Are anarchists, libertarians, and communists the only critics? That doesn't seem entirely true. ReverendG 21:49, 2 July 2006 (UTC)
Indeed; Nazi Germany opposed electoralism, Fascist Italy, and many right-wing dictatorships; so called "enlightenment dictators" as Napoleon opposed it. Many without party or political bent opposed it. Many philosophers from Plato onward opposed it in principle. Much can still be written on this topic; a very narrow angle is what we have: but that is fine for the time being; most wikipedia articles begin with one individual who has knowledge of only one specific direction of the topic well enough to delineate the subject matter in a written encyclopedic manner. Our criticism of the criticism article however is necessary for those with good attested examples of other manners and historical instances, verifiable quotes and all, of criticisms of electoralism to come forth out of the woodwork and contribute their particular facet or pinch of knowledge. We beseech the reader to do so and gladly if it is to their interest they do so. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:14, 12 September 2009 (UTC)
