Lol, they're so salty about Brexit. If it had gone like they wanted, they would have written that it was a great victory for Democracy.

Think about it, the guardian wants to surrender your democratice voice to the EU, and after that failed. Just giving up your voice in general.

The regressive left keeps reaching new levels of retard.

They are children, they demand a farther figure which is why the left keep wanting to give their power away to others.

This is what happens to long time far lefties. They go full schizophrenic. I'm sure the article made perfect sense to him and other schizo lefties.

or they know people are angry and using the opportunity to push their fascist/socialist agenda.

Nothing to do with fascism. Fascism was the system in place in Italy. The leftists get tense when it's pointed out to them that what they call "Fascism" was actually "Nazism". And they get downright livid when it's pointed out "Nazism" is short-hand for National Socialism.

Either that, or they actually believe in nothing but getting more power and are always thinking up new lies.

I couldn't read it all, it was just too much double think to take in.

What I got from it was that essentially the author cites a study that reveals many people are dissatisfied with their governments and then goes on to say a dictatorship would be more preferable ("...a strong leader 'who does not have to bother with parliament and elections'"). However, the author still believes that this is somehow a democracy. Ironically, the author sums up the problem with their thinking in the article when they go on to say, "It would appear that people like the idea of democracy but loathe the reality."

It's amazing they can see the interest in politics rise with the antipathy for politicians and fail to see the relation. Apparently simple cycles like "We Hate because we Know, we Dig because we Hate, we Know because we Dig" are too complicated for his little mind. Much better to draft massive juries so you can pretend you're doing something about the unrest than to actually address it.

I couldn't get past the headline. It's like their dictionary only has one word in it: "feminism." The rest of it is empty pages with the phrases such as "kill all cis male."

In other news money is bad for business, and rights will undo the work done in the civil rights era.

Ok, it's around ten times as long as it needs to be, but it boils down to:

  • Brexit was bad, and proves voters are uninformed

  • Therefore elections and voting clearly doesn't work

  • So we should randomly pick members of the population to serve in office and inform them, so they vote for what we want them to

It actually made some points I fully agree with about democracy being a poor guarantor of individual liberty, then completely fails to address them. Why would a randomly selected politician be less likely to vote my rights away than a popular selection?

My Lord. They didn't just drink the Koolaid. They've filled the pool with it and are rubbing each other with it.

Guardian and HuffPost are one in the same quality-wise.
