Why Would One Have Anything To Do With the Kangaroo Election?

Good thing for the voters. They're all exhibiting diminished capacity. If only their disruptions were more immediate/proximate and less global and all-pervasive.

For the most part I’ve been able to avoid the kangaroo election’s hype machine. I hear it mostly as jabbering in the distance. But it is peculiar stumbling upon it in the communications of people I know personally who I wish would know better than this.
.
There’s only two explanations which fit the evidence to explain why people are willing to have anything to do with this filth. Either they are fundamentalists of the cult of electoralism as such and feel that voting is literally sacred. In that case they’re like someone who hates the pastor and everything the church is doing but feels they must remain a member of that church nevertheless. (Or they claim to hate what the pastor is doing but inexplicably like him in spite of that.)
.
Or, they’re like sports fans who cry and moan as their team loses and think the coach needs to be sacked but can’t stop themselves from watching and agonizing over the game nevertheless. (Or they pick a team, evidently at random for all it has to do with their lives and alleged principles, and then they cheer if their team wins.)
.
In either case, cultism or tribal fandom, it has zero to do with politics, and zero to do with any kind of result whatsoever. It has zero to do with reality, only with fantasy.
