Not Apathetic

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

They're not voting because...

I don't believe in voting for "the least...

I don't believe in voting for "the least of two or more evils". By definition evil is evil, there are no grading systems. I don't want the blood of innocents or the misery caused by Governments on my hands. And yes, they are all the same in that regard. Every 'do-gooder' is interfering in someone else's life in some way. What right do they have to do this?

juliuss replies: Less evil = more good. And what's wrong with more good? Don't be so pessimistic: think of it as voting for the better person, not the less worse person.

Oh, really?

Rapist or Paedophile? Who is your favourite?

Gavin replies: We live in what is known as "society". That's why our lives are all necessarily intertwined. Unless we want to go back to being waring tribes, taxes etc are a necessary evil. As for the "all politicians are evil" argument, that surely requires an intimate knowledge of the pychology of at least a significant number of politicians - although I suppose it depends upon your definition of evil (I'm guessing most things qualify, by the sound of things).

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.
