I sign several petitions each week.
Of late I have come to realise that voting is very much like signing petitions.
Both are indicative, and both rely upon large numbers of people to take part in this most basic form of protest.
A traditional Anarchist Viewpoint.
I’ve always taken the traditional Anarchist line, None of the Above, as the only choice is between a party of crooks and a party of bandits.
In any case, I take it as Highly Irresponsible to Negate our Individual Responsibilities, by handing decision making over to a bunch of self serving politicians.
To quote the quote: – Guy Fawkes: The only man to enter Parliament with honest intentions.
On the other hand I’ve spent most of my life as a campaigner, or what these days is refereed to as engaging in activism.
Yet things change.
For the first time in my life I have registered to vote.
This is in order to do so in the forthcoming EU election.
It is because I feel so incensed by the whole Brexit disaster, that I want to do everything possible to stop it from happening.
Though it’s the push to stopping Brexit by a referendum which really needs doing.
I’ll still be out leafleting and taking part on other forms of protest, but will engage in one other form of protest against Brexit – voting.
