Nice summary — which means it reflects my sentiments. I would add, however, that this is just the beginning and the end is still far off.
And not only for the UK and the EZ.
The whole world has some tough slogging to do on the way to creating a new world order suitable for meeting emergent challenges humanity faces in the 21st century.
Too many are still living in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and trying to address 21st century challenges and opportunities in outdated terms.
The future belongs to those with the courage and creativity to birth it.
On the other hand, it not just matter of voting. Collective mindsets need changing in these countries.
Winterspeak notes, "As Zizek would say, austerity was the German superego run amok."
To that I would add, that the neoliberalism and ordoliberalism that spawned and justified it is a facet of the collective id underlying the mindset of the West. It is based on centuries of struggle for power among the elites that has been inculcated culturally in the various areas to motivate populations to follow elites and their interests, against the interests of those populations.
This is not changed easily or overnight.
This conflict of hyper-intellectual righteousness (superego) and animal passion (id) has resulted in a history of war and rapine in which lust for power and greed for territorial control has been justified on the most idealistic principles, from freedom to justice.
Building a new UK, however it is configured, a new Europe, and a new world will have to overcome this path dependence that is deep-seated culturally.
Institutional change alone is insufficient. That was the mistake of the EU and EZ in their construction.
The West especially not only can do better, it must do better in the face of existential threats of its own creation.
These threat arose as a consequence of the Great Divergence. The technological dominance of the West led to is political and economic dominance.
Technological dominance is one thing. The twisted thinking that used it for its own aggrandizement and justified it based on "exceptionalism" is another.
Mass psychotherapy needed. And the sickos must be turned out ASAP, instead of being routinely selected and promoted.
