Re: Democracy of one

The problem with allowing the Sheeple to vote, is that most of them don't appreciate the impact of what they are voting for.

Sigh. Yes, 50% of the electorate will always be less intelligent than the average voter. (That's a definition of average )

And our political rulers will always think of everyone who does not agree with them as "sheeple". For me, the key reason for voting the way I did was that in the UK system, we get regular chances to kick out our representatives when they cease to represent us. In the EU system, they aren't representatives but appointees, and we cannot kick them out, and the corruption will never reduce. Eventually the EU will look like the Austro-Hungarian Empire. (in a century or so, if its rulers can hold it together for that long)

And it will then end just as badly.
