A 27-year old Londoner explains why they voted to exit the European Union, including the backlash and social climate. The entire article is well worth reading – Excerpt:
[…] I believe the E.U. is a fascist, racist organization, a pro-war alliance and a massive corporate lobby. The EU’s own propaganda spells out its xenophobic worldview very clearly.
The following advert from 2012 shows a white woman dressed similarly to the violent protagonist in Tarantino’s movie, Kill Bill, walking into a deserted warehouse where she is threatened by 3 insulting stereotypes: an Asian martial arts expert, a sword-yielding, flying man in a turban, and a half-naked black man threatening her with his capoeira moves.
She replicates herself all around them so they are surrounded by 12 of her, thus ‘civilising the violent barbarians’ who then sit down to negotiate before they disappear, encircled by the 12 stars of the European Union – watch it here if you don’t believe me:
[…] In my opinion, immigration should occur at a speed that the majority of the existing population, wherever they were originally from, is happy with. Elected governments should be held completely accountable to the people, which can only happen in a sovereign state with a true democracy.
With a truly educated and diverse population that was in control of its own nation, politicians would not get away with murder so easily, and trials could be held to give terroristic governments and war criminals the punishment that would prevent such leaders from ever being elected again. In order for ordinary people rather than multi-national corporations to influence governments, there needs to be democratic accountability and (more importantly) devolution of power and wealth, spread out as locally as possible to protect against corruption.
In other words, self-responsibility and self-governance is needed (the exact opposite of the EU). This would stop the bombs that are leading to the current mass influx of migrants into Europe.
Economically speaking of course, there is enough information online for anyone to see that every country in Europe is being eaten alive.
We cannot keep misinterpreting the cries of suffering people across Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the rest, as cries for us to stay in. Hundreds of millions of people in Europe feel under attack and need the EU to end, just as our fellow citizens do.
Of course, those who pull the strings will make austerity far worse as punishment for daring to get out, but don’t forget how dire the situation already was. Those in the mainstream who seek to dismiss the suffering of the English, Greek, or Spanish working classes as far-right bias or provincial ignorance are dangerous people with vested interests in corruption and inequality, whether they have the personal intellect to realise it or not.
For greater economic forecasts and some invaluable insights, go and read or watch anything by the Forecaster (this was the name of the 2014 documentary about his life), Martin Armstrong, whose ability to crack the code of the rigged stock market earned him 11 years in jail without trial in the United States. He is out now and it is worth finding out not only why he views the European Union as a sinking ship, but also how he places Brexit within a wider seismic global shift. (read full article)
