Let me fail!

Some days ago, I was involved in the usual discussion with some friends that are committed to voting, under the assumption that voting is the natural action of Democracy. By expressing their vote, they still think they are “deciding” how the country policies and government should be carried out.

Me, again, once more, for the infinite time, I kept my position of abstention as the only reasonable, given the current circumstances.

One of my friends then posted something on FB like : “Please let me fail!”.

At first I thought he was in his right to make his choice, even if it meant a failure. But then, after a second thought, I wondered if that was actually so. For if he was already assuming he would fail, shouldn’t he be concerned about the consequences his decision would mean to the rest of us?

Shouldn’t he be allowed to fail, but only in his own private matters?

The vote

Voting is the action, that since those of us being contemporary had been aware, applies to make Society believe it’s itself the one to decide its’ own future.

The vote has no value. It’s not binding anymore, since with absolute independence from the electoral programme for which any government could have been elected, once in office, that same government will carry out a completely different programme, dissociated  from the latter, in response to an imposed agenda, which is always an open secret.

We are then witnesses and victims of our own naivety, and each time we exercise the vote, we do nothing but tripping over the same rock.

Voting turns that way, into an act of faith, but not in terms of confidence in the voted candidates (which is already gruesome in itself), but of the strong conviction it is a decision tool for the people. The proofs, ALL THE PROOFS, say almost always, if not always, EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE.

And thus, we keep on addressing our “Principle of Hope” to the wrong place. Because that is the way we’ve been taught. That is the way the wizards of tribe told us the story. Positive thinking. Continuity. Civilization. Control. Balance. All of this, would be ideal and irreproachable, if it wasn’t for it systematically (intentionally) leads to the same result.

Under the excuse of legitimacy of the vote, they (we) had also deceived us in the motto that says: “if you don’t vote, you cannot complain”. The only fact of being part of a Society, paying taxes, holding responsibilities in the day to day life, is what entitles, enables and gives us the right to complain.

We assent.

We consent.

We believe.

And we fall again.

It’s not insane to sustain contradictory concepts at the same time.

It’s insane  to think that things will change, in spite of the fact that we keep on doing always the same.
