By Tim Dunlop Posted October 17, Whether it's the media or the MPs that trivialise politics isn't the point. The point is it enforces the status quo. AAP There are three drivers in Australian politics - the parties, the voting system and the media - that are all connected and self-supporting.
And all are conspiring to hollow out our democracy, writes Tim Dunlop. To listen in on any halfway serious discussion of politics these days is to eavesdrop on a cacophony of dissatisfaction.
Issues come and go, but the underlying unease remains no matter how much we vent or how many logical arguments we make about a given issue. The reason the whole kabuki is so unsatisfactory is because we spend too much time worrying about the day-to-day issues rather than addressing the underlying drivers of our problems.
There are a number of these drivers, but three in particular need our attention if we are ever to move out of the rut we are in.
All three are all intimately connected. The Hollowing of Western Democracy: The age of party democracy has passed. Although the parties themselves remain, they have become so disconnected from the wider society, and pursue a form of competition that is so lacking in meaning, that they no longer seem capable of sustaining democracy in its present form.

On the Coalition side, it increasingly means an obsession with discipline and punishment as they seek relevance in those areas where they still have some traction, such as border control, surveillance, and terrorism.
We, the people, don't so much disengage as despair. The voting system Our voting system in the Lower House, the place where government is formed, is specifically designed to channel votes, via the preference system, to the two major parties.
