Your Money or Your Life

Oftentimes, when I tell people that I don’t vote for (or against) politicians or political parties, they act as though this meant I weren’t a “free person”… or as if I were giving up some of my democratic freedoms.

Quite the contrary: I choose not to vote for people involved in these organizations. At the same time, I engage very much in promoting other organizations.

In my opinion, when people think that their freedom is exercised by voting in political elections, then they are actually limiting their own freedom to choosing nothing more than left or right, yes or no,… — indeed: a very limited number of choices (basically, it usually boils down to an “either / or” choice — much like when being held up at gunpoint and being given these two options: “your money or or life?”).

Since I know many words, I can compose a vast number — perhaps even an infinite amount — of choices. I am not limited to simply grunting “yea” or “nea”, to banging on the ground with a club, or anything like that.
