Shall Britain leave European Union?

Popularity 1Viewed 3924 times 2016-6-21 11:46 |Personal category:social concern|System category:News| Britain, leaves, European, Union, voting

Several days later, people in Britain will decide if Britain leaves European Union or not. It is really a hard time for the people not only in Europe but also in the world because people in the world can imagine how strong effect it will bring to the world. All statistics about bad effects to economy, culture, community and so on which might happen have already been given by experts and politicians. Those who care for this great event are waiting for its result of public voting.

        Surely, we got to accept any result. British people have their own right to decide where to go. It is not easy to get European countries united. Many people in Europe have offered a lot to realize the dream of getting united. Becoming a union is absolutely stronger than any single country including the power of its economy, military, and so on. Looking back at the history in the world, the United States is a very good example. So I have several questions. Why do British people want to leave? Are they selfish? As we know European Union are facing lots of problems right now. Why do they not think about how to look for solutions together to solve the problems in this Union? Leaving is British people”s best choice? There is saying in China “We are in the same boat”. Only can thinking together and finding out a better way together help European Union move forward.

      What do you think about it?

I do not think Britain will leave the EU even if more people vote to leave. If Leave did win there would be a system in place to rig the voting. I do not believe the result of the last UK election or the Scottish referendum. In my opinion both of those votes have been rigged to give the result that the powers that be are seeking. They will claim that it was a close vote but Remain just won.

No matter the result it seems to me that a class war is coming. A Remain vote will make UK more unstable for the future. This vote reminds me of the Greek vote where the wealthy voted against the Greek poor and won. A western class war is on the cards in the future in my opinion. The wealthy of each western nation are seen as enemies of their poor citizens by the poor citizens which are about half apparently according to media but our numbers are much stronger than media or votes would have people believe.

HailChina!: I do not think Britain will leave the EU even if more people vote to leave. If Leave did win there would be a system in place to rig the voting. I do  ...
You have mentioned the background for voting. It might be a class war. I'm very interested in it.

Yeah. I do not think the referendum was a good idea. It only makes feelings worse. Another example of why it is wrong to encourage the public to interest themselves in politics. All modern western democracy does is make the down trodden  majority see their minority upper class countrymen as enemies.

And a lot of poor westerners might kill you if you tried to steal just a few hundred dollars from them - so it is a worry that they are increasingly seeing the upper class as their enemies that are responsible for their miserable standards of living.And they see how good things are for their enemies that are voting to keep the poor under heel.

    Thus, an admission of your own stupidity.

  • Will dropping of population restrict China’s development? 2018-12-20 04:52

    The environment does matter, but I doubt the population of over 1 billion would drop to 0.1 billion so quickly. I habitually invite students to see these issues globally, and that way to habitually put comments about China's policies into a globally influential context, as is appropriate for a people who sit in the UN Security Council and who have significant gold reserves. A small % of people are concerned for the world facing water shortages. The global population has been doubling in half the time since the 1700s without any wars making a dent in the population explosion, and that is obviously the direct result of mismanaged banks making huge quantities of money freely available so people too easily live indoors and raise so many children. During the past few centuries, national policies were to increase populations because of fear of war with a neighbouring country. But in the past decade, we hear of military leaders in some countries starting to openly wish, online, that they could address threats to the environment as national threats to safety. However, my friends in philosophy point out that the evidence of natural disasters has not convinced some policy makers around the world. Of course, China is known for making green cities: a step toward sustainable urban development. Imagine a few countries in the world able to re-regulate banks and manage the economy to reduce the population explosion, manage international relations to live without fear of war, and so manage to lead international care for sustaining our environment. Walter Rothschild wrote a book listing extinct species of birds, so that our population explosion crowds many species out of life is known to bankers. I hope survival issues matter to policy makers in any country.
