If democracy has been corrupted by military, intelligence, media and financial power, then isn't a person just a sucker for those powers when they maintain a subscription to it as a supreme guiiding principle?
As a more concrete example: If you have a population brainwashed to think that voting for a bunch of people who will murder them is rational, then what use is democracy?
Doesn't democracy have its limits?
Isnt one of those biggest limits when the mind of the electorate is controlled and defined by tyrannical power.
When I raised the issue I was thinking of strategy. When you have a hegemonic party that controls the media, the education system, the whole infrastructure, wanting to oppose it and defeat it through honest FairPlay is simply naive. You run against a power that has so deeply perverted democracy, that using the status quo hoping to reach people honestly is bound to fail. Many people have been conditioned through the media to love their oppressors: somebody at the Sunday Open Labour day said the poor don't even vote Labour. Through a very systematic media campaign the vast majority have been divided and conquered : to lay the blame against each other. To blame immigrants and benefit "scrounges" when the political power is silently destroying the lower and middle class. To reverse this effect you cannot simply honestly talk to people and make them elect their own saviours. They have become their own enemy. You have to be as agile and strategic as your opponents lest laughable and desperate failure occurs. Dire times call for dire measures. Harsh is necessary.
So if you have to campaign to deselect Corbyn opponents, do it. We all cannot afford to let the runs of the electoral system solve the problem.
