(Demon)ocracy 

A democracy represents the collective interest of the public. But what is the public interest? One persons vote for is another persons against, nobody can vote in the public interest just in their own and they can only hope they are not alone. Outcomes will create friction. A clash of interests where there will always be a losing side. The people voted for Brexit why not let it happen? Taking it away would undermine the structure of which we are governed because everyone had a vote, a say. Without any unity divides fender and deepen. Frictions pushes the sides further away, the opposing voices getting smaller and less and less comprehendible. Their own opinions become amplified in the isolation. You can protest because things didn’t go your way; you just want your voice to be heard. But they can’t hear you anymore they are too far away.
