Contrary to mainstream rhetoric, Britain's Brexit vote opens the door for prosperity, not decline

Freedom is a funny thing, and over the next several months the UK will have the chance to see just how successful their return to sovereignty is once they finalize their actions in leaving the European Union dictatorship.  By this, we mean that unlike the other 27 permanent and ancillary nations who must all move in lock-step with the un-elected bureaucracy ruling out of Brussels, Britain can now choose its own destiny and create new agreements that are beneficial to themselves in a world moving towards free and bi-lateral trade.

Ironically, and despite the Damocles Sword of ongoing economic sanctions, the best performing economy last year was not China, not the United States, and certainly not the Eurozone, but instead it was Russia, who because of the sanctions were forced to change their trade alliances with the West, and created an environment where they are now the global leader in energy production, and attracting investments and new trade because they centered themselves as a new hub for free and bi-lateral trade.

And assuredly, if Britain wants to find new markets and new options, Asia and Eurasia are the places to go, rather than continuing to wallow under the tyranny of the West.

The United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union opens up new prospects and opportunities for the development of London’s trade and business relations with Moscow, Alan Thompson, Russia’s Director of the Russo-British Chamber of Commerce, said Wednesday.

“Uncertainty affects moods of Britons more than Russians… But we expect that the turnover [between Russia and Britain] will grow. It is true that London as a financial center may be hampered.. But we see it [Brexit] as something that opens up new prospects and new opportunities,” Thompson told reporters.

Unlike the European Union and the oligarchy in Washington, both Russia and China have no desire to impose political requirements on their trade partners where events such as forced acceptance of refugees would not even be a topic of consideration.  And in fact, the rising Eurasian and Asian economic unions that are close to encompassing 40% of the global population strongly believe in national self-determination, and that free trade outside the dollar is the answer to the world’s financial problems.

When politicians in the U.S. and in the Eurozone speak of ‘alliances’ what they really mean is bending one’s sovereignty to the will of a small group of people who seek dominion over the people’s of the West.  And the recent Brexit event, just like the rise of outsider political candidates in the U.S., France, Italy, and Greece, is a result of the pendulum shifting away from globalism and elitist authority, and one back towards self-determination and making the best economic decisions for oneself, rather than sacrificing their nations for the lowest common denominator.
