Positively Stupid

Recommended Posts

Ah just remembered something I wanted to mention. Why do people support stupid things like immigration, war mongering, or the EU, when it''s so obvious they're bad ideas? It's because people prefer doing something stupid and positive, to doing something negative. So "Brexit" or "just stop the immigration" sound negative, and people just blank them out. We need to replace the stupid ideas by something progressive sounding, like an "alliance of independent world states" or "UN mandated safe zones in the middle east" to resettle refugees. It doesn't matter what they are, they an even be more stupid ideas than the alternatives, it just has to sound like we aren't moving backwards. Just arging it rationally isn't going to be enough.

1. More power for politicians - EU hasn't delivered as power migrated from national government, ergo Brexit.

2. Wonderful, quasi-colonial ways of helping underprivileged people - immigration. Immigration causes all sorts of unforeseen problems - Brexit.

If they had brains, they wouldn't become politicians.
