Voting for the Lesser Evil

house-of-cardsI do not believe in voting for the lesser evil. I believe in voting for the whomever is the enemy of the status quo.

The status quo is the establishment, the oligarchy. The plutocrats. The Powers That Be. The status quo is the enemy.

And to protect itself it will say and do anything to convince you that whomever is trying to beat them is so much worse.

They will parade a list of horribles about their opponent. He is a bigot. He is a misogynist, a fascist, a xenophobe, unstable, crazy, a loose canon.

You are expected to buy this propaganda.

You are expected to repeat this propaganda.

You are expected to believe this propaganda.

You are expected to embrace the status quo.

You are expected to be very afraid of change. Afraid of the unknown. You are expected to trust the devil you know.

Here’s the deal: If we tell the establishment to fuck off, the whole thing comes down like a house of cards.

Join me in kicking it over?

 

 

Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

  1. Voting isn’t something that is done once a year or every two years or every four years or when inspiration arises. It is actually done every day. We might think of our personal choices as elections. Thus, we are confronted with voting each time we affect a change inside or outside ourselves through thought or action. Many of us exempt ourselves from developing our conscience. We might extend moral consideration to the canine, but deny it to the bovine we (and our preferred pets) eat. Some of us may choose to be satisfied with owning three pairs of shoes, while others require dozens or hundreds for their confidence.

    Are people getting their values from politicians? I think most people support politicians whom they think share their values–but this is a dangerous projection to make.

    The politicians aren’t indoctrinating our children before they are of age to vote–the people are. I am more fearful of my neighbor who keeps three canines imprisoned in his backyard than I am of Hillary or Bernie or Donald.

  2. A revolution makes sense but it can’t happen at least now:
    – not enough people who agree
    – in animal rights, anyway, too disorganized
    – power and money is on the other side.
