The U.K. Government and the elites suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of the lowly “ordinary” Brits, and in interviews since, those that voted to leave in the recent EU referendum have said they have no regrets, only feelings of relief!
I have never known of an English politician/member of Parliament to have such a groundswell of public support, to the point that they have demonstrated their belief in him by calling (screaming) his name (Jeremy Corbyn), in defiance of the political establishment that seeks to remove him. I am not aware that ANY other politician in the UK, certainly not in recent history, that has enjoyed this experience. (Still being belittled by the mainstream media however).
As for the rest?… “How are the mighty (“the usual suspects”) fallen!”, and in their attempts to try to hang on (to the “same old same old”) they have torn the country apart, selfishly! They would rather see their country, and the poor who ousted them, destroyed, rather than admit defeat.
And to cap it all, England (“Great” Britain) has suffered an ignominious defeat at the hands of the smallest nation in Europe in the Euro 2016 football championship.
Being humbled is not a bad thing, it is a good thing. “Pride (always) comes before a fall” anyway, you can expect it!
So, “what next?” – A clean sweep, a fresh start, with new blood, is what is required! Let “the old” rot and decay in their unwillingness to change. Leave them behind and move on to new vistas and possibilities!
That might sound “scary”, it will be “uncharted territory”, new, different, but almost ANYTHING would be better than what has been suffered so far by so many!
A less arrogant, more humble attitude should rule the day now. A slow and steady rebuilding by, and with, those who are brave enough to go for it, but on a new and different foundation! Start from the bottom up!
On this point, let’s ignore and ditch “the Monarchy” while we’re at it! They serve no useful purpose. They are certainly NOT “serving” “their subjects” (is THAT what we are called?), other than to sit on top of a people as a huge burden that they don’t need, part of “the elite”, which THEY believe is “by divine right”! (They refer to themselves as “The Firm”, believe it or not!) Er, GOD DIDN’T “give” them any more “rights” than you or me! In fact He says “the meek shall inherit the earth”, so “stick THAT in your pipe and smoke it”!
Anyway… Look to the lowly, the meek, the humble! This is where you will find TRUE “leadership”.
The average nurse, farmer, parent, teacher, service person, cook, builder, plumber, carpenter, electrician, seamstress, etc, etc know more about “government” than most of the “career politicians” (THEIR “career” that is) all put together! So, start from the bottom up! Organise from families, to neighbours, to communities, to villages, to towns. (It would be better that there were no big cities, but it’s too late for that. The same principles can be applied WITHIN the cities however).
EVERYONE would be involved in their OWN government! EVERYONE would see the rewards of their OWN labours, immediately, at hand, and be pleased and satisfied with them, rejoicing, with their neighbours, in appreciation and respect for each one’s contribution, no matter how “great” or “small”, “from each according to their ability, to each according to the need”. Simple!
The people could choose any “leaders” they might need from among their own, small scale, not a nationalised centralised “government”. They wouldn’t even be called “leaders”, but those acknowledged to have the skills and expertise in their various fields could be asked to “manage” or “administrate” those fields, as needed, if needed. Whatever mandate they are given would be decided by the people, in council or committee, and nothing would be carried out or applied without a consensus and agreement by those affected.
This is not “a new idea”, it just hasn’t been properly applied, yet!
This is practical Christianity, believe it or not, and how Jesus’ Kingdom will be set up and established on earth after His return, so we may as well get used to it, now, don’t you think?
The alternative would be to join “the other group” in “the other place” for following their “One World Leader” there!
“It’s not rocket science folks!”, just make the right choices and decisions and you’ll be fine!
‘Nuff said! 😊
