Brexit

By David Johanssen

Are the people of Britain being frightened and bullied into surrendering their democracy and freedom? The European Union began in the aftermath of World War II as collaboration among 28 European countries. It has been largely viewed as a noble endeavor designed to enhance economic stability and peaceful interests across the continent. But increasing opposition contends that the EU has become nothing but a corrupt and all-powerful political tool that effectively works against the will of the very people it should serve.
