: However in either instance voting is not enough, you must be prepared to become self-sufficient, engage in direct action and force authority to take notice, ideally the socialist individual should work towards a situation where they are their own doctor, union rep., police officer, defense force soldier etc. so they could preform any of these tasks, then they wont be forced into dependency on either the capitalist or the feeble, feeble, feeble state.

Any system of government must involve some element of control - even the perfect communist form, does because otherwise no-one would decide upon the allocation of resources. Thus, a form of control without the backing of the people is no more than glorified slavery.

: : McSpotlight: When has a democratic election included the chance to vote for a Marxist or Communist on an equal footing to the capitalist parties?
I can't answer that in relation to America. In Australia there is a communist party.
