I've always believed that the solution is to stop voting in members of the bourgeoise or ruling class into parliament... but it seems like the candidates for voters are always industry owners or rich bureaucrats. There need to be more middle class members in Parliament. The rich are too disconnected from the needs of society.
The EU Parliament, in my view, is unlawful in the first place. It received mandate from the different governments in the EU, but the constituents of those governments had no say, no vote. Now they are expected to vote for members of this new government. Participation in it is already being coerced.Originally Posted by Harry Guerrilla
People will vote because they are told to. Period. The average voter is not aware that their freedoms and prosperity are the way they are because it is written on a sheet of paper somewhere. They take for granted what they have. It is for this reason that the developed Western world has much more to lose than nations who are infant democracies or having civil unrest.
Furthermore, people don't know what popular protest means anymore. The majority have to take to the streets or nothing is going to happen. Minorities are easily put down by riot squads and government thugs.
