True, but voting is not necessarily a bad thing. If I vote for someone who’s only stated purpose is to downsize the government, then my vote is justified and I am no less an anarchist.(via maxvoluntarist)
THINKSQUAD: I’m always confronted with;
1. Isn’t it better to vote for the lesser of evils than not vote? If we didn’t vote, wouldn’t we be at (bigger) risk of evil elites’ coming into power?
2. If voting does legitimize the whole process, but then, how could we change the system? Shouldn’t we start a political party that promises to gradually abolish the government? How else could “Minarchy/Anarchy be instituted but through political means?”
Answer: Imagine that it is the Klan that you are trying to change instead of government. Would you join in the lynching’s thinking that would change the Klan?
If the doctor told you that you had Cancer, would you tell the doctor, no don’t get rid of it all, I still want a little Cancer.
