Back in 2012, many people were getting ready for the end of the world, on account of the Mayan calendar reaching its end in December of that year. A friend of mine and I were joking that it wouldn’t be the end of the world, merely the end of the world as we knew it, for nothing would be the same – what used to be up, would be down, and what used to be down, would be up. I guess we were not that far off the mark.
When a self-anointed authority keeps telling you what to say or think, you’ll soon reach a breaking point and scream, “I can’t take it anymore!” Living like that isn’t living; it’s living a nightmare like 1984 or under some totalitarian regime (Marxism, Nazism, etc.).
Britain has voted to leave the European Union (EU). Good decision. In fact, every EU member state should vote to dismantle the artificial supranational structure and organization of the EU and focus instead on creating a proper and prosperous free market characterized by the free movement of goods, services … and people. A free single market only needs participants, not an undemocratic Big Brother organization.
