Voting is wrong, and parties suck.
And I'm not being facetious or sarcastic. I understand the longer argument behind that.
There is still the question of what is to be done about it beyond 'outing' and shunning the posers.
.... I would still like to see a 'higher' / more general level explication from Cueball about the connection between the 'raw' [unformed] phenomena of non-voting and some kind of movement or whatever you want to call more intentional activism.
Cueball made some comments along those lines upthread. I asked some questions about those. If you don't like the questions, go for a blank slate or pick up from what you have said already.
Well from what I know of you. You could take a few simple steps. The first step is to annouce to the NDP that you refuse to vote in any upcoming elections, until the NDP make electoral reform plank in its official platform, including economic disinsentives that make it difficult for individuals and other organizations to develop electoral profilce. That said, the organization itself might be useful, so there is no need to turn in your party card. In fact, you should promote the idea that the NDP should take a direct roll in organizing and supporting extra-party activties, and start working on committees directly involved with community activism that interest you, and seeing what you can do to get the party to give concrete support to non-party progressive organizations, while observing and promoting the position of a principled non-voter.
