This isn't a post per se. Back when I wrote this post, Brexit wasn't even on my radar. I hadn't heard the term, although it had been around, it seems, since 2007. I said, however, this was an election about globalism versus nationalism. Some are also claiming that British nationalism right now is xenophobic. A whole post could and should be written on just that type of terminology. If you are going to preserve or conserve a nation or a culture, one of the threats are foreign nations and cultures. Anyone at this moment should say, "Duh." That doesn't make you xenophobic.
Of great interest to me are the United States bandwagon supporters of Brexit, who don't get it, absolutely don't get it. They can't seem to make the application.
In the post I wrote on May 24, I said this:
Where there is no absolute truth, you can't be better. If no one is greater than anyone else, then borders don't matter. You have no culture to protect. It doesn't make any difference. The future won't be very bright for a country that doesn't see a reason for its own existence.I ended with this question:
If nothing can be better, than why conserve anything anyway?People, pundits, voters, citizens need to decide where they come down on this. You can parse through every other aspect of this election, but I believe in our present situation, this is how basic this is. It's not about things more complicated, albeit still simple things. If you don't understand this, then you will be a participant in turning the country over to globalists.
