Re: Voting is undemocratic

Results in elections in Turkey, Egypt, Russia, the US, etc. clearly demonstrate the bankruptcy of electoral politics. Selecting officials based on popularity, slogans and advertising seems a ludicrous way to govern ourselves.. Yet we persist, believing if we enact this or that reform, elect this or ...
