The Geopolitics of Brexit


Today, June 23rd, the referendum on the country’s membership in the European Union begins in the UK. This vote can be decisive for the fate of not only the UK but also the European Union as such. In the context of the EU’s numerous internal problems, the exit of such a large country as the United Kingdom could lead to a chain reaction of disintegration.

The dual nature of the EU

From a geopolitical point of view, the EU is an ambivalent entity. On the one hand, it was created by globalists who viewed the European integration project as one of the building blocks of a future globalized world. The United States also supported the creation of the European Union, seeking to create a bloc in Europe directed against Russia. The EU promotes ultra-liberal ideology and in some ways acts much more radical than the United States.

On the other hand, from an objective point of view, the union of European countries can act as one of the poles of a multipolar world, which means that it could challenge the United States at any moment. As part of Eurasian Rimland, Europe can adhere to an Atlanticist or Continentalist orientation.

The Interests of the globalists

Britain has always acted as a conduit for US interests in the EU. The UK contributes to the fact that Atlanticist tendencies outweigh Continentalist ones within the EU. Accordingly, if the globalists and the United States intend to continue the EU project, they will do everything to keep the UK within the union. If not, they will enable Britain to exit from the EU. The most likely scenario is the first one, as Barack Obama and George Soros, and members of the Bilderberg Club, are in favor of keeping the UK in the EU. The massive media campaign against Brexit and the strange murder of the MP Joe Cox on the eve of the referendum only confirm this.

The death of democracy

But what would happen if the majority of British people still vote against membership in the European Union? The public mood in Britain is such that the ratio of supporters and opponents of the EU is approximately fifty-fifty. This means that the fate of the country can be decided by a few thousand votes. In these circumstances, administrative resources can have decisive influence. Vote rigging is more than predictable especially since ballots sent by mail are an old tried and true weapon in the hands of the globalists. In the recent presidential elections in Austria, it was these ballot tricks that helped to steal victory from the Eurosceptic Austrian Freedom Party’s candidate.
