All this political primitivism, the brexit is just a sign of this reawakening of national sovereignty movements winning against the progressive regional movements. It's a return to old ways of doing politics, eventhough the E.U. is flawed as it stands it is still better than this small-minded nonsense. It has decent seperation of power and voter participation, so the E.U. yet another victim of neo-liberalism and it's out of control banking sector. But these institutions aren't static, they can change.
