Why I will not vote (part 2)

Posted by on March 22, 2015.

The problem with voting is that most people believe they are voting within a democracy. This is wrong — we do not have a democracy.

Ask yourself these four questions:

  • when was the last time that government policies changed when we changed the government?
  • when was the last time that a government honoured its manifesto pledges?
  • when was the last time you felt that government was more concerned about your problems than about business lobbyists and business profits?
  • when was the last time you asked a politician and got a straight answer?

The function of government is to create and maintain a system that funnels the proceeds of its people’s energy into the hands of a very few wealthy international families. Put simply, people are a resource manipulated by the owners of wealth through the means of government. By voting for any politician in any party you are voting to maintain that system. Votes will change nothing because the system is corrupt.

By not voting you will register a very tiny protest. If nobody votes, something will have to change. If nothing changes, there will eventually be a long and bloody revolution.

    He is deluded. He sings the Establishment song. Let’s imagine that the implication of what he suggests is achieved: 100% voting. Nothing will change. Indeed, nothing can change because the people will have endorsed a corrupt system. It doesn’t matter (we’re talking UK here) whether you vote Tory, Liberal or Labour — they all belong to the same club and dance to the same puppeteers. Voting, whether 20% or 100%, merely endorses and perpetuates those puppeteers.

    Imagine if nobody votes. Who will claim victory? Who will claim to lead the country? None of them will have any mandate to govern. None of them will be able claim democratic support. So what happens next? A coalition of all of the parties? But there are no members of parliament to join that coalition. The local Pirate Party candidate, or Monster Raving Loony Party applicant will have as much legitimacy as David Cameron.

    My guess would be Martial Law. The army would have to step in to maintain order. Now the top brass of the military is as much a part of the puppeteer Establishment as are the politicians — but by now the people will be motivated.

    What happens next I cannot guess. Will the troops take arms against the people? Probably, but that would lead to genuine revolution.

    I want a genuine revolution. I genuinely want a peaceful revolution. We will never get that by voting to endorse a rigged system designed to return moronic yes-men.
