When you look at what has happened recently in the USA and the UK, you might well think that democracy may not be all it is cut out to be. Anyone with a little intelligence understands that Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump are complete imbeciles and downright liars.
It’s a very positive outcome for global democracy that they all got their way, for the simple reason that citizens from all countries will be much more careful with their vote once they see the absolute chaos and mass destruction that the above mentioned clowns will create!
My main reason for creating the Real Global Democracy website was to promote the idea that regardless of who got into power in any country, the citizens (and not a handful of parliamentarians) would be able to vote a few times a year on any changes to the constitution, and not just for Party A or B every five years.
Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron for now and to the intelligence of the French people, who are more interested in building bridges than walls. This path has a few problems as well, but not 10% of the alternative options – and anyone with half a brain knows this…
