An anonymous reader writes: What is the point of democracy if you are forced to choose the lesser of two evils? If you were an employer you'd re-advertise, particularly if it was an important, responsible position. There is something terribly wrong with this country. An awareness of current affairs shows we are drifting towards a boiled frog situation. It seems that those who are chosen to govern are more interested in furthering their own short-term selfish endeavours, than genuinely helping the people of today and tomorrow. But how could that be, as an advanced, developed, civilized nation, surely educated people with common sense would speak up. Maybe they have, but have they been heard and heeded? As a citizen what can you do? What do current protests achieve to change things? Violence is not the answer, though some leaders who claim to be Christian would have you believe differently. Everybody needs an accessible, peaceful, simple, united way of standing up and saying, "we want something better". As somebody who likes to solve problems, I believe a 'No Confidence' option on the ballot is a strong step in the right direction. But what if the majority chooses that? Either we find somebody better to represent us, and/or we enter into consultation to improve the system, rather than maintaining the status quo. What do you think?
