can anyone please explain to me why it is bad that crimea might want to join russia?
i thought that the whole point of democracy was that the people (demos) choose their form of rule (kratos)?
so if the crimean MPs represent the wishes of the crimean people, shouldn't that be the end of it?
so why don't we let them have a referendum, like scotland, like the falklands, and the majority decision stands.
or am i missing something?
