they are stupid, but unfortunately most people who vote in democracies are stupid and ignorant about their stupidity and what they know and exercise their vote and voice to the point of making democracy totally irrelevant, they nullify the potential benefits of having democracy.
Many people who pontificate about the state of the world and world issues are ignorant about the world and its real issues.
Modern society flatters modern people that they are educated and well informed beyond that which they are.
Its comments like these that make people like me feel that people should have to prove that they have understanding about a subject before they are given a vote over the issues that they are ignorant about (yet well prepared to give a damning war mongering opinion)
this would of course mean that there would not just be one vote for an overall generalisamo,
instead some referendums.....or maybe voting for the political role.
Party politics might have worked at the beginning, but now such an ediface has grown around it that party politics has become the biggest 'thing' in politics and argument and discussion pays heed to this first and foremost, its unhealthy and needs to be changed/shaken up
BUT people who are happy to be violently judgemental against other groups, Even when they should know themselves to not know a lot about it, should not be allowed to influence foreign policy or internal policy towards the treatment of others (ideally people would not vote on that which they knew themselves to be ignorant on, but people in democracies have been trained to not be as sociably selfless as to do this. as the current democratic format has trained the electorate to be stupidly selfish)
I was just going to ask about representation.
Almost a perfect storm of stupid
did anyone say Czech Republic?
most recent pictures of all three of them have them in head gear?
Slovaks? Those mums and wankers from Hungary?
