Brexit is a worrying sign that our world is on the verge of undergoing seismic changes—or is it?
It was a shocking message: the Great Britain had decided to leave European Union. In almost no time the media was instantly filled with analysis and editorials and prolonged debates on comment sections. The British pound plunged to the lowest in 30 years.
In the wake of Brexit came the realization of a recession. All of a sudden everyone started to panic and caused turmoil in the market. The footsie dropped and DAX and Nikkei and Hang Seng followed the same pattern.
But that doesn’t concern me. After all, them bankers and investors aren’t the ones who live below poverty line.
What concerns me was the fragmentation of Europe. Nostalgic nationalism gave rise to “far-right populist movement”.
History repeats itself, they say. Europe had nightmares, and those nightmares came in ultra-nationalistic nights.
And if this is another history, pray it won’t go down to the same corner as Franz Ferdinand or Edvard Beneš did.
