Brexit? Brexit has unleashed a tidal wave of hate…
But if Brexit… Your writing is not looking for reasons behind it .. the roots of the hate, racism, xenophobia which are causing serious hate crimes in England, and tearing through nations all over in Europe now, causing deep sorrow in hearts of good people .. why? because of ignorance and huge errors of careerist politicians and greed…yes greed… there is a wealthy country but its citizens feel they do not get enough money (NHS problems, wages, housing) They are blaming EU-migrants, who are working hard for this country and paying taxes…This migration is the worst for countries of CE and EE because these countries are losing educated, skilled work-force and tax-payers for their economy. This migration is an engine for UK, but people do not consider it, no they do not respect it, they are simply hating those people who are coming from Europe and working hard for this country. Why?
Brexit is a total betrayal of Europe, European economy, European culture. Now the English people want to earn big deals, big trades with every blocks, but not with Eu. There is a competition between cultures and Europe is losing its power in this global competition thanks to uncertainity of British mentality. And above all UK is doing this without knowing, respecting of Eu. They had decided about something without real knowledge!!! This country just wants all advantages of European market to trade without respecting the rules of this community.. selfish mentality.
Brexiters of course fear to lose the advantages of single market, because the real danger of it that UK will lose it’s financial companies in city of London. Money again. All what I see that west countries are greedy. They do not want nothing just more money to consume, to travel and do not care with others.
Reading your writing I see points, worries about democracies of CE. Do you know the history of those countries? (Hungarian Kingdom, Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy, how WW1 started, Trianon peace-agreement and its effects, WW2, socialism, revolutions in CE, and the role of West countries, ‘the big demokracies’, who forgot to help because of Suez in 1956, etc… ) It is easy to blame the democracies of CE, the West is always doing it. But demokracy and freedom is well on this part of Europe, as was always well, even in the most darkest times people treasured it in their hearts. And people are living and working peacefully, and filled with enthusiasm for freedom on this part of Europe, without hate. Central and Eastern European people love Europe above all, Europe is our home, we cherish our Christian culture, and defend it as we did it through thousands years of history (Poland and Hungary, against mongols, turks, Russia, etc). We do it, without West- Europe would see us as parner. Because what was and what is Visegrad-countries for Europe now? Market to sell services and goods, cheap labour to work hard for multi-national companies for low wages for what people in west countries would not wake up at all. Why? Because Europe is unbalanced economically, and now this is the only engine of prosperity. West is whealty, East is poor. Why? Historically this part of Europe was continuosly ruined, and robbed by others. After WW2 west Europe was rebuilt by Marshall-plan with Marshall (US) money, east-Europe didn’t..but got socialism. And what happened after 1989? The western capital robbed again this land, started to use it as a modern colony with cheap resources.
What I see and think the biggest problem in the world, it is emptiness and greed of west politics. And instead of the west countries (US, UK) would investigate the roots of their problems they just blame other nations not being democratic enough. This supremacy of liberalism entwined with greed leads to instability, as it is done in Iraq, Lybia, Egypt, Syria.
If Brexit then dig deep into society of UK, if Trump and Clinton then dig deep into society of US. Both is sick. But they are dare to rule the World through money-system and diplomacy.
The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.” — Alexis de Tocqueville
Maybe my opinion is far from yours, but I think first the world has to respect differencies, and first must understand that supremacy, superiority leads to more war. Do not judge other countries without knowing their situations. We are not judging UK, this country wants brexit then it is free to leave EU. But leaving is leaving, even if our hearts is crying. But we respect it silently without throwing words. Sadly I cannot see the same respect in words of politicans of UK’s government. (David Davis, Theresa May, Boris Johnson)
My last point.. Migration could be handled effectively by a well-working registration system.. with or without Brexit, but hurt and damage in societies and human hearts and to heal racism, xenophobia caused by hate? Only by wiser leaders.
Thank you for your thoughtful writing, and for your time for reading my points.
