A certain friend of mine made an analogy and I want to know your guys' thoughts on it.

A guy takes some hostages, and then puts in a suggestion box. Putting a suggestion in the box is silly and futile but it isn't aggression. He also said something like the guy is a hostage and will be one regardless of whether or not he puts suggestion in.

But you're not suggesting things yourself. You're voting for the things the state approves to be votable.

The problem is most people don't recognize the state as a hostage taker.

This is why I don't vote. When other people think of a voting anarchist, hypocrisy comes to mind. Avoiding that is enough of a benefit that it outweighs the benefits of voting.

Peeing into the wind probably outweighs the benefits of voting.

Lolz I've thought it was useless for a while too (even when I was a minarchist), only recently did I give it up completely.

There's the old "Warring for Peace is like Fucking for Chastity"

I think we should change that to "Voting for Anarchy is like..."

The only problem with your new saying is that anarchy is going to get associated with chastity.  Anarchists need to get laid more.  "Can't we all just get a schlong?"
