G. Merkys. The ghost of the referendum wanders around Lithuania? Or maybe VU TSPMI castrates spiritually?
Master’s student at the Institute of International Relations and Political Science (VU TSPMI), Vilnius University Delphi the portal explains the terrible evil of democracy, modernity and the well-being of society in general refer referendums.
Referendums are high risk. The people, understand, are as stupid as a three-year-old child, and can’t decide anything sensible on their own. In principle, can not. Everything that society and the state need will be “right” decided by the wise elected – the political bureau. Let’s say a small group of Dainius Žalimas-type characters, informally after consulting with the patriarch, Kubilius and Juknevičienė.
A young girl student, and her mindset as a Soviet 1936-1938. Communist youth. The future political scientist openly invites her to wipe into the Constitution of the Republic of Lithuania. It’s been very trendy lately.
Criticism of referendums denies the essence of representative democracy. Denial of interest hearings, public political discourse, dialogue and debate; pluralism of views and political scenarios; search for compromises and agreements.
True political leadership is denied, which, among other things, can be able to receive proposals to change the political agenda and address decision ideas, agree with opponents, persuade the masses.
All visions and concepts of how to live “rightly” will be thrown at us and will be strategized for us by a group of prominent priests… A kind of political-worldview conclave. And we are all disabled potato eaters, bill payers, toilet flushers…
Apparently, the experienced systematic reviews needed did not emerge as a volunteer to openly take on such an odious role as to deny the civilizational and political value of the referendum. The cunning then invited a naive graduate-communist student to that role.
If the Department of State Security (SSD) would normally like to be in Lithuania, then that spectacle should be interested in what should be introduced into the constitutional order of the Republic of Lithuania? Who seduced a naive student, who stands behind her and who conducts her?
