...the Brits have voted to move out of the "European House", the EU.
I'm almost in tears.
In Europe, the vote is already being called an earthquake in the politics,
and economies, of Britain and the continent.
Political unionists fear the end of the "European project",
another status qou.
No country has ever left the EU, but Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders
immediately called for a referendum,
and France's National Front leader Marine Le Pen,
who will run for president next year, hailed the result.
So, what comes next?
Nexit (Netherlands)? Frexit (Fance)? Poxit (Poland)?
Öxit (Österreich/Austria)? or Huxit (Hungary)? .....?
It is frightening.
QUO VADIS Europe ?
Dear European friends, wherever you live,
please keep in mind:
only together we are strong.
Only together can we build up a sense of a joint nationhood.
Don't let the right-wing populists win.
Their policies and rethoric are considered a provocation to our democratic culture.
I'll keep up hope for a peaceful cohabitation in an united Europe.
