Re: Charades for Progress
Writes Colman McCarthy:
Elections are charades for progress, marginal to the direct democracy of citizens getting involved personally and enduringly to create the conditions in which a just and peace-directed world can be created. Votes aren’t needed to tutor at a literacy center, or mentor a student, ease a neighbor’s pain or toil at any one of thousands of useful programs. Voting isn’t needed to live simply or nonviolently.
