TokenBoomer,

So you’re a Maoist? /s

TokenBoomer,

Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.

Marie Curie

TokenBoomer,

Yeah, China and its 1.4 billion people aren’t doing well at all since it collapsed last year. /s

TokenBoomer,

Beginning of the Iraq war was worse. You couldn’t dissent. At least with this one there is small voice of dissent.

TokenBoomer,

Bullying people into voting for your candidate is not helping, and potentially could be hurting. Unless, maybe that’s your intention.

TokenBoomer,

Basically, vote for my guy or your an ebil person. /s

In their moral justification, the argument of the lesser evil has played a prominent role. If you are confronted with two evils, the argument runs, it is your duty to opt for the lesser one, whereas it is irresponsible to refuse to choose altogether. Its weakness has always been that those who choose the lesser evil forget quickly that they chose evil.

TokenBoomer,

Sorry if I don’t trust a keyboard warrior over one of the most influential political theorists of the 20th century.

We get organized. We get educated. We get active. If you feel led to vote, fine, but if all you do is vote, “we the people” are going to lose.

Congress and Republicans will limit or regress (see Roe ) any improvements by the population. The system was set up to limit the power of the people.

The reality is that only a consistent strong social movement can influence the ruling powers. They know this. So with media and consumerism, they have created a Controlled Opposition, with the illusion of concessions. There is a reason wealth inequality is worse than the gilded age of the robber barons, but there are no revolts.

Our society is too polarized and fragmented to effect real change. Voting for Biden is like using buckets 🪣 of water to keep the boat afloat. We’re still sinking.

It will take a catalyst. An economic crash, natural disaster, another pandemic, etc. to provide the space for mobilization to effect change through organization. Everyone is sleeping on the climate crisis and the droughts, food shortages and mass migration that will eventually cause global destabilization. That’s why inflation is here to stay and the rich are building bunkers. They know the jig is up and are planning accordingly.

Vote for the lesser evil, or don’t, it won’t stop the boat from sinking. I would love to be wrong; I hope I am.

TokenBoomer,

Politically, the weakness of the argument has always been that those who choose the lesser evil forget very quickly that they chose evil.

Hannah Arendt

TokenBoomer,

Both parties are neoliberal. You have to be willfully ignorant to not see it.

TokenBoomer,

Finally. Thanks for getting to the civil rights movement and the white flight of the Dixiecrats.

TokenBoomer,

I have no idea what you’re talking about.

TokenBoomer,

I hope you find peace at some point in your life.
