Not Apathetic

Tell the world why you're not voting - don't let your silence go unheard

They're not voting because...

Parties are less interested...

Parties are less interested in people and more about staying in power. The whole system is flawed.

Max replies: There are three main types of power:
1. Economic power. Those who own the largest amount of wealth can use it to control those they exploit.
2. Political power. These are agents of the above and control people through the legal and administrative rules. They also hope a few crumbs may come their way from the wealthy capitalists they work for.
3. Power at a distance. Those who use weapons to control and kill people without having to actually come in contact with them.
Perhaps it gives these groups a sexual buzz. If so it's time we stopped handing over control of our world to them, and think about taking over the responsibility ourselves.

About Not Apathetic

NotApathetic was built so that people who are planning not to vote in the UK General Election on May 5th can tell the world why. We won't try to persuade you that voting is a good or a bad idea - we're just here to record and share your explanations. Whether ideological, practical or other, any reason will do.

A lot of users would like us to mention that if you spoil your ballot paper, it will be counted. So if you want to record a vote for "none of the above", you can.
