Comment, Comics and the Contrary.
A General Election will be held some time in the next few months, and the smart money seems to be on May 5th as being the day of the vote. It seems appropriate to post this depressing reminder of the limits of democracy conceived as simply a system of electing governments. I have argued here before, and will argue again, that democracy demands the active participation of all people in the debates of government, from the drawing up of the agenda to the determining of policy.
But until we move towards that state of government, here is your lifetime supply of democracy at the General Election ballot box:
x x x x x x x x x x x
What an articulate contribution to the debate. Please do not steal the pencil.
