The Democracy Delusion, UK.

UK Parliament final

From time to time, some topic fires me with enough passion to express a view. However, this website is really about readers and writers, so I’ve joined a website more appropriate for such outpourings. If you click on this link, it will take you to my first post on that website. It’s a longish piece on the state of democracy in UK. So, if you’re interested, make yourself a cuppa and have a read.

You can, if you’re so minded, place a comment either there or here. Up to you.

    Agree. We just try to keep informed and participate as much as we can. Times are scary and it’s disheartening that we as humans are such slow learners. Hanging on to hope!

      I think humans learn quite effectively as a whole, Bette. It’s the sociopaths who become politicians and leaders who don’t learn from history and continue to lead us into conflict to glorify their names. Cynical, me?

      I think it’s a problem in most of the world where democracy is supposed to be in force, Bette. Very few so-called democracies are actually democratic, unfortunately. Political unrest is a symptom of the growing realisation that most people are disenfranchised. One can only hope it doesn’t lead to the dangerous solution that revolution so often poses as a resolution!
