Trying to implement policy when the majority strongly oppose it is foolhardy.



As much as I am not satisfied with much that occurs in 'politics', for me, the notion of 'the majority' knowing what's best in so many instances goes beyond 'foolhardy' to 'making me throw up a little in my mouth'.

Give me an informed, enlightened, engaged, participating electorate, and then 'the majority' has the cachet to make your statement reasonable.

Until then, no. I may have a healthy cynicism about 'politics' and what our 'politicians' provide on a seemingly constant basis, but my cynicism about the general lack of aptitude and reliability on the part of the average constituent far outstrips it.

'Many people don't have a qualified opinion about their own lives.'
