With the Brexit referendum two years past and the beginning of the transition period still nearly a year away, it’s unclear exactly what sort of separation will take place. Indeed, it seems to be getting less clear as time rolls on. Does Britain stick with the original “hard Brexit” plan and cut all the strings, or would the “soft Brexit” touted by the political elite as the “best of both worlds” better serve the people?
The answer to that question is found not in discourse with the establishment politicians – most of whom wanted to stay in the EU anyway – but in what Brexit means for the people of Britain. And the Brexit voted for by 52% of those people was a complete rejection of the globalist rule from Brussels – not some “soft Brexit” that saw the nation still under the yoke of EU regulations, but lacking the voice to influence them. Don’t believe me? Ask the man behind the movement, Mr. Nigel Farage, who had this to say about the globalist elite:
“Such is the attitude of our lords and masters. Such is the attitude of the establishment. They think they know better than us how we should live our lives, and they’ve done their best over the last couple of decades to take away from us the opportunity to express our opinion. And what we did in 2016 with Brexit and with Trump is we said ‘To Hell with you. We know how we want to live our lives. We know who we want to govern us. And we want you gone.’”
Under EU rule, the English have little autonomy. Most things are regulated and standardized across the board, from manufacturing to international trade and tariffs. The borders are locked open, allowing violent Islamic immigrants to swarm the county. Such is the nature of a subordinate group within an empire – quite the role reversal, considering Britain’s history. And now the people of Britain have finally had enough legislation without fair representation.
A Vision for the Future
It’s anybody’s guess as to what sort of Brexit will actually take place – or even if it will. Like an oft-beaten spouse trying to escape an abusive marriage, the Brits just want out. And as habitual abusers typically do, the EU and British “Remain” folk continue to fight the divorce tooth and nail. From the two-year adjustment period to the economic doomsaying, to the threat of steep tariffs, which would go into effect immediately, they’ll do anything they can to convince the U.K. to stay.
But the Brits seem to have had their fill of the empire, and Brexit means abandoning it for the nation-state. It means the right to control trade, industry, and immigration. It means liberty and self-governance. And if the men and women of England care about attaining these lofty goals, there will be no soft Brexit.
