The UK has voted in favor of leaving the European Union and now everywhere there is an uncertainty of future. I personally feel that referendum is not a solution to every policy decision in a democracy. People often confuse democracy with an ochlocracy. Democracy doesn't mean that people have the right in deciding all the policy decisions.
Again, the Brexit has shown us that masses are often stupid in making policy decisions. The strength of a democracy lies in the ability to hear the diverse voices of masses, not the ability of masses to take the decision.
Brexit is a perfect example of this, and Google Trends totally defends my point here. Yesterday, one day after the poll results of Brexit referendum were out, Google Trends showed a shocking or rather unfortunate result.
Google Trends from the UK showed the most asked questions about the European Union. And, these were the questions people from the UK searched on Google after they voted for Brexit.

Isn't it quite late to ask, "What is the EU?"
This is exactly what happens when you try to run a democratic state with referendums and propositions.

So, do you think the decision of Brexit was right? Do you support referendum in a democracy?
