Isn’t democracy wonderful?
People cast votes and the majority decision is accepted as the will of the people.
If the state doesn’t like the outcome then force the people to keep voting until they get the right answer. [Lisbon]
If the state doesn’t like the outcome then it does everything in its power to nullify the vote, find legal loopholes and eventually resort to calling the winning side senile, racist or brain-dead. [Brexit]
It the state doesn’t like the probable outcome then send in the
storm troopers riot police to beat up the electorate and smash up the polling stations. [Catalonia]
What a fucking wonderful world we live in.
Democracy is dead.
Long live democracy.
