Time to face facts. Democracy is terrible and it must be stopped when it allows other people the ability to control their destiny. Hey, that’s our job.
Take Brexit – they totally got it wrong because they simply failed to understand EU membership was so good for us – by which I mean “us,” as in the important people who live in cities and use terms like “farm-to-table” yet have never been on a farm. Our fellow transnational socialist technocrats in Great Britain tried to explain to the normals why unaccountable bureaucrats in a foreign capital should be dictating the smallest details of their lives, from the shape of their bananas to the size of their condoms. They refused to listen. That’s crazy! I mean, why would anyone need anything but an extra small condom anyway?
And their betters tried to show them how their so-called concerns about unrestricted foreign immigration and its consequences on their incomes, the nature of their communities, and their safety were really just a smokescreen for the rabid racism that lurks beneath the surface of anyone who isn’t an urban elitist like us. Did they listen? They turned down the chance for unrestricted immigration from Turkey! I mean, how could that possibly go wrong? It’s not like there is some kind of looming threat out there from organized groups of foreigners with a murderous ideology that has sworn our destruction.
I cannot help but notice that the Brexpocalypse the Left warned us about has not come to pass. The NYSE is fine. The Euro is fine. The Brent index is fine. The FTSE is fine. The pound sterling declined a bit, but that just makes things cheaper.
And here in America, people are voting for that terrible Donald Trump instead of the wonderful Hillary. It’s crazy – just look at her track record of achievement at being female and raising awareness of stuff!
I will not be voting for Trump myself, but I think one of the main delights of a Trump victory would be watching the left go even more hyperbolically insane than they are now. It’s difficult to imagine the left becoming even more insane, but it will be fun to watch.
