I can no longer find the Youtube video where Zizek said voting as a political process, over time, will not be a substantial, albeit pivotal-to-change necessity but just a democratic ritual. He did not dwell much on it. Here, I will try to explain his standpoint and viewpoint there. — Of course, every government is structured. A lack or absence thereof results in a massive catastrophe. In every government, functions (that is duties, responsibilities, accountabilities) and so on and so on are distributed to government officials and staff. Power, fundamentally, is given and limited. Authority has its scope and delimitations.
