THAT is the threat to the system. THAT is why the media obssession and hysteria with voting. The argument is on this thread: Only this many people voted or wanted the winner. Why did so few vote? Because it didn't matter.
THIS is what undermines the system. The recognition of the evil nature of politics and refusal to participate in it. As long as people participate they are consenting to it, have faith in the state. Refusing to participate strips them of any pretense of legitimacy. Their aggression begins to be seen for what it is. Remain participatory and they do whatever they want and claim people want it or approve of it through cooked "polls". People who don't think see and hear those "memes" and think they are powerless.
