2002. To Vote, in an Ex-state.
Freedom is more than democracy. Freedom is a
right to reject. The world circa 2002, was a circus with a lot of
tyranny and/or corruption - even in democracies:
- "national" tyrants can linger and crush their
people - with, or without USA
- tyranny-of-majority, or "national sovereignty," to oppress human-rights?
- not to mention: even some totalitarian states claim to be "truer" democracy
- the center is prone to oppressive-pressures (third-world state coups, etc.)
- bureauctratic subversion: e.g: Truman said that "do that" does not work.
- military-subversion: outlaw-behavior, with military-posts, state-coups, etc.
- states can commit atrocities, and employ agent-provocateurs
- lobbies to seed corruption, abuse-cliques
- election trickery: gerrymander, lieful-campaigns (unkept-promises)
- the elected may switch to other parties:
- if you voted the candidate, the old-party was unnecessary, yet credited.
- if you voted the party, the elected who switched away, carried your vote, too

- Too-coarse: Lump people together, in bands, to pick the "winner team."

- They can even tax future generations, as when a loan is borrowed by the state/government.
Where is the individual (freedom) left, then?
By contrast, affirmaze is a remedy, to avoid the problems of
various political philosophies, about
representation. I think, this is for
