Brexit’s most crucial positive benefit is to be ruled by a sovereign democracy and democratically elected officials again. Like the ones we enjoy here in the U.S., no freedom-loving American would ever accept how the European Union and Eurozone are ruled.
I warned about this in an article I wrote and spoke with Nigel Farage about it in London in 2012: The Eurozone is on the wrong side of evolution.
It’s extra disturbing to see our President Barack Obama, whom I stood on the National Mall for in 2008 in D.C., take such a foolish public stance against Brexit, unaware apparently of the flagrant abuse of power by a self-appointed oligarchy. He should know better if he listened to more than just a soundbite of Martin Luther King. It explains why Barack doesn’t pick up on the lacking economic principles of freedom as relativity theory, a pluralism right here at home.
Britain will be free from the European Union, which never was. And I congratulate Britain. As a former Dutchman, I can’t help but rejoice over this outcome, especially after our voices were artfully muffled by politicians in 2005, who didn’t like the same result of French and Dutch referendums against the Eurozone constitution and subsequently changed the rules and decided to ignore the referenda.
Britain may now look like a budding child leaving the house for the first time. It is more scary for the parent than for the child, who is ready and eager to explore the real world. The child being Britain, the sad parents being the Union that never was. The child with a successful history that was never theirs.
Sure. People will shed a tear or two from nervousness caused by change, but the people have spoken. I cannot wait for Holland and France to follow suit and leave and for the European countries to regain the incredible value of their differences over the value of their stifling commonalities.
