Denmark's PM Lars Løkke Rasmussen wants referendum on EU defense relationship
“We have to have the discussion and that must naturally done with a view to holding a referendum,” Rasmussen said.
The decision to opt out of the EU’s joint defence work was made via a 1993 referendum on the Edinburgh Agreement, which granted Denmark four exceptions to the Maastricht Treaty. Denmark had rejected the treaty in another referendum the previous year.

- the divide between #others and #rich increasing, with the rich isolating themselves even more from #society
- rapid degrading of #humanrights (police states, information control and lockdown, erosion of free speech)
- large parts of the poorest areas in the world becoming uninhabitable
- increase of #wars in destabilized areas as the richer countries fight for resources and fight to keep even more poor people trying to save themselves
- closing of #borders
- lots of risky #geoengineering of the #Earth
These are the kinds of things people are voting for by not choosing leaders who promise to fight #climatechange, the number one #danger to human society as a whole. The only way society will survive is to either fight climate change together or implement the above. Humans are #selfish creatures, so it's becoming clear we're not able to collectively make the good choice.
And the rich will keep on living the good life because the masses are fine with that. What a great future we're voluntarily putting ourselves into.
