Sorry - I don't think you're realising* my main point - about the seemingly inexorable move from representative democracy to a system of technocratic government.I'm not accusing you of marxism. I'm accusing you of the same trick that Living Marxism / Spiked pulled. I.E. My idea of a perfect world is unachievable therefore I'm justified in being a shitlord about everything that everyone else considers might be good.
If you're willing to overlook that move, management of populations by bankers, rather than by the population managing banks, in return for slightly less shit economic baubles then bully for you.
I'm hardly being a "shitlord about everything everyone else considers good" - I've explicitly said I'm a fence-sitter - not a leaver.
Frankly, if that is your response to a moderate fence sitter who holds liberal values and believes in democracy for and by the people, then no wonder the leave brigade stick their fingers up at you and want out at any cost.
It's "remain at any cost" for you, it seems. Especially when simply pointing out very real issues about governance and freedom results in a round of attack-the-messenger...
