You say, "deciding to cut off Europe," but in fact, European countries are cutting themselves out.
It's for the simple reason that they don't want anything getting out of Europe.
It's just like, "what happens in Europe, stays in Europe".
This is setting the stage for a major event.
I've seen this coming for years.

Sure it's horrible news for y'all selling personal information. Remember the days when we got spam in our inboxes? Well, our email addresses were currency and we had no control.

Now, the new law says the individual owns their own personal information and you better not share it with anyone unless I specifically say so.

It's horribly bad news for the big corps like Google and Facebook that handle personal data as a business model.

Not exactly sure what this horrible idea about controlling your personal data is about.

The new approach is horrible for a number of reasons. First, it has draconian punishments. Secondly ICANN is already in place which gives the public the ability to unsubscribe easily. Then there are always cookie removers and cookie blockers.

Put a friggin cookie blocker on their computer.

People who drive into a store's parking lot or into a store and often being videotaped. If the EU had its way, the stores would be required to stop each car upon entry and provide them with a long list of options regarding the video before the customer was allowed to enter. If the stores didn't do this, they could be fined 20 million Euros.

So the notion that we the internet should be some special safe place for individuals who might be triggered, might not be practical in the real world.

But perhaps the biggest aspect of this is that the government should NOT be sticking its police-backed noses in between the private agreements of two parties when they are engaged in possible commerce.

Should the government get between a man and a woman who are engaged in kissing and possible foreplay? Does each party need to fill out a form for each bit of physical contact?

Likewise it is fooking intrusive for the EU to demand visitors of websites to check boxes giving permission because it greatly hinders the commerce that takes place and greatly adds to the business's cost of customer procurement. The check off box literally scares away potential customers. This is especially true smaller businesses that don't have the same name recognition as a Facebook or an AT&T for example.

Then of course there are sooooo many different requirements that the business owner must meet or end up getting bankrupted by the EU. Experts say the cost to become fully and correctly 'compliant' - a.k.a. a slave to the EU's dictatorial rules -  is $100,000 plus a full time compliance officer.

Not every business person is a computer programming geek. For example, I have no idea what sort of information might be collected if you visit my websites. I understand I could put scripts that would enable me to advertise to you after you visited. Oh, the humanity if someone were to see my ad instead of someone else's!

Who is to say that the EU won't add new costly requirements? How would a tiny business even keep up with the latest legaleze from the EU?

Maybe this is why large corporations with their own legal departments have decided to simply ban visitors from the EU.

Let's make 5G safe by installing zirconium ceramic bricks to the cell masts. It will save the providers billions of dollars quickly by reducing interference.

Can you ask yourself "Why do I love discovering how my protons can experience Loving Kindness?"
