Post Truth Politics 006: #Democracy | The Hungry Rabbit on WordPress.com
It is a sad reality that democracy has been consigned to the world of post truths. After WW2 and the Cold War one would think that the clarity of what democracy actually is would be evident to everyone, however, every time I bring up the word with a lefty liberal they argue.
What is the definition of ‘democracy’?
1a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority
The definition is really very clear — rule of the majority.
So when the majority vote for Brexit 52% by 48% — a 4 percentage point difference which is significant — one would expect in a civilised democracy that has been active for several 100 years, that this would not be an issue.
What one could never have anticipated is that the word democracy amongst the 48% had some how morphed into meaning the right to challenge the majority vote. Yes, indeed, the left liberals actually believe that it is their democratic right to subvert a democratic vote at any cost. (The call of Marxism here must surely be evident even to themselves)
There was a time when this would be recognised as a fascist revolution — a key fascist concept being:
Another element of fascism is its elitism. Salvation from rule by the mob and the destruction of the existing social order can be effected only by an authoritarian leader who embodies the highest ideals of the nation. This concept of the leader as hero or superman, borrowed in part from the romanticism of Friedrich Nietzsche, Thomas Carlyle, and Richard Wagner, is closely linked with fascism’s rejection of reason and intelligence and its emphasis on vision, creativeness, and “the will.”
Here in we see the mentality of the left regarding democracy — salvation from rule by the mob.
The immediate reaction after Brexit and Trump from the left was that the people who voted for them were thick, stupid, had no idea what they were doing — the mob were out of control in their view. They established themselves as elitists (another characteristic of Fascism) and have since pursued a course of subverting the democratic vote seeking their own salvation.
Of course the left dismiss this and point the finger at President Trump, however, in this modern world we see that there are no single leaders of ideologies or political movements in the West. Even the ‘right’ have no single leader, they merely support Trump as a person who they see as achieving their goals of individual and national identity and will turn on him just as quick if they perceive him as a threat to democracy.
What does embody these Fascist ideals is the EU which, for the left, rises above mortality and stands as a monument of fascist values that will persist through time regardless of the humans who perpetuate it. That makes them feel safe — a key objective when it was conceptualised to ensure the people would vote for it, vote for totalitarianism.
It is in effect immortal, and the human is merely there to serve its goals set out by the founding father ( The PanEuropean Union). That the EU is propagated as the ‘good thing, a good ideal’ rather than a person, is equally if not more dangerous as it immediately devolves any remnants of personal responsibility that an individual working for it might have, to the highest levels.
To serve the cause rather than be the cause will always come with the caveat that ‘I was told what to do, I followed orders’ just as the imams, Muslim extremists, bishops, priests and all their followers have done for 2 millennia — justifying all sorts of horrific acts on the premise of an ideal.
Further to this attacking it becomes a challenge as instead of one target to remove from power, it becomes many, again much like a religion is organised to persist through time into having no one target but many, so the EU will always have a replacement to serve its needs.
Set against the contrast of Brexit and Trump, it is becoming increasingly clear the degree to which this Marxist cancer has spread in our society. The road ahead to free ourselves of it is rocky and filled with peril and may last for many many years with out being ever fully successful, however, the alternative is not worth even considering.
