The schism in society

I'm afraid I must agree with this article. Brexit has made Britain a hostile, divided nation. Since the referendum, we seem as a country, to have been torn in two, with 48% of us despising 52%. I'm as guilty of it as anyone: every piece of news makes me resent those who voted to leave even more. I wonder how they could be so stupid; I wonder how they could allow theirselves to be fooled by such obvious, manifest folly. Yet this cannot go on - we cannot continue to hate eachother.

The problem is, I think it will. As the shit really starts to hit the fan, the resentment will grow. The remain group will get more and more angry that their warnings were ignored, while the outists will get increasingly defensive and start to thrash out as their dreams crumble and their lies are exposed. It will reach the point where they start denying reality, even when it becomes so obvious that it will be like arguing day was night. We're already beginning to see this happen as the leavers start to blame everyone but theirselves for the disaster they have brought about. Those they fooled into voting for brexit will either admit their mistake or become equally defensive, refusing to admit what to anyone else is patently obvious. This will cause a schism in society, a schism which will just get wider and wider as the reality of last year's folly sinks in. Half of us will feel they have been proven right yet are powerless to stop the coming catastrophe; the other half will feel unfairly blamed and resent having been duped, their mighty act of defiance falling to pieces just as the experts predicted it would.

Oh how we'll all soon wish that last year never happened.
