Why Voting is Evil

Our so-called “democratic system” is just as immoral as a dictatorship. Participation makes you complicit.

The State can take life, liberty, and property from anyone if the 51% decides it. That which you would never do, (like imprison or kill your neighbor for using cannabis) you support “your” government in doing by voting. You then enable it by paying for it.

Is this any way to run a society? Is this how you want to be treated?

Governments are built on theft and aggression.

If you complain about theft and detainment, you can only complain to their own courts, paid for by themselves, who then decide whether your complaint is legitimate or not. It’s like letting the thief and murderer decide whether it was ok to steal from you.

Jesus had it right when he said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Why is that so difficult?

Do we want someone to come to you, guns drawn, to take your property or arrest you for: smoking cannabis? hiring a prostitute? selling raw milk? growing organic vegetables? giving a massage without a license?

“Well, *I* don’t break any laws,” you say. Oh really? In the great book 3 Felonies a Day, Harvey Silvergate describes how a normal citizen going to work, paying taxes, doing everything right commits, on average, three felonies a day without even realizing it. So you are a criminal already.

Common law–originally designed to prevent theft and aggression–has been completely corrupted until now ‘everything is forbidden which is not expressly permitted’.

Then why do we support (via tax dollars, silence = acquiescence, and voting) this violent system that completely ignores and even persecutes our brothers and sisters, knowing that we are next?

And I haven’t even described why your vote means nothing anyway, how politicians will do what they want, influenced by special interests.

Most people do not vote now, and they have it right. Voting will not change the nature of the system. Ceasing to believe in the system will cause the system to disappear… Ceasing to support it will cause it to evaporate.

Let’s find a new way. A way that listens to everyone’s voice and needs. A way to connect and not to separate.
