Based on the responses I’ve seen, #Brexit is like trying a spontaneous divorce to cope with a midlife crisis.

  1. I have a hard time believing the establishment couldn’t have prevented the outcome, if they truly did not want it. Furthermore, is there any evidence that British/European leaders seriously desire security? Even Steinmeier had to break from the recent NATO insanity, which was rightly labeled “dangerous”, by virtue if positioning of such forces, so close to such a complex theater of war.

    Also, the serious financial problems were there the whole time…and would have been there with a “remain” vote. It’s as though a Quantum Measurement of Schrödinger’s Cat was finally taken. Turns out it was dead this whole time!

    I read an article titled “4 ways the Brexit could hurt the US Economy”, and I thought it was weak propaganda, insinuating that something not just already dead, but fully putrid, could be “hurt?”

    The news coverage is interesting and I’m trying to follow as much as I can, but I think the responsibility for this mess cannot be blamed on a referendum, though perhaps this lets so many technocrats who did walk us step-by-step, to this point, off the hook.

    Generally I try to remember the whole recent past, and never forget we are in the middle if several undeclared, serious wars.

    If one only reads Western News, they won’t have the full picture…

    Still, it’s extremely serious and unnerving. But people with an eye on the Trans-Atlantic system have been in a legitimate panic since at least before 9/11…

    …Some say this panic explains the recent spread of war, from Libya, Ukraine and Syria, which could threaten Eurasian and even global security.

    Lastly, while there is cause for fear, there is also an available solution, but it requires cooperation with Russia and China, who our leaders idiotically demonize, as well as wiping out a large chunk of the financial parasites, and establishing a set of non-monetary, physical relations to replace (and not fix) the last 40-50 years of unrestrained globalization.

    1. In my view, it was a bad idea to leave as opposed to remaining in the EU and working to change it from the inside. Arguments about sovereignty beg the question why Britain entered the EU in the first place. Not accepting Syrian refugees, which I believe is the point which gained the most political support, is terribly ironic because Great Britain is ultimately responsible for their plight due to its role in cobbling together the states of the middle east for the benefit of the Saudi royal family.

      In the end, it’s best to simply take an ‘antiglobalist’ stance, and not let liberal politicians conflate globalism with internationalism.

      Totally agree that we should cooperate with Russia. I have watched several interviews with Putin in which his responses are so much more intellectual and measured compared to the propaganda foghorn called the media.

      China is too aggressive for me to equate with Russia, which has maintained mostly defensive positions on every issue. China has a way of only cooperating when it keeps the ridiculous majority of the benefit.

      Thanks for the comment and dialog, Brent!
