No...he said don't participate.
Big difference, and you aren't the only one who used that inference erroneously.
I have not participated in many things, but I did not ignore them.
If we all decided tomorrow, or even if 25% of the population decided.... to not use money
anymore, not use banks, and just basically tell the government to shove it sideways, we will do it without you, they would be buggered, plain and
Hell, if all the people who DIDN'T
, vote actually stood up and gave them the high hard one, they would be screwed, since that is the true
majority in any any given "Democracy"....
Face facts...governments usually win by a margin of roughly 10-15%.
Considering only 40% or less of the eligible voters even vote, that means most majority governments represent at best, 25-28% of the populace.
You want a change and a revolution?
If every non voter (me included...I don't ignore it, I just choose not to participate in a rigged system designed to give me the illusion of choice)
stepped forward and said collectively, GO F&&k YOURSELF you inept, greedy, selfish, bastards (and that goes for those who voted them in, thinking you

For the government/parent types, they lose their reason for existence.
Survival is a powerful driving force.
We don't really need it.
They know it, but they propagandise continually that we do.
The child/citizen does not want to face the reality of being on their own.
So they believe that government is there to help them and protect them (as evidenced by a poll I seen earlier today that say's 55% or something of
Americans believe the government will be there to save them in a disaster)
even though evidence of past calamity shows that to be not only folly, but completely freaking stupid...
Yet, they are at the polls, every time, voting their little hearts out for big daddy... 'cause he knows what's best, and I'm an informed
Bullsquat you are.
If you are at the polls actively voting for one of any of the major, minor, or even wildcard candidates, you are not only not informed, you are
So, on the count of three I will snap my fingers and you will wake up...
Hold on, someone is at the door....
