Don’t Vote?

Don’t vote? What does that imply? Not consenting through ballot to a corrupt system that imposes policy through physical, political, intellectual and economical force?

The first video posted is produced independently and contains an individual named Stefan articulately posing the challenge “don’t vote” with all earnestness. The second video is quite literally a government-produced propaganda piece with giant, Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Annistan and Ashton Kutcher posing the same challenge as the first video, but this time sarcastically.

My question is this: which video is condescending and insulting to your intelligence?  Which video makes you feel suspicious of the producer and speaker’s motivation?  Which one makes you feel truly hopeless politically and which one makes you feel optimistic about humanity and humanity’s future?  Which one makes you want to change your world?

Do not be fearful.  If we speak the truth, if we fill our hearts with love, hope, our minds with knowledge and enlightenment, we have nothing to fear.

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Ghandi

“We cannot change the world, we can only change our world.”

Joseph Campbell

I was actually so offended by the second video that I stopped watching it once they started prattling on about polar bears and melting ice.
