holding referendums to leave the UK as their people voted to stay in EU. I'm not sure how Wales voted, but it seems like the major push for leaving EU came from England. Could we see a UK break-up as well?
As much as I think this is a horrible idea, I don't blame the people for voting this way at all. The EU was supposed to be an economic union, but it apparently has turned into something far bigger, and I don't blame Brits not wanting some faceless bureaucracy thousands of miles away making decisions for them. I understand the reason EU was formed in the aftermath of WWII, in a sense it was a liberal world order designed to keep the peace and stop another fascist from rising. But it seems like over the years it has only created more resentment in the hearts of people and has created all these ultra conservative mini-fascists rising to power on essentially the same platform Hitler campaigned on and acquired power.
I really hope this is an isolated incident and doesn't lead to the ultra conservatives in other EU countries calling for their own exit. I can't imagine the world with the likes of Donald Trump and Boris Johnson (The British Trump as I like to call him lol) in power. I sincerely hope we're not on the path to WWIII.
