Figuring the shifting tectonic plates due to Brexit..

Prof Sanjay Reddy of New School has a piece on the topic:

The Brexit referendum is nothing less than an earthquake. But when an earthquake happens, seismologists try to understand how and why the tectonic plates had been shifting, and the pressures that had been building to bring about the event. The causes underlying every earthquake are specific in how they come together, even if they are seen in different places.
He points to three such plates – globalisation, financialisation and democracy. In all the three, he looks at issues from a philosophical level mixed with reality.
It is pretty complicated at some level with multiple European countries involved. It is pretty simple at another where people are searching for their identity and survival..
