Re: So.....who are we voting for, today?
I saw this viewed upon in contemplation of the AV (alternative vote), so I thought I'd tack upon it rather than starting a new thread.
The voting system is a charade whereby the people are given a false belief they have an input in proceedings. The 'system' never changes because the government is a money-making corporation that is historically set upon a soulless - pre determined path no matter what brand of politics is in power. It is pure theatre to give the plebs an illusion they have an input in democracy (one could say it's fraud but I'd posit it strips the nation in a need to believe in a positive direction).
When you vote in new MPs you're literally voting in new directors of a company (United Kingdom Corporation - check out Dun and Bradstreet).
Think of voting as deciding upon the merits of various tentacles which ultimately lead back to the same self-serving snapping beast. You can waste a lifetime serving different ideas of what ultimately enslave you, or break free from this indentured position.
A life in politics is a wasted endeavour in a rigged game!
The people, beyond this reality, as within every sphere of history, need an insured stake so as to make their toiled investment make sense.
I think as much as anything rather than sitting around waiting for the state to deliver half-assed promises, why don't we tell them to fuck off by demonstrating most publically (with fliers and public speaking etc) why we're not voting in a rigged game etc. Lets seek degrees of autonomy and attack the state within organized communities.
