Democracy at work
AFTER we see and hear the responses (from the media and individuals) to the outcome of the recent ‘Brexit’ Poll, and our own general election, it is obvious that ‘the people’ are too stupid to understand how a democracy works and /or to take the responsibility of casting ‘your’ vote.
Thus we can conclude that the ‘democracy system’ is not working anymore.
Howls of protest and the demand for a new referendum in England after ‘the people’ clearly voted for ‘exit’ (52% to 48%) smacks of spitting the dummy in the dirt because the minority didn’t get their way (and/or didn’t understand the ramification), - totally pathetic.
In our general election, getting the result of instability and the inability to make necessary changes in governing the country for the next three years, when ‘the people’ voted for a hung parliament and an ‘impossible’ Senate, is not the fault of the politicians – it is the fault of the voters and it is totally their responsibility.
The ‘people’ just need to grow up and accept any consequences. We (the people ) voted for it, and are responsible for it. That’s what a democracy is about.
Maybe only those citizens who, can understand any ramifications of their voting, can take the responsibility of their actions (the way they vote) and can accept the outcome (the will of the people), should be allowed to vote in future. Fin Forbes Cannonvale
