These days we are seeing news of fuel shortages at service stations in the UK which are already starting to cause yet another shortage in the chain of staples such as food or medicine, among others.
We also see how this situation generates conflicts and violent confrontations between people queuing to access any of these services; So we see a bleak panorama that is clearly inappropriate for a developed country.
The origin of this unfortunate situation can be found in Brexit and in the nationalist institutions that gave rise to populist approaches to immigration and EU membership. Leaving Europe and not accepting immigration brings to the UK a situation in which the problems of the world today cannot be satisfactorily resolved.
But what is happening in the UK is something that could also affect the rest of Europe given the current interrelationship of the global economy that characterizes our times. It’s something we have to think about having planned responses.
Anyway, I think the lesson we have to learn from the Brexit experience points to the fact that a deep and rigorous analysis must be made from the leaders of a country when the choice of such condescension is passed on to society as that made the decision in favor of Brexit. .
Changing a country’s historical trajectory to take a direction opposite to that of progress, pretending to go it alone rather than share the effort and seize the opportunities offered by the European Union due to its size and the strength of the common economy, is unheard of. from.
The steps backwards that populist adventures of social welfare can assume are easier to take than the massive effort behind every improvement in the conquests of society. Things can deteriorate very easily when choosing paths to anywhere. Clearly, Brexit seems like a road that leads nowhere.
