Brexit! Thoughts on the UK Referendum Result
What happens now? – A clash of ideologies
The referendum result announced on 24 June was that 48% of votes cast were in favour of the UK remaining in the European Union, while 52% of votes were in favour of a British exit.
Does this mean that the UK will actually leave the European Union? I predict that despite the vote the UK will not leave.
The Brexit affair has implications for the general ordering of society in the longer term, both on Earth and, in due course, at other locations in the Solar System.
The long term future of human civilisation, together with its extension on an interplanetary and ultimately an interstellar scale, depends upon the continuation of the present pattern of growth and progress. This is why I am a cosmopolitan.
