What the Brexit Referendum Has Proven About Democracy and Human Rights

On 23rd June 2016, slightly more than a half of the people of Britain has voted in favour of leaving the European Union. The main reason concerning them is the entering of immigrants, or also known as ‘wogs’ by the Brits, that has been jeopardising the economic activities for U.K. citizens.

Anyone of the EU nationality can move freely across borders within the region with only minimal papers and forms. The wogs have been filling the continent since the 1950s. Xenophobia is fuelled much more by the trumped-up ‘Islamic’ terrorism. The EU also views London as a financial saviour for them along few other countries.

The Friday that follows the referendum shows a free fall in financial markets, which provokes a threat to global recession. The British Pound did not escape the plunge too, as it loss more than 10% of its value.

Foreigners (enough of calling them wogs), especially from poorer countries like Poland, are going to suffer as they are going to be dispatched back to their homeland, without any source of income. The truth is the truth no matter how much it hurts, with that said, Britain had just made a decision to not help those who are in need. The fundamental purpose of the EU is to promote better political, economy and social harmony among the nations of Western Europe, and U.K. washed their hands from participating in it just because 52% of voters are in a voice with Brexit.

That proves the incompetency of the much-glorified and proud idea of democracy.  With the decision only being made through the majority, other ideas are stepped aside and the needy ones are discriminated. Doesn’t this sound like primary school children fighting? More than a million citizens claimed that they hadn’t think through and well about what could happen if they act on their selfishness alone. Most people in the favour of Brexit made their decision based on fear rather than logical thinking. As a result, the inhumane decision ‘wins’.

In my view, I believe that democracy has the potential to oppress people. The better solution would be consultations and discussions, because everyone can not only choose their decision but also share their reasons and views. The people also should be one, with unanimity. And again, there shouldn’t be any ‘win’ or ‘lose’ in politics, but only what is right.
