>No say in migration to Europe
Why would we care? We wont be in the EU. It doesn't affect us

>No influence over admitting new members to the EU
Again, why would we care? We won't be in the EU, so why should we give a shit who join a Union that we're not part of?

>No easy access to any other country in the EU
Planes exist. We can fly, just makes life slightly more difficult for those who regularly commute.

>50% of British exports are to the EU
Well actually it's more like 45%, but this still only accounts for 9% of our GDP. Not a great loss.

In addition, if the EU try to alienate the UK in terms of trade, they will fuck themselves over big time. In the event of a leave vote, the UK leaves the EU and they stop gaining the monetary input from the third largest economy in the EU. On top of that, the UK is the largest export market for the EU on the planet. Even the US buy less from the EU than the UK does, and they have 5 times our population.

So if the EU want to try to mess up trade, they'll shaft themselves much harder than they'll shaft us. Especially considering we'll be much more free to trade with the globe, without the endless red tape and regulation that the EU force upon us. We suddenly become a highly consumerist, wealthy and westernized market readily available to the globe. We can get our produce elsewhere, and we can sell elsewhere too. On top of having our fishing waters back, Eu wants fish? Buy it from us.

plus much as a post-brexit uk would lose said 45% of trade... then they can just negotiate with other countries to trade more and balance it out

and it wouldnt be permanent...a brexit europe would just be forced to negotiate new trade terms, there would just be higher tariffs for UK being a non-eu member which they could possibly balance out with increased trade with other countries couldnt they?

yet to see what a post-trump USA will be like, if he does come through as a bro and drop military occupation spending, usa could reallocate that money to trade

UK's options:
leave and be fucked economically due to losing EU mutual trade agreements

or stay and be raped like a prison bitch, being federally required to take in a regular quota of unskilled retard religious zealots who fucking despise everything about you

either way UK will lose money, at least being on their own and having to rebuild their economy back up in other ways is better than having money and being forced to spend it on demanding foreigners who dont appreciate it anyway

Care to give a decent argument in the first place other then: 'Raped like a bitch' 'unskilled retard religious zealots who fucking despise everything about you'

Also, if you think any political side, in this case the left, is inherently bad then you are no better then ISIS militants or tumblerinas.

I heard rumor that if the UK decides to jump ship, other countries will follow suit.
Mostly do to the UK footing the majority of the bill. Not sure how true this is.

basically letting the rest of Europe go to shit doesnt impact Brittan? hard to do anything from the outside..

stay in and have a vote in how your continent moves forward, and just dont follow the rules you dont like, they cant afford to kick you out. win-win

crusaderzav had some good points, but you just tried to quote me for something I didnt say...

not having a vote in the EU doesn't mean I think they aren't a part of the continent and still a nation.. fuck off lol

#69 - crusaderzav (06/23/2016) [-]
We can still assist in how our continent moves forward, because we're the 5th largest economy on the planet, 3rd largest on this continent. We have the 4th largest military power on the planet. We have one of the permanent seats on the UN security council. The UK won't stop having a voice, and being in the EU isn't really helping, since our elected representatives are virtually powerless. MEP's can do nothing to instigate, amend or remove legislation.

All the EU does for us is hold us back with it's endless legislation and trade barriers to the rest of the world, whilst forcing out compliance with the EU commissions decisions.

No say in migration to Europe, no influence over admitting new members to EU (see Turkey), no easy access to any other country in the EU, business or otherwise, 50% of british exports are to the EU that will have to be replaced, instant recession etc.

I mean, if you put three bullets in one of these folks before they can hurt anyone, they don't win.


they want to kill people, we don't want those people to die. if we kill said terrorist, we win.


and the wonderful thing about death is that once they're dead, what they want doesn't matter.

it's not about spiting them. it's about making sure we fulfill our objectives - which is the safeguarding of our people. if we achieve that, then it doesn't matter if the fuckers die happy or not.

Good luck finding out who is a terrorist and who's not so you can shoot them. Either an execution is going to take months to plan and carry out or you're going to be wrong half of the time. How's that for "safeguarding our people"?

You seem very eager to throw the ideologies that founded the western world overboard just to be able to respond in kind and create martyrs. The US already tried that with drone strikes and look how that turned out.

Come to think of it, why did you even bring up a lifestyle where one has no expectations when we're arguing about a lifestyle that revolves around negative expectations? Also, I know I'm going to regret bringing this up, because it will inevitably lead to us arguing about semantics again, but nihilism isn't really about one's expectations. It's the belief that nothing in life really matters. It's not on the optimism/pessimism scale.

To quote you again, "A person who doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things happening to them won't recognize good things for what they are."

"A person who doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things"

"doesn't have the capacity to imagine good things"
I'm not saying you're opposed to the idea of pessimists being able to form mental images. I'm saying you're opposed to the idea of pessimists having mental images they enjoy. But can we not talk about their capacity to imagine anymore? Now we're actually just talking about semantics.

I'll concede that you never said anything about success, but even though you never actually said the word pessimism, you were clearly describing pessimism on a comment about pessimism on a content about pessimism.

#48 - craxxet (05/18/2016) [-]
Nope, like you said yourself, pessimists aren't unable to imagine (actually expect but who cares right?) positive scenarios happening to them.

Having no expectations more closely fits the definition of nihilism, not pessimism. Nihilism is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the lack of belief in one or more reputedly meaningful aspects of life.
