Voting vs. Direct Action

Voting vs. Direct Action

This short zine from Crimethinc provides arguments against voting and electoral politics in favor of direct action. It also includes a section titled “12 Myths about Direct Action” that deals with common criticisms of direct action.


Voting is glorified as “freedom” in action. It’s not freedom -— freedom is getting to decide what the choices are in the first place, not picking between Pepsi and Coca-Cola. Direct action is the real thing. You make the plan, you create the options, the sky’s the limit.
