There is every reason to think that electoral "politics" in the United States (and most places) is bullshit. For people who yearn for a very different world to get involved in this "process" -- which is almost entirely scripted by people who absolutely do not yearn for a very different world -- is a big waste of energy and commitment. The arguments here are addressed to the yearners, who I will call "radicals" -- people who recognize that the only real solution to the many problems facing humanity today is a qualitative, even epoch-making, change. When I say "we," I mean those of us who yearn for and work for such a change.
