It seemed like such a logical assumption: of course the populace of a country wants to express their collective voice when establishing national governance!
Were we wrong?
We encountered an unforeseen curve ball: the majority of people don’t actually seem to care enough to participate, excusing themselves from all responsibilities to the democratic process on the grounds of political disillusionment, personality differences, illegitimate representational percentages, pseudo democratic processes, or some schpeel about a lack of “ideological resonance” with any parties in the running. Blah, blah, blah… I call bullshit.
Yes yes yes yes yes. I am guilty of this. That’s why I try not to complain. So many people complain all the time but never bother to try influencing our leaders. Wake up! Do the work!
