This is a well-written post that explains the anger and dismay of someone who is horrified by the rise of nationalism and fascism across the world. They see Brexit as something that will fuel this sinister process.
Fascism is a vicious, arrogant, superior doctrine that has caused war on numerous occasions. It needs wiping out.
This post was on a Fb post and the man who wrote it was called Kenneth.
“Tectonic plates move, sometimes a long way, and settle into a new location for a while. People have to adjust to new realities, and try to move on. All states of equilibrium are the result of forces acting in different directions, to cause a stasis. Removing one of the forces can cause large movements before a new settling into a new equilibrium. However, sometimes it is better to throw over the grappling hooks and drag the more important plates back into a position that makes more sense. Change, a good shaking up every so often, is good for the soul, and I embrace it enthusiastically. Sometimes though, change is not going forward, but backwards, into darkness and hatred and division. THAT I will not accept. THAT is something that no sane or decent person should accept. Change should always mean progress towards better understandings, not backwards into anarchy. In many ways the Brexit people are like ISIS, wanting to destroy all that has been built up, for the joy of wanton destruction, as in Palmyra, to the detriment of future generations. The shame and pity of it all is of course, that when this happens in the world, as it has many times in the past, within a few decades, we are back with all the problems that people wanted to remove and start clean to solve. Human nature never changes. We are supposed to grow and move and become better as the human race. The rise of Fascism and xenophobia and racism and bigotry are not new, but we have managed in the West to hold them in check for decades through mutual co-operation and hard-won trust between nations. That is all now very clearly at risk. Brexit is quite literally insane.”
