  1. Eine sehr gute Analyse unseres heutigen neoliberalen Systems im Zusammenspiel unserer westlichen repräsentativen “Demokratien” die sich im Wesentlichen darauf beschrönken, dass sich die Einflussmöglichkeit des Wählers darauf beschränkt, dass er alle 4-5 Jahre für 10 Sekunden in der Wahlkabine im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes seine Stimme abzugeben hat.
