Plato Quote, the fallacy of political apathy.

“Those who are too smart to engage in politics are punished by being governed by those who are dumber.”

Too many times I've heard people describe politics as being for "the masses." What these people don't understand is that politics will affect them, no matter how apathetic they are. I'm not necessarily saying to vote, but at least make the effort to be educated about current issues and how we can resolve them.


  1. Really, it does make sense, but a lot of people just aren't interested, so they don't participate.
