Democracy is over, but voting still matters

The abandonment of working people by the Labor Party in the UK is a clear example of how years of political hard work can seem to be for nothing.

The 1% is in big trouble with the peaking of cheap oil. Oil is what moves the economy, and the infrastructure is so big that they are faced with massive losses.

To keep in power, and keep their wealth, they hope to convince people through right-wing politics to accept mass unemployment and poverty by demonizing the unemployed and the poor.

Even if change through voting is effectively blocked, we cannot allow these right-wing parties to win large electoral victories. This would only send a chilling message around the world.
