Re democracy; there is no democracy. Democracy is an illusion perpetuated by those that exploit its alleged freedoms. Changing electoral policy, demanding greater accountability will not give us democracy. While we have capitalism and power and wealth in the hands of the few, we shall remain a plutocracy. If you’re happy with that, go ahead and ‘tweak’ the system. If not, civil disobedience and non-violent revolution suggest the way forward.
