Life Is Good (Voting Is Insane)

Mark Davis at Strike the Root - insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Hence, voting is insane. Choose the path of peace, says Mr. Davis. Stop supporting the violence that is the state. [root]

There are three basic ways to persuade: personal example, rhetoric and force. Voting sanctions force. This simple fact must be trumpeted. Stop voting and become an example while offering peaceful discussion on the matter for those who choose to listen. Forget the masses and go personal. It is true that there is no silver bullet to take down the beast with one shot, but small actions can lead to expanding awareness and larger triumphs that may not be visible today.


Instead of seeking balance and harmony among self-interested individuals, as people who want peace do, the state and it minions seek conflict between individuals and their interests because the state can't survive peace. The survival of the state requires either war or the continuous threat of war. This includes wars against their own citizens such as the Wars on Drugs, Poverty, Terror, Child Abuse, and on and on. Peace is thus the enemy of the state and the state will not allow long periods of peace because the people would begin to see the little madmen behind the curtains pulling the levers. Elections are just regularly scheduled battles in the divide and conquer strategy that keeps the elite in power and the masses busy.


Rulers once used the clergy to place crowns on their heads in elaborate ceremonies designed to give the impression that God had ordained their divine right to rule. Today the popular election with its media circuses, "debates" and political parties serve this role to give the impression that The People have ordained their divine right to rule. Individuals who pretend to draw their authority from God or The People based on convoluted rituals are nothing but power hungry con-men. Shun them and take back your sovereignty.
