As an anarchist I have fundamental issues with voting, only participating on a local level and rarely do that. But, recently came across a guy running for US president in 2020, Andrew Yang, who wants to institute a UBI, Medicare for all, as well as a multitude of other state capitalism type social programs. The dude doesn't stand a chance, but it got me thinking. Is it bad praxis to participate in propping up new 'leaders' like this if it is a stepping stone to free up time for individuals allowing for more radical organizing?
I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this. Some discourse would be nice.
