Brexit to where?

This piece in the Guardian reminds us of something we already know, that there is more to national independence than leaving the EU.

Hinkley Point: UN says UK failed to consult over risks

UN Economic and Social Council says Britain has not met its obligations to discuss the impact of nuclear accident with neighbouring countries.


The Guardian piece links to this UN document.

Economic Commission for Europe 
Meeting of the Parties to the Convention
on Environmental Impact Assessment
in a Transboundary Context

Shaking off the EU is only part of the story. There are UN tentacles too. Ultimately it may be necessary to accept that the world is changing and national self-determination is and probably always was a romantic dream.

The abandonment of hope is a minor objective in the greater plan. An element of liberty is unending resistance.

Sackers - I agree. Unending resistance is fun too.

The bigger the system gets, the more dystopian life becomes at the bottom of the pyramid. Unless of course there is separation of small communities working in their own interests under the radar of the global hierarchy.
There's an idea for a novel in there I think.

BB - something like Swiss cantons could be a start, but if the pyramid is too large there may still be too many layers.
