It may well be that to vote is to endorse the very system we oppose. It has become so much an article of faith that one has a duty to vote if one seeks to change the direction the country is moving in. However if it makes no difference since all the power is concentrated at the top and is meted out in a miserly fashion and generally to those who kowtow to the party line then the best way to oppose the system is to boycott the voting process that gives it credibility.

This could easily become a way to expose the corrupt nature of the system especially the way in which the public mind has been conditioned through the controlled media and how the votes are allocated to candidates chosen by the oligarchy no matter how the people actually vote. There is much else that could be used to build a case against supporting the system through voting and the boycott could become a way to propagate the message of liberty.

The OP article was written 56 years go and the same conditions apply today but writ large. In other words nothing has really changed and the system has simply grown more corrupt. Perhaps it really is time to think outside the box. To continue doing the same things when they are not working is as we know the definition of insanity.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
