Brexit and the Young

It seems the young demographic voted to remain while their grandparents, voted to leave.

This has led to the view that as the oldies are not going to be around when the UK finally exits and the elite forecasted belief that Brexit will mean an economic catastrophe for the UK, then the over 60’s should not be allowed to vote on issues that are well in the future.

This reminds me of the saying that if you are young you have a heart and believe in socialism, but if you still believe in socialism when you are older, then you have no brain.

I suspect that when they get older they might slowly realise that their parents and grandparents were right after all, and the leaving the EU was the right decision.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.

    In the Scottish referendum the older generation was blamed for voting STAY.

    In the EU referendum the older generation is being blamed for voting LEAVE.

    It’s just seems like more divide and conquer noise.

    The interesting bit is that full spectrum dominance based upon herding the younger generation of twit-ers and farce-bookers hasn’t actually achieved dominance when it comes to voting.

    But it’s an excellent rabble rousing device that can feed the old media narratives.

    And you have to remember the poor little dears have been fully exposed to EU propaganda porn for their entire lives.

    • I just watched the movie “The Ghost” directed by Roman Polanski and actors Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor. Politics of the more arcane type. The observation that many seem to only see what they believe needs to be factored into any analysis. It’s simply cultural marxism when you analyse it. But as Jane Marple might observe, the world’s changing but some haven’t changed with it.
