If the UK leaves the EU then we’re playing right into the hands of those who ruined both Cyprus and Greece. It’s possible we live in a “protection” racket that the Mafia could only wet dream about.
Go and look at the size of the UK’s debt. The Tories have simultaneously convinced the British electorate that they’re fiscally frugal while spending every cent and borrowing at a rate never before seen. Consider who the beneficiaries of this might be. It’s not you or me, or anyone here – yet I’d wager a fair few voted for this and would defend it. Look at the people supporting the campaign to leave the EU. Ask yourself whether these are your people.
If we leave the EU then there will be debts that must be paid. (I’m being ironic here, if you haven’t read Graeber’s, Debt, then you should.) The NHS will be sold to the highest bidder, though don’t expect funds to end up in the public purse. Same with the BBC. Same for every public service that can be exploited for profit. We’ve already lost tertiary education. People still tell me, “We can’t afford it.” I used to implore them to go and read about money and what it is, but I’ve realised that folk don’t want their bubble burst. Better to trust authority; for which read an establishment cabal of white, male, entitled Etonians.
Has it occurred to you that the entire nation is just a plaything for these dudes? Something to keep them occupied. Their ancestry is the British monarchy and its hierarchy. They have history, so to speak.
Try to imagine what that world would be like to live in. Even if you think my analysis is lunacy, think about the consequences of actually leaving the EU. Not the euphoria of being on the winning side of the vote for one night and following blurry morning, but the day to day reality. I’d love to know why you believe it would be better for all of us.
