The stunning defeat of the ‘Remain camp’ in the Brexit referendum in the UK and the surprise ‘discursive dominance’ of Bernie Sanders and Donald J. Trump throughout the presidential primaries cycle on the other side of the Atlantic have shaken the neoconservative-consumerist policy consensus in Berlin and Brussels.
