In less than 24-hours, the people of Great Britain will go to the polls in referendum to vote either to stay or to exit the European Union(EU). In spite of the many opinions and arguments rendered for or against remaining in the EU, the ultimate decision rests with the British people and their understanding of economic collectivity tempered against narrow nationalism.
Born a subject of the former British Empire via its colonization of Barbados, in the Caribbean, I've always harbored a profound respect for British values and culture. However, in recent months I've become troubled over what I thought ought to be an easy decision for the Brits to make to stay in the EU over the complexity by the stunning fears raised by the Brexit camp.
I'm perplexed that the sound educational system, which the Brits left in place in Barbados, of which I have benefited giving me the useful skills of critical thinking and reasoning, apparently has evaded many proponents for Brexit.
In brief, I believe the basic argument to remain or to leave the EU should center on two points: broad economic benefits of a continental union versus narrow nationalism. The British people will decide tomorrow, June 23, 2016. May God grant them wisdom of reason.
