For those of you who are not interested in politics, and apparently thats statistically everbody, the Irish "No" to the EU Lisbon treaty is the gretest disaster in recent years. Whats even more troubling than the fact that 860.000 Irish can endanger the future of 450 million Europeans, is the agenda of the EU opponents: there is none. The most cited reason to vote "NO" is that the treaty was "too complicated" and people didn't know what is was all about. Instead of getting some information on an existential question and do some thinking on whats best for them, they just grabbed the feel-good factor of creating a mess for their political establishment. There are two words for this: "stupid" and "lazy". What's really freaking me out is that I am afraid this attitude prevails in most parts of our populations.
