You don’t have to vote for Joe Biden

From the incomparable Steven Salaita:

Listen. You don’t have to vote for Joe Biden. No matter how intensely you’re cajoled, nagged, and coerced, you have no obligation to confer power to a man you dislike or to humor a system anathema to your personal or political values (which should be one and the same, but anyway)–a system, remember, that managed to whittle contenders for its presidency, from a population of many millions, to an incoherent sexual predator and his foil. If for whatever reason you want to vote for Biden, fine. You can do that, too. Just quit trying to convince us that a passive, top-down spectacle predicated on guilt and discipline is exceptionally democratic.
