Its most odd. Trump and Brexit, far from further emasculating continental Europe, now look like they're in service of the consolidation of EU power.
Ruttes victory and Wilders' loss seems to have started this, a Macron victory might put the EU on a path of ease that it hasn't experienced since the days before the Balkan states were included.
The people are mostly reduced to, well, weve discussed that. Theyre no longer recognizable as distinct entities, in that they arent capable of willing anything of their own accord, they are only there to put products in their bodies and die after theyve paid for enough products to put in their body. Very economically sanitary. And completely cosmetic - which is why France might come out on top.
If the EU consolidates now, with the US at war with itself, and Britain scrambling and with its only important city ruled by a debilitated quasi humanoid robot of death, it may actually benefit from Brexit.
Im not nearly adequately informed to make a definitive judgment about this, but it's seemed to me that the Brits with retaining the Pound and still profiting from the shared market, were a corrupting force to the Union. London had all the high profile networks and establishments, and these weren't hermetically tied to the Euro.
What if this is the beginning of a truly united Continental Europe?
