Spoilers: nothing but hot air. Really


Recommended Posts

"Real choice", "alternative", "new directions" are all great words. The quagmire is very real. The incumbents have decisively turned into exploring their own navels, to the maximum depth and time possible and cannot come up with new directions for the countries, and candidates to lead it.

But the spoilers aren't there for that reason. They are there to pump hot air, and fish in the muddy waters. These times, of vague uncertainty have always been the prime season for all kinds of political and social flotsam.

The choice is good if it results in representation of all voices, and votes. But in the binary system, there will be, always, only one winner. The spoilers aren't dumb to not know it. They are just not telling you. Not in their interests.

So by taking a vote from a candidate who could win, the spoiler, who has no chance of winning does nothing more than helping the other pretender. This is how the binary system works, it's not great; it's an imminent danger to democracy, but as of now this is how it works, and will work. The real change, a genuine path out of this conundrum cannot be found in more of unlikely and plain impossible words and promises.
