: : : A boycott alone does that---and more: a boycott adds to the complaint that not even a Green in the White House would make a difference. And that conclusion is a revolutionary conclusion: it means the White House (etc.) must go.

SDF: There is no difference between "boycotting" an election and being too busy to make it to the polls. No assumptions can be made about mass consciousness on the basis of failure to vote.

: That's right! If that were true then I might inclined to percieve political apathy to be the result of satiating effect of the largess of capitalism. Barry doesn't let me do that but he sure sees things his way when it suits him.

Funny, indeed. It's only the POOREST PEOPLE who don't vote (The Nation, 11 November 1996, p. 5). I thought it was the RICH who were 'satiated.'

Stuart's greatest line: 'Better for you to get very hungry and find out what a blessing that menial job really is.'

That'll keep 'em going to the polls!
