futile to reason someone out of a thing that he was not reasoned into"
A bit like Brexit then.
'Most people', didn't vote for us to join the EEC / EU / whatever and
so have lived with it as one of those things.
So, give them the idea that something that was mostly transparent /
irrelevant to them was the big bad wolf, and that things are going to
get worse because of what they are intending to do or how better off
we will be if we kill the big bad wolf (and mud / fud sticks), some of
the great unwashed will fall for that sort of thing, pick their side
and can't be reasoned into justifying their choice.
They can't in most cases because there is no 'reasoned' reason, just a
load of crystal ball predictions, gullibility and 'beliefs'. ;-(
I'm not suggesting that leaving the EU might not actually be a good
thing for 'most people', all I'm suggesting is that most of us who are
adamant it will be have yet to convince most who haven't heard those
voices in their hears or believed what has now been mostly proven to
be lies and FUD in the first place.
Further complicate the facts by promising the great unwashed that they
promise to act on what should have only been an advisory poll and you
can pretty well wave goodbye to any level of real democracy.
