Study reveals half of young Europeans are skeptical about democracy

The results of the YouGov study, commissioned by the TUI Foundation and released Thursday, show that respondents from Germany and Greece were most in favor of democracy (62 and 66 percent), while France, Italy and Poland were the least convinced of its effectiveness (42, 45 and 42 percent).

    All those raw boned prairie boys who went over there to save them from hitler and stalin are mostly gone. They will have to find their own way to the destiny they deserve.

    It will not happen again.

    When I recall his parting words
    Must I accept his fate
    Or take myself far from this place

    I thought I heard a black bell toll
    A little bird did sing
    Man has no choice
    When he wants every thing

    We´ll rise above the scarlet tide
    That trickles down through the mountain
    And separates the widow from the bride

    Man goes beyond his own decision
    Gets caught in a mechanism
    And swindlers who works like kings
    And broke those who break everything

    The dark of night was swiftly fading
    Close to the dawn of day
    Why would I want him just to lose him again
    We´ll rise above the scarlet tide

    That trickles down through the mountain
    And separates the widow from the bride

      To be honest, it depends on what they consider the alternative. I suspect most Europeans were better off before WW1 than they are now. If what they have now is the result of democracy, it didn’t work.

  • Something about this doesn’t smell right.

    A chunk of Poles don’t like democracy?

    Hhmmm …

    The article somehow conflates democracy with interest in socialist EU membership, and is therefore meaningless.

    Why does it look there are always more women than men at these leftist demonstrations.
