War will never cease until babies begin to come into the world with larger cerebrums and smaller adrenal glands.
Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die.
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
John F. Kennedy
To take those three quotes in order, a few thoughts:
- Is it a characteristic of our political class that they are born of a genital deficiency and are thus unable to acknowledge that which is readily available on the web – ie, FlexCit)? With all their talk about limiting immigration; just why are they so ‘blind’ to the ability, within the EEA, of invoking Article 112 of that agreement, so they can limit that and so much more?
- Where the declaration of war is concerned, it appears that the perogative so to do lies with Parliament and thus our political class. This begs the question just who does the fighting and provides the funds – the 650 of our political class. or the people – whether that be those in the armed forces or those that provide, by means of taxation or contributions thereof? Therefore should not the decision and thus the agreement to declare war, lie with the people?
- That once the idea of direct democracy becomes more widely known – and thus the benefits of same – whereby the people recognise their ability to control those who have held us in their ‘iron grip’, thus ‘turn the tables’; are not the 650 and their acolytes not making violent revolution inevitable? Are they so dense they have forgotten the lessons of history – some of that quite recent?
Our political class – and their acolytes – appear to believe they have the right to decide, through our system of democratised dictatorship, the make-up of the society in which we, the people, wish to live. I say there is only one group that can decide that – and that is the indigenous people of the United Kingdom.
Bring on Direct Democracy – and until a few other bloggers recognise that and the foregoing, they are p*****g in the wind! Witness those who would appear, only too happily, to anoint one who voted to remain in the European Union should become our next Prime Minister – not that her opponent is also qualified to hold that post. Which begs a further question: should, if we had democracy per se, the appointment of any prime minister not be that for a decision of the people?
