Dawning of a New Era

Post by Argonheart_Po » Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:50 pm

We have enteredd a post-democratic era. The EU, the epicentre of the globalist elitist agenda, sees democracy as an inconvenience.

And all over Europe young people are angry at the EU, except the UK’s wimpish, anti-rebels, the state worshipping weaklings. How did we produce such a pitiful politicians-know-best generation?



Minute by minute, mile by mile, nothing that we do causes greater or more easily avoidable harm to the environment than flying, which more often than not is optional or merely recreational.

This is the most important lesson out of the Brexit debacle, apparently.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.

That democracy has been ignored?

Yes Eric. It’s important.

We need the democratic muscularity and economic dynamism of Saudi Arabia and Russia.

The irony is that Brexit was about re-asserting British sovereignty, so what is the UK doing two weeks before the deadline? Begging the EU to extend the brexit deadline for a couple of months. Strategery.

It's an interesting set of circumstances. Do we trust everyday citizens to make decisions like this?

The politicians-know-best, anti-rebel weaklings don’t trust us.

Fuck them.

Yawn. If democracy was valued by the elite imposing brexit on the country then there would be another referendum, but the plebs might vote remain so it can’t be risked.

Yep, do the average citizens realise the consequences of voting for cunts/proposals like Trump and Leave?

For a minority of them, it has started to dawn on them. Most though are pigheaded and stupid. I blame old age.

Nonsense.

Having vote after vote until you get a result acceptable to the elites is not democracy.

Why not change the EU to make it more democratic?

How is the EU undemocratic? Because it won't do what the British want? Even when the British don't know what they want?

Yes, it's stunning seeing (some) Brits making (usually incorrect) complaints about lack of democracy in the EU when half their parliament is unelected.

The arguments trying to make Brexit a matter of principle are just hilarious. Plenty of Britons here recognise the problem. It wont change anything though. You'll still have that bunch of inbred chinless wonders thinking their self confidence is the same as intelligence and ability.

Get ready for it, then. All that one is interested in is personal enrichment. I predict a long career on the American public speaking circuit, preaching to people who think an affected upper class English accent is the same as intelligence.

If the people vote Remain in the referendum I hope will come soon, that undemocratic? Nonsense.

Meanwhile parliament is to have the meaningful vote for a third time, next week.

Your position is plain silly.

You’re scared of what the people would say if there was a peoples vote tomorrow. And so are all the othe other brexiteers and that’s why you’re against the vote.
