Today is the last day to register for South Africa's 2014 elections

There are many arguments for and against voting next year.

We are working towards a solution for our situation. Many argue that voting in this system is legitimising a corrupt, illegal system, which is all fair enough.

The problem is this, many people hate the hydrocarbon-driven internal combustion engine and we are working towards engines running on water and electric vehicles, but in the meantime, while working on those new engines and systems, we are still forced to drive petrol / diesel vehicles.

We have been working on those new technologies for decades and it would be many years before we get to using new technologies. In the meantime we cannot refuse to use petrol / diesel vehicles, because in so doing we'll never be able to get where we want or need to be. Whether we like it or not, we have to use what we have in order to get where we want to be.

We are still stuck in this system and we need to survive and fight for our rights right here in this system while we are stuck here. With no one in parliament to argue and fight on our behalf, to fight against racist BEE and AA Laws being passed, we would be dead in a year. We still have to be there and the stronger the voice we have inside the better the chances of us surviving until we get where we are hoping to end up.

Not voting is foolhardiness that cost us in the past.

What we need to agree on is who to vote for, which I've discussed in the past and explained why. If we cannot even agree on something as simple as that, how the heck could we ever agree on the solutions to much greater problems facing us in future.
