Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Power is for the powerful, educated, and shrewd guys. The others are the work force. Sounds cynical? But realistic! From the dawn of human civilization, there has been differentiation in society, social classes, and every person knew his or her place.

Sir, you just gave your opponents a new argument to keep your country out of the EU: complete lack of education in the ways of democracy.

I sincerely hope you are not a representative sample of the bulgarian "elite", because in that case, we have enough trolls in the EU as it is, equally and widely represented in all countries.

Power is for the powerful
What is the source of power? How is it exercised? How do you give power to those the powerful, since they already have it? How did they get to being powerful in the first place? Where they born powerful?

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
