The social, economic and environmental failures around the world, including ours, are not going to be fixed following either outcome of the referendum. The Scottish and now this EU referendum are understandable but inappropriate responses to problems caused by a lack of sound ideology in the UK, Europe and the world. Separatism, or ‘isolation’ to quote Barack Obama, is believed by some to be a way to protect interests and provide the control necessary to progress. But LeaveEU, the separatists, do not have a plan, or any ideology, any more than Remain do, and if they did the simple question would be, ‘Why not campaign to roll out your plan across the UK, EU and world?’
As someone who offers a sustainable social and economic vision for the world my initial response to the announcement of an EU ref was disappointment: it is a distraction and provides false hope. However it is now possible for me to see positive outcomes whatever the result: the UK, with its opt outs, has been a millstone around the neck of the EU, a distraction from people perhaps realising that a sound social and economic plan is needed, and it may be the kick up the pants needed.
Campaign media coverage has provided an education on the functions of the EU, other institutions, and the extent nations are involved, but whatever the EU ref outcome social and economic problems will not be fixed – it is rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The world needs a new hegemony, supported by, cooperated with, and enforced upon all nations. It is not possible to say how the outcome of the referendum will affect coverage and appreciation of new ideology, but it certainly is not good to dignify the involved politicians and economists by voting #boycottEUref
I may update this post before June 24 but I do not think it necessary to add any analysis of the arguments, inconsistencies or absurdity on either side, already identified amongst others by uninvolved MPs. Many things have been put on hold by EU ref, but there is no need for you to waste your time too, join us! This web site provides a summary of world problems and solutions that could provide the basis for a federal Europe and a stable, sustainable and prosperous world, you and the media and politicians are invited to get in touch for detail.
