VOTING

When people argue incremental improvement as the basis for their voting habits there is something important to remember. It is not that you want the perfect candidate or law, but that whatever you are voting for should at least, remove harm, not cause a little less. Or to put it another way, death by drowning might be better than death by fire, but wouldn’t you rather not support either? This of course assumes you believe that voting is not a way of asserting force against other people or that force is ok.
