First, the system derives its legitimacy from the participation of its people (in theory, its voters). The fewer voters it gets in comparison to its people, the less legitimacy it can claim.


Unfortunately, when a capitalist system loses its legitimacy (at least at this time), it turns to fascism, as we've seen more than once already.

Second, the least bad option might be the worse option in the long-run. If one believes that the US is already a fascist state, and has been for most or all of its existence, indirectly appointing the worst mouth breathing ogres known to man can expose this to more people and galvanize recruitment to your cause.


Ahh yes, accelerationism, the infantile disorder. Recruiting people to your cause has no value unless those people can be effectively mobilized, which is extremely hard to do when they are being purged by a fascist state. And if numbers alone determined victory, then we would have had socialism long, long ago.

@Morgan Le Fey I understand your politics is just "thumbing your nose at the Imperium" with zero regard as to whether or not that actually accomplishes anything. Thanks for proving my point.
