Political discourse is divisive toilet-speech. Political parties are corporate management teams. Politicians do not live in the societies they shape. Presidents are spokesmen for corporate interest. Patriotism is the ****** of Stockholm Syndrome. Advocacy for People cannot fight lobby money. Millions upon millions of mouthpieces for Control, Blind to the iron hands that crush us in their grip. Talking points are hand-me-downs for sheep: the arguments have already been had for you; why think when you can simply bleat and repeat?
The only way is OUT: not citizen but sovereign.
Participation in elections constitutes what, to my mind, is an unreasonable vote of faith for a system whose failure is confirmed by its rotten fruit.
