No real choice

Sound familiar?
"The ping-pong of buzzwords and soundbites, the hunt for gaffes, the formulaic promises to "listen," the gurgle of briefings and punditry: the dismal spectacle has become familiar. For all its democratic claims, the election campaign serves mainly to obscure the truths about our unequal, unsustainable society. Its salient feature is the absence of real choice. Everything else flows from that."
