Have not posted on brexit for awhile. My anger is now spent and my position is now a simple one. I think many of those who have voted for brexit have been misled, some are just idealists, a few are romantics, some are racists, some are idiots and the rest are just plain stupid, for not acknowledging or realising how their good intentions can be hijacked by xenophobia. Good luck trying to figure out which are which. That said, I don’t believe in a second referendum, or a second chance to vote. I moved from a country that suppresses so much free speech that democracy is hardly functioning. I value democracy and the vote. Every one of us is boundedly rational when casting the vote anyway so there is no such thing as perfect information and the future, being uncertain, will always make information incomplete. So while I am angry at brexiters (and will still call them idiots), and angry at David Cameron for calling for a referendum, I accept the outcome. Even if I think its a bad decision, I acknowledge that only history will judge it for certain. Self efficacy
always kicks in and in the case of Britain, whatever that (hopefully) doesn’t kill us, could make us stronger. That is how we have become the democratic society we are today.
