Brexit – Brexshit – Brextinct

Why was the legitimate and understandable wish of the British people about independence and liberation from the EU converted into political chaos, where the  British people will be hit by a lot of economic problems, problems that are shared by all the countries with which the UK is doing business.

Why has the support for Brexit started to crumble?

The answer is, that the arguments put forward by the EU-sceptics in the campaign had a completely skewed focus. It was all about immigration and independence, but it ignored the dissident criticism that we need to present to the EU.

There are many good and serious reasons to be against the EU. EU resistance is not populist, while EU enthusiasm is serious politics.

It is the other around. It is EU enthusiasm that is populist.

The detailed arguments for this can be found here.

Open Letter to all of us.

Refugees is a giant global problem consisting of at least 86,5 million fellow human beings.

Gallup World has published a survey, concluding that approx.. 750 miilion adults want to leave their homeland if they could. So the potential for a far greater refugee problem that the present is great.

There is a need for far more substance in the refugee debate if these problems are to be resolved. The present debate is about exploiting immigrants, asylum seekers and others with a different ethnic background as whipping boys to obtain political power.

The debate should be about finding out why so many people are so dissatisfied with their living conditions, that they choose to emigrate or have already made that choice. Not least: it should be about solving these reasons to stop the flow of refugees, and to rebuild their country of origin so that they will choose otherwise.
