Voting is meaningless when representatives are powerless in the face of greater forces. For democracy to work, we first of all need to wake up to reality. There is something profoundly wrong with our political system. As the global capitalist system starts to crack at its very core, political life has become like a terrifying nightmare: your house, engulfed in flames, collapses all around you, but no matter how fast you run, the door only seems to move ever further away. Gradually, it slips out of focus altogether and you fall down. You try to shout, but no one seems to hear. You shout again, but you don’t have a voice. There’s no sound. Just a clinging hand and a desperate hiss.
