When I first became an Election Boycott Advocate (EBA) I thought about elections from the point-of-view of the voter. How can the voter achieve what he or she really and truly wants from within the ballot box?
It quickly became clear to me that “our dreams are too big for their ballot box” and that the voting booth offers us nothing as is evidenced by the wide chasm between our collective political desires and the laws and policies that are enacted to harm us here at home and millions more, worldwide. We citizens don’t authorize that, but that’s what we get.
But then, I turned my thinking around and I started to examine the Election Charade from the point-of-view of the Political Class. Then it became crystal clear just how much they need us to participate in the Charade they created that only serves them.
All they need us for on every Election Day is to simply show up and participate. What anyone actually does from inside the electoral contraption makes no difference whatsoever. They have assured this. A servant of the Ruling Elite will come into power. This is guaranteed.
Our participation suggests we support them, agree with them, like them and are in agreement with what they do — but, we don’t agree with them, like them or support what they do. There is no reason why we should aid them in making them appear legitimate.
They are de-legitimized without our participation.
Once I discovered how deeply dependent they are on us — Election Boycotting became a lot more purposeful.
I knew that this is the one area that those in power are utterly dependent upon us to show up for them to help uphold the illusion that they are legitimate in their rule over us.
They are crippled in their dependence on us, for our vote.
It is with great certainty that I know I must withhold my consent and encourage others to do likewise.
