I’ve decided not to create a proper video on the EU situation, this means the half-finished one will not see completion.
There’s a few reasons for this:
- I’m not necessarily less confident in my position (which is still Leave), but I am less confident in my justification for that confidence. I don’t know enough about the fine-grain details of European politics, economics, law, etc., to explain and reason my position from the bottom-up. This wouldn’t be much of a problem if there was more time to research and absorb information on the matter, but time is not a commodity I have in abundance.
- Again, due to a lack of time, I don’t think I can produce a video that’s comprehensive enough (covering as many facets of it) on this issue as I can be and would want to be.
- I can’t do much amusing with this topic; it’s too serious, and I like the light-hearted style of discourse in my videos.
A lot of the reason for my realising the first point is from watching Sargon of Akkad and Thunderf00t discuss the issue. I am far less informed than them, and I think I would be doing a disservice discussing the issue publicly.
However, I do have some content on the EU that I can publish here; I had a conversation with a farmer I’m acquainted with on the EU situation; once I’ve cut a few irrelevant parts out of that recording, I’ll upload it right here. He began in favour of Remain, but he agreed on almost every reason I gave for Leave.
I also have a post on my website called #Brexit Media Shortlist which links to various videos (in a playlist I created) which give information about the EU issue either from the Brexit perspective, or from both sides in live debates.
I’m going to do my best to release a good-quality video before the next Debunkathon on the 25th. It might not be too long. I feel like I’ve shaken off the training wheels of religious debates, and now I want to move on to the next lowest level: the social justice psuedo-religion and Islamism.
I will still be voting for Leave in the EU referendum, as that is where I have heard the most compelling arguments; though I believe that whatever we do, there will be a lot of adversity, and the UK is going to have a tough time, but I think we have a better chance without the constraints of the EU.
