For decades, it seemed as if the countries of the world were headed toward an inevitable and inescapable global government. Organizations such as the European Union were born and grew steadily, while the United Nations became an inescapable entity thrust onto the citizens of the world’s countries.
When Donald Trump suggested we leave the both NATO and the United Nations, pundits reacted as if the suggestions were unthinkable. The assumption was that the country agreed. Like it or not, the UN and NATO were unfortunate realities, despite the fact that The United States puts in far more then it gets out of both organizations.
Meanwhile, the UK was facing a similar choice. After years of investing in the EU with little in return, many within the population of Great Britain finally turned their backs on the continental government. Predictably, they were publically shamed for their desires to leave. The were told they had no chance.
Then, surprisingly, they succeeded.
The results signal a shift in the direction of these all-powerful institutions.
Brits took their country back last week, and now it looks as if they may be the first of many.
We Americans have July 4th, and the Brits now have June 23rd.
In the words of Nigel Farage, leader of the the UKIP and top proponent for the United Kingdom to leave the European, the Brexit vote was Britain’s “Independence Day.”
June 23rd will be the day that the British people filed their papers to divorce a global bureaucracy that buried national sovereignty in bureaucratic red tape. After constant failures that left many Brits without jobs and living in a nation being colonized by migrants with no attachment to British culture, enough was enough.
After almost three decades of rule, globalism was witnessing a Judgment Day and Brexit represents a nationalistic movement that has laid in wait for two decades; a movement that is jumping the pond to the United States and finding a home with Donald Trump’s “America First” campaign.
But how did globalism get here? How was the vision of the international bourgeois was rebuked and rejected in such a short order?
Much to the chagrin of the “Remain” crowd, the answer is not rooted in boorish patriotism. Rather, it is rooted in an understanding that global governing at the expense of national sovereignty never works. People will not die for bureaucracies, but they will die, sacrifice and share for their country.
With the winds of Brexit at the backs of ordinary, patriotic citizens, the move toward globalism may finally be dying a slow death. While an eventual world order once looked inevitable, this may be a sign that the tide has turned.
Not everyone agrees with Breitbart’s perspective, however. For those even more conspiracy minded, Brexit is even more of a deception than most realize:
