Colombia’s Brexit moment as politicians misjudge popular anger at Farc amnesty | World news | The Guardian:
we must design better ways of running a country especially in a democracy which has been pushed by the west as the 'gold standard', which I hope is the case, but given Brexit, PossibleTrumpfGate and now 'democratic rejection of FARC' agreement, maybe most of us might not be asking the right question.
Could the right question be, we must empower and HOLD personally accountable the politicians for their actions focusing on delivering:
1.) Rule of law/Peace not war
2.) Safe & Secure Home
3.) enough food
4.) ways for populations to work hard to improve their lives and protecting their fruits of labour
5.) deliver appropriate regulations/punishments/enforcement for those that disrupt/threaten 1-4 above.
Agreement with FARC is sadly the only first step and sadly when framed incorrectly, by government that people might not have best trust, I guess we cannot blame the people to 'vote' NO..
Lets send our good wishes for the populations of Columbia, at least maybe in a tragic way, they are fairing much better than in Syria?
