Default Re: Why I Do Not Vote

Peace Draken,

Very good article, indeed the modern democracy is nothing but dictatorship disguised.

Let's put it in simple words, a group of people living together in a small community, they have weekly meetings where every mature male participates, on behalf of his family that he has duely consulted. Gradually people start to skip these meetings, in which important decisions for the community are being made. So someone suggests that it would be easier if those who are not always free to participate, to give their vote to a representative whom they choose from the few regular members. Evereybody agrees, but now the regular members out of laziness and apathy, start disappearing, in the end, they leave all matters to that guy who suggested the evil idea of (representatives), not much time passes before he becomes a dictator, why? because the people has given him their responsbility willingly.

In "Submission", the family is the building block of the society, God commands the males to be in charge, but not to abuse their leadership, meaning that they must consult their family members before making a final decision. Now this family leader joins the meetings of his community as a representative on behalf of his family, similarly the community must reach a unanimous decision (through due consultation) and then the leader goes to a higher meeting on behalf of his community, this process continues till we reach one leader who makes decisions taking into consideration all these unanimous decisions or votes.

In modern democracy though, the individuals don't count, the representative makes the decisions without consulting them, which naturally leads to the monopoly of power in the hands of a few.

Every individual is responsible infornt of God for his decisions, dictatorship (either direct or subtle) negates this responsbility. If there was due consultation, no war would have ever been fought, because there will always be righteous people to object, and their voices would be heard.

[14:21] When they all stand before GOD, the followers will say to the leaders, "We used to follow you. Can you spare us even a little bit of GOD's retribution?" They will say, "Had GOD guided us, we would have guided you. Now it is too late, whether we grieve or resort to patience, there is no exit for us."

[17:36] You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them.

[42:38] They respond to their Lord by observing the Contact Prayers (Salat). Their affairs are decided after due consultation among themselves, and from our provisions to them they give (to charity).
