David Foster Wallace on Voting Apathy.

“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and to give you every possible reason to stay at home. By all means stay home if you want, but there is no such thing as not voting: You either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home.”
