(en) Czech, afed.cz: A3 - If elections could change something ... [machine translation]

Date Wed, 19 Oct 2016 11:16:35 +0300

After regional elections a man is where he was, regardless of whether they go or not. Download, print and spread the October issue of the wall newspaper A3. ---- ... A long time ago by the ban - said once known anarchist Emma Goldman. For us, it therefore pays almost one hundred percent if we mean the result of an act of an ordinary man who naively hoped that his will was thrown into the ballot box (and the election) will affect the immediate course of the world and the plight manage our common affairs. ---- Elections can change anything except the mafia and political, partisan and formed their tails. It is a mafia built more than two decades, it is nice to see just on the regional elections. In the last ones, which were held this October, although somewhere Babišfertu winning team, but a coalition of all those who already took the troughs him immediately after the announcement of results in faithful compliance from those troughs vyšachovala. But he has somehow can pull this minister kulak what drives like a company, which is the sole shareholder dividends harvesting to him on a silver tray to bring obedient employees and gullible voters. They probably just shake their eyes. That was a successful fair patriotic racist who chose paradoxical fellows - no less racist Japanese immigrant.

Who goes to the polls and you can also make your own judgment about how to really supervises the activities of candidates, the second time actually has plenty to choose from. Just do not see all the corruption in which the election is gradually strong, but weaker stomachs tangled, but also those nesankcionované little things that offend their bluntness. For example, when burrowing beneath her black councilor makes election advertising in public space and as an ordinary citizen for the position of flowerpots in front of the entrance to pay a fine for abuse of public space as well, it is no longer just a moral disappointment aside. Despite the complete lack of respect when the box with the inscription "Do not throw leaflets" hunt election enticements paper promising that candidates are there just to meet our wishes. If it is so, then test again a citizen to vote, thinking that another new councilor will not join the established social order, can his naivete and will repeat the same mistake over and over only envy.

The path to the urn is thus similar way to bet is placed each week, thinking that one day it has to go, although inexorability statistics testifies about something completely different. What is the joy when we once in their life will return an amount equal to the monthly contribution into this silly business. On the other hand, it is understandable that people want to preserve at least the rest of their own honor, thus suggesting that perhaps they can influence public life (do we have a democracy). Although naively need to assess the state of health care by hospital room comfort and architectural design of hospital areas, it is not quite possible to deny them the least civic efforts within the law.

From this perspective, the result is a wonderful balance of this year's regional elections in the East traditional pravicákove (before November '89 the traditional bolševikove): "Homeless Alexander Salak and punks Stephen Malek ... narrowly escaped place in the council of the. With hundreds of preferential A3 votes ended up as alternates just behind the leaders in a joint electorate Pirates and green, "he wrote media. We can of course speculate about why people living the life of a typical small-town voted for the homeless, but one reason is clearly offers: homeless person spends almost all his time among ordinary people, he knows them and they know it. Talking together about all that is important to them, and speak frankly. The homeless man knows very well what it means to live with dignity and cohesion and solidarity of the underprivileged. Perhaps he would be able to stand as an elected representative, but, frankly, is rather good that among the current politikárský clan will have to occur.

When the absolute majority of candidates from among people who know and understand our life as a homeless person, it will be a completely different situation ... And perhaps it will be precisely those choices that could make a difference. So it is the top Disable. Until then, people who can not help themselves and they want to vote, whether levied homeless and punks. Previously served this purpose well Haškova party of moderate progress within the law.

We, the anarchists, but rather we will continue to keep out of the ballot box and the rules written by those whom they serve, therefore, economic and political elites. We will prefer to work hard to materialize the vision of a bottom-organized structures where the decision-making can join at any time, not just for a few hours every couple of years.
