But back to your (more important) point: The fact is that there is, in most countries, no decent parties arguing for restructuring should send shivers through everybody's spines.

It should also clue them that the "decent" parties are, unfortunately, useless and that they need a new reform party pledged to tear down the existing system and investigate all potentially prosecutable offenses. The best solution might be for disaffected voters to all join one existing splinter party and revise its agenda to create such a "reform" party. If enough banded together and announced their intention of doing so, they might have splinter parties lining up to compete for the privilege of lending their current status to this new purpose.

As the Dutch said while fighting the Spanish: "It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
