Did we ever hear this?
Historicaly there's a wealth of stuff that ultimately watered the ground, where Brexit grew. This video is a great mini analysis of what led to Brexit (featuring one of my History professors)Basically...
There was a demonstrable uptick in jingoism that followed due to the backlash against the monarchy. This was ramped up further over the Millenium and the rampant flag-shagging that took place over the "celebrations" watered the seed.
The year 2000 had been culturally totemic since the '50s. When it arrived, people didn;t really know what to do - no flying cars, no living on the moon...the future, it turned out, was disappointing. The Western world suffered a loss of confidence and a blame culture developed alongside a look-back culture which fostered a "remember the good ol' days?" mentality which soon became toxic rather than blithely nostalgic.
What happened from 2008 to 2016 was essentially a mass weaponising of both of these elements, something that was very easily done due to Britain's post-Empire anxiety and its general history pf both racism and "splendid isolation".
That's the short version.

I'm safe and very sound of mind. No body has to worry about me. I know what I'm doing!!!!! I won't kill myself, I don't feel suicidal. I'm just sad. I hope that's okay.
Out of the 4 about, which do you think I'm most scared of???
